Title: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: Karen on February 23, 2012, 12:48:59 PM
I painted along _ Nice clear instruction even in those difficult circumstances where you had to be the cameraman
And demonstrate too Nolan. Please let us know how your wife is, I think we are all concerned.

thank You all for these comments. It's was fun to paint this and Nolan made it easy Though I think my wood came from different trees to his.
Anya and those those who didn't watch  - Nolan had to cope with a site crash and a medical emergency at home  Dennis took his wife to hospital

Karen... your work is truly amazing.  Well done... mmm, can I please have one of those jellybeans... i can taste it already  ;D

I didn't know about Nolan's wife being ill, shame man that is really terrible news.  I truly wish for her to get better soon and recouperate completely.  :flowers:  Poor Nolan, and to have a crashed site at the same time. Nolan here is a  :1hug: for you.  Thinking of you and your family, please let us know how your wife is doing.  I agree with Karen, I think we are all concerned.  You are all after all 'family'. ;)

Ditto from me!  Karen, you have such a great way with words.

I regret I had to miss the wood painting class.  Karen, you gave me a nice sneak peek.   :thankyou:  Nice work!

Amazing to think Nolan soldiered on through the class without Dennis to do the camera work and he sure must have been stressed over his wife's condition. 

Here's my hug, Nolan :1hug:

 :pray:  your wife has a speedy and complete recovery.

Helenty, you've done a fine job of this and, it's great that you shared it with us.
Well done :)  :clap: :clap:
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: GailBrown on March 24, 2012, 10:15:36 AM
OK so here is my attempt at faux wood.  I found this a little challenging, and the jelly beans were probably the most fun. I think when/if the wood is a smaller factor in the painting such as in the one Nolan is doing now, getting it to look so much like wood may not (hopefully) be quite such a challenge
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: nolan on March 24, 2012, 11:40:26 AM
well it came out lovely Gail  :clap: well done. I especially like the gaps between the wood and the reflections, great job.

Usually wood forms part of the background in a still life and is not painted in such detail, but you need to know how to achieve the detail first. That way you can easily suggest the detail by using the correct techniques, just to lesser degree. Hope that made sense?
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson

Hi everyone,
Here is my jelly beans and wood surface.
I think I might have put the nails at wrong place. I really enjoyed this lesson. It doesn't quite look like wood, only when I took all the mask tape off, and wend off for a cup of tea, then when I came back suddenly I felt it does look like a wood surface! Thanks Nolan!

Alice

Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: Germa on October 16, 2013, 01:50:34 AM
The wood is great, I love the knot in the lowest plank.

I just keep looking at your signature, does it really say 'Nolan' or is it a lookalike of Nolan's signature?
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: nolan on October 16, 2013, 11:28:16 AM
I think you have managed to get a very good wood effect. I especially like the knot and the screws, very realistic  :clap: :clap: :clap:

please don't copy my signature  :knuppel2:

I followed Nolan step by step all the way to the end, so of course, the signature, before I even realize it, it is aleardy done that way.... :uglystupid2:  will try to make it look different in my next painting  :heeha:

Alice
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: Germa on October 17, 2013, 12:25:29 AM
Just use your own signature Alice.
In fact, when I paint the classes and really follow Nolan step by step, I don't put my signature on it since the painting isn't really 'mine'.
There are some copyright restrictions on paintings you make, following the classes, and when I don't change anything in the painting, something that makes it really different, than I don't sign it; just to be on the safe side.

According to Dutch law, I could sign them as:  Paintbasket/ Germa

Thanks for that information Nolan, didn't know it worked that way.

But than, I think I'll write it on the back, as Val does, so my children of hb don't sell it when I would drop dead.  :crazy2: ;D
Maybe I'm very famous by that time, and when the media discover that you were my teacher, you will share in my fame, as it should be.  :2funny:

Oh boy, now I want to know why there is tape around your canvas...

Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson

Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: V on November 29, 2013, 02:10:16 AM
 :tooth:  No plaster. Just to keep it neat
Its still wet. Its like sticky when I lightly touch. I might have to do the drapery folds while still waiting.
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: Germa on November 29, 2013, 03:04:16 AM
Is it a stretched canvas or a canvas board you're working on?
I always paint from edge to edge and don't keep neat edges on my  paintings.  :-\
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: V on November 29, 2013, 02:45:32 PM
Canvas board. I didnt feel like working on the whole canvas but prefer to be neat :P. While the white object and glazing, I wanted that framed look.
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: ImBatman on November 30, 2013, 02:15:32 AM
It's actually a very handy way to get a framed look on those thinner "Single-thick" stretched canvas - paint the edging in the style of the frame - then tape - then paint the real painting. I've used it before with a black "frame."

Does the trick well vjah.

Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: nolan on November 30, 2013, 02:23:19 AM
I see a lot of artists tape the edge of their canvasses lately, then remove once the painting is finished, very popular at the moment  O0
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: Germa on November 30, 2013, 02:26:05 AM
I understand that way of working on stretched canvas, but not on a canvas board, since they are too flat to hang them on a wall without a real frame.
On a stretched canvas, I like to paint the edges as if they are a part of the picture I paint.

But maybe Nolan is right and is it a very popular thing at this moment and maybe I am just an old fashioned old lady who sticks to traditional work too much. ;)  :2funny:
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson
Post by: V on November 30, 2013, 06:26:11 AM
One time, I saw a painting where the sides and top painted too for 3D effect, or stuff sticking out as part of painting. There was a lady, shes retired and she's experienced painter tired of "traditional" painting. She has painted realism, impressionistic and some other styles. So this was her new endeavor. She painted the word "Memories" in cursive old style kinda tilted and fading towards end of canvas. At the end she stuck those old film negatives curled. Really moving because I remember those when I was a kid  :D  and my grandma making a picture album. That was the first and only semester I attended a painting class at community college because I then switch to PB. Nothing wrong to stick to traditional painting Germa O0 .
Funny thing at the time, I thought I was in the wrong class. I have never painted before so I felt lost because everyone is doing their own thing and I just wanted to learn to paint and at the end I was even more confused  ;D .

Oh there is these little gadget where you can tack on the back and voila, instantly you can hang the canvas board without framing them. Or tack 2 on the wall and then rest the bottom painting between these hooks.

Not a fast learner but more like Excellent Teachers! All credits go to Dennis and Nolan. Lets Draw class really was my foundation and it was only 4 weeks not years. All the questions answered and I came out not confused! More like excited because I can try to explain, to myself. ;D  After the course, it made me see things differently and more curious  :nosey: why it looks like that. Then flashbacks to what they explained. So I get more information as I get my eye to 'see'. Then add the color mixing class and Voila! Of course, you have to put time for practice. Like, I did the color wheel Dennis taught and practice color mixings. I tried to get all shades of a color  ;D (OCD).
And here we are  :painting: .
 :thankyou:  Dennis and Nolan!

The cost of fluid is prohibitive for large areas.  Contact paper seems to be a better option for most projects.

I have done the wood effect in oil with the strawberies (2 classes in one) on a 10  x 10 inches canvas.  My strawberies and wood were taken from my kitchen table and photographed from a low angle not from the top. Any advice welcome.

my advice would be to add the same wood effect into the top left corner then to sell it :congrats:

Wow, Danielle, that's quite a painting.  Love the texture of the strawberry against the grain of the wood.

I did the wood in acrylic, but switched to oil for the jelly beans and the nails.  I don't feel ready for acrylics yet.

Great job, Annie. 

Your wood grain is really good.  Love those little worm holes in the center of the grain in the bottom slat.

Very nice wood painting effect Annie.  Why do you say you were not ready for acrilic  and did the gelly beans in oil  when you did great job with the wood?
Title: Re: Painting wood Lesson

Hi Danielle,
So nice to see you popping in.  I was hoping you would see all my recent oils and WC paintings... and offer strong critics to help me improve.   If I could focus on improving one skill in each painting... I would go a long way.

Hard to say, but I think acrylics simply dries to fast for the way I paint.  Even with retardant and spay water bottle!  I paint slowly and have to deal with frequent unplanned interuptions.  I am also a bit confuse with the colors changing a bit when they dry.  I am not able yet to match most dry colors.  Again a problem I would not have if I painted faster.

In this class, Nolan said that any acrylic classes could be painted with oils, and vice versa.  Just that some requires that a step needs to dry well before proceeding to the next step.  I had no problem using acrylics for simple backgrounds like 'First Rose' or the 'Semi-abstract Cityscape', and that is a neat way to get started.

Hope your business is doing well.

Post by: Danielle123 on November 14, 2016, 09:13:32 PM
I tried acrylic only once, like you I am a slow and the paint was drying faster than I could blend properly.

I do like WC and coloured pencil, which is what I concentrate my art on.   I sold my hat ladies and my little kids at the beach this past spring but I have not sold an other painting since.  The bear someone wanted it but he never got back to me.

good luck in your art Annie.

just went to see your art on your site you are doing great.  keep the good work.

I understand that Annie, I am the same way. I go away from a painting and come back later, and it doesn't seem so bad. Lloyd says if I could learn to pirouette without falling over..... I'd love my paintings in no time!  :D :2funny:

Thank Val... you normalized that weird feeling. 

Happened before, I would think "this is the worst ever" and I brace myself.  Then PB members point to areas which need improvement (and I am always so grateful for any critics to help me improve) but then the unexpected when there are also comments on something good that I did not see... and that makes me really happy at the same time.

You guys ROCK!   O0
