The latest news in my artistic life
Hello Robin,very impressive work.. NY must have been good for you..
Robin, these both are wonderful but i gotta say...that first one is breathtaking! the depth and light you caught is very dramatic!
Hi Robin, Seeing your pictures brings back all the wonder of the weekend in New York. I love your tree with the brilliant lights in the background and the suggestion of forms in the foreground. It has a wonderful, free, spontaneous feel to it. Did you work it more later or was in completely finished in that 45 minute period at the end? It was a pleasure to meet you and Mary. Hopefully, we will all have a chance to come together some time in the future for more work with our wizard.
A very atmospheric pastel robin, well doneronell
This is so inspiring. I've visited the sites of several people who were at this class with you. Guess I'm with you in spirit? I live in the Southwest, and we have this glorious light at the start and end of the day, so I'll try to look and learn from what you've done and record some of it.
I really like these two - especially the top one. It's so inspiring to see what can be done with just a few lines and the play of light...
Yay! Welcome back! Thanks for the peek. These have a sense of not being from Southern CA - - I'm looking forward to different scenes from your trip and hearing thoughts on your journey there and back ... Welcome home, Robin.
Martin - Hi! Yes it was very good for me. Now to put what I soaked up into use.
Billie - yes I agree, just an emotional connection went into that one. It was the end of the three days, I was tired, but did not want to waste the light, and it was ...JUST DO IT time.
Sue - Hi yes it was a great weekend.As for that last piece I did, that was it. I have not added a thing to any of my pastels. Rarely do when working plein air. I have found I tend to push them in the wrong direction.
Ronell - thank you for stopping by. Your comments are always appreciated.
Margie - thank you for being here in spirit. Yes, Michael says to find something in the light that you will love to paint/draw. If it isn't in the light it will be boring, even if it is a beautiful subject. So you have the first ingredient already working for you.
juj - yes the is such fun to witness lights playfulness. Some can get rather cranky watching it change. I am in awe at the movement and colors.
Wendee - I promise to get that up soon. I have been making a paperdoll of myself this week to put on all the different hats and outfits I need to wear. Gosh.. maybe if I scan it I can make a clone of myself.
Robin, you did such an excellent job on all of yours, although I knew you would. Seeing these makes me feel nostalgic for the wonderful time I had meeting everyone and doing this workshop.
I've been looking forward to these pastels, Robin. You've done a brilliant job of chasing the light and bringing it home. It must have been a wonderful workshop. Envy, envy but looking so looking forward to more of the same.
Robin, the light definitely captures the viewers eyes in these pieces. The second is like a river of gold, just lovely. The trees look solid and comforting.I look forward to seeing more once life settles down a bit for you.
Robin, your work is such a feast for the eye - the colour is superb!
