I knew I would not get anything painted today. We left the house at 7:30am to go to Lankenau Hospital for Linda's pre-op testing and cardiac exam. All went well despite rush hour traffic going into Philadelphia. Arriving home at 4pm making it a full day. Linda is good to go... Knee replacement on May 21. I decided after all that I deserved a bike ride! I still might get something accomplished later tonight.
This Sunday you can find me:
Day Festival Sunday, May 6~Booth #26 ~ 11am to 4pm
Held at Everhart ParkW. Union & S. Brandywine Ave
West Chester, PA~FREE!
My goal is to join the other accomplished artists in the "Painting A Day" arena. I am expecting this endeavor to sharpen my painting skills and to help me grow as a watercolorist. I already paint full time and exhibit at art shows but I am hoping this experience will allow me to explore subjects I would not normally choose to paint. I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. Andy Smith
ABOUT THE PAINTINGS:
Each watercolor is painted on Arches 300lb Cold Press paper. I use transparent watercolors occasionally adding ink to the wash. I paint in a series of washes to build color, creating shadows and a strong use of light.
The PAINTING A DAY paintings started January 1, 2007.
Variations in monitor settings plus my camera skills may not exactly duplicate the actual colors in the painting. I do my best!
I plan to work in two sizes.
An image of 5"x5" with a 1/2" border or
an image of 4"x6" with a 1/2" border.
You will need to take your new painting to a frame shop to be framed. For shipping, each miniature original watercolor will be placed in a protective sleeve with a foamcore back.
The new paintings will be posted for sale via Ebay. Paintings that do not sell at auction are then placed on my show stand at a price commensurate to my other work.
