QUIET MOMENT
ON FABRIANO PAPER
 
Les mercredis après-midis, je participe à des ateliers de peinture avec d'autres peintres.  Nous avons un professeur qui nous laisse beaucoup de latitude. Aujourd'hui, il nous a montré les rudiments de l'encre de couleur.  Je me suis amusée avec ma trousse d'aquarelle  et j'ai fignolé avec ces encres pour finaliser les raisins. Les couleurs sont plus riches et crémeuses.  Une expérience à répéter!

On wednesday's afternoons, I paint with a group of friends and we are lucky to have a teacher who gives us directions and lots of freedom.   Today, we played with colored ink, similar to water painting but the feeling is different and the colors richer. I painted  the raisins with both mediums and the last two with watercolors.

j'aime surtout le deuxième et le troisième. Ils ont une lumière très belle, Helen. À propos des encres c'est vrai ce que tu dis. Ils donnent aux oeuvres une grande intensité. Hem...un chose à tenir en compte au moment de choisir les matériels qui peindront ce qu'on a d'abord à la tête et après entre les mains...

Gros bisous

You were busy. The piece with the grapes is my favorite. Some nice crisp edges and the lime green against the purple reds just sings.

It's time for more snow here in my world. You'd think I would be busy painting like you are Helen but I am a slacker today. I am watching the snow pile up and that's all. Some days are like that. I hope you are not having more snow or problems with ice flows from rivers. Happy painting!

Hi Helen,

I wanted to thank you so very much for my wonderful portrait. I think it is gorgeous and it arrived safely! Really a beautiful piece and for once, I even look kinda pretty!
