I very rarely ever paint, just because I am not very good at it in comparison to pencil drawings. The Napa fair is coming up, so I thought, what the heck, I might as well whip out a painting for the painting division. I do think this is my best painting so far.

Enjoy!!!

Thanks. Here is another one I whipped out yesterday. Also going to the fair. This one was much smaller, only 9 x 12. The first painting i believe is 16 x 20.

Awesome work! I'm a little nervouse to get into painting. I recently bought all the supplies, but I'm procrastinating cause I'm worried I'll fail at it. I'm much more comfy with a pencil.

I say go for it. You may not be happy at first, but as with anything, the more practice you get it, the better you get. I know canvases are relatively expensive for "practice" pieces, but that's what gesso is for. Gesso is this great white liquid that you can use to cover a botched painting and start over. Though I'd recommend only doing gessoed paintings for practice. I haven't had much luck with them.

I actually have only done maybe as many paintings as I have fingers on my hands, so VERY little experience, but I think even a little practice has gone a long way (even if these were my first paintings in about a year...lol)


This was actually the first painting I ever did. It was a gesso of a gessoed painting...lol.

Nice paintings! :)
Good colour and shading, pleasant to look at.

Just start, you won't succeed if you don't try :P
