New Painting ..... Gnome


This was sooooo much fun to paint.....

Line drawing from a vintage painting book by Don Weed.  I saw several I want to paint.
Because there aren't any "real" painting instructions I got to pick my own palette of colors so that was a fun challenge..... I like to "ad lib" when I am painting....adding something here or there, not using an element, matting, background colors, etc.   etc.  and is basically the do it yourself  technique  that motivated Don Weed to do the book the way he did....interesting concept that I totally agree with.......
