PAINTOUT, Florence, Italy..This area is Lungarno Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici..I tried it on Yupo paper with watercolors.. I enjoy painting on this paper, but I realize it will take a lot of practice to really get the effect I want.. To check the talent of other artists go to http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/

Well, this is my first oil painting with some direction from Kathryn....There is soooooo much to learn...Now I know why they say you should paint "every day"....Don't really have the time to do that, but I'm trying....As you can see, there is difinately something missing in this work.. I'm afraid to work on it some more for fear of messing .... Anyone have some suggestions.????... Will work more on it and post again during the week.....Thanks for checking my blog......

Well, we finally got to paint yesterday...My first picture wasn't worthy of posting, but after Kathryn left, I decided to try a picture from an old photo...It only took me about 1/2 hour and behold, I actually like the outcome.... Probably a little more planning and consentration it could be better...Maybe I'll try it with oil next week....
Thanks for checking.
