Acrylic Painting Videos: Sunset Over the Everglades

Image
Last month I had planned on attending a plein air painting gathering at the edge of the Everglades while the sun set. Unfortunately we had such terrible storms that day, that the event was cancelled. So as I had that timeslot open, I decided to do a Facebook Live while I painted a sunset over the everglades, just from my imagination. I had to edit the video because I couldn't figure out how to turn the Facebook Live off LOL! The painting is available for sale in my Etsy shop KarenPruzanskyDesign.  Enjoy the videos and if you have any questions about paint brand, colors, tools or techniques I used, feel free to comment below.

Quilting, Creativity, and Letting Go of Perfection

Quilting is a precise skill.  We are taught to cut each triangle perfectly right.  If not, your points will not come together and your quilt will be lopsided.  Follow directions to the "T" is what we are taught.
There were a lot of trianges to cut for this quilt.  I cannot recall the size the triangles were supposed to be, but I read that it was best to cut long strips of fabric and then with a rotary cutter, cut the triangles from strips.  Yeah Yeah Yeah.
Not having a large enough table or even surface to cut the proper size strips, and not owning a rotary cutter, I created a triangle using the dimensions given from a paper bag.  Then I cut the triangle by pinning the paper bag pattern to the fabric and cutting one by one.  Realizing that that was going to take a lot of time, I made a few more paper bag triangle patterns, and pinned them all close together on the fabric.  That also took a long time to cut out.  Then I stacked the fabric, first two layers, then three, and d…

Watercolor Orchids

Image
Every so often I enjoy going outside to do a sketch and paint something that is in my garden. I enjoy watercolor paints outdoors as they are easily portable and easy to clean up. If I don't want to carry my easel outside and set up (I will write about how I do that in a separate post), I will bring one of my art journals that I made with watercolor paper.

To see my step by step process to create this drawing and watercolor painting, please go to my Teachable website and sign up to the FREE "class" Infinate Possibilites. See you there!
