Title: Painting Rain
Post by: musika on August 21, 2012, 03:00:06 PM
Thank you Clarkies. That was an amazing lesson.
Could we follow up sometime with a rainy night street scene as seen through a car windscreen?

I painted along but I didn't get an image or sound until about 20 minutes in so I didn't mask anything. I use both the interactive and the open golden acrylics and I have found I can mix them with ordinary Windsor and Newton as well. (Just be careful if you want to glaze!
I have forgotten the last bit so I'll wait until I see the rest of Nolan's rain on the replay to finish. Fun trying to keep up today!

Karen I didn't dream you would be painting along knowing you would have a late start. 

You perform magic every time!  My eyes are dazzled!!!

You didn't even use any masking!  You sure didn't need it!   :heeha:

You are such an amazing artist.  You are an inspiration to us all.

I love this-- lovely sky reflected on the pavement. Wonderful lighting!  Love the birds, the bit of green on the wall.

I'm proud of you and very very  :envy:

Karen! Did you take a sneaky screen shot of Nolans painting?! lol!
 I can't believe you followed along and produced such a wonderful painting!  You should be very proud of yourself. Well done  :clap: :clap:
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: Karen on August 22, 2012, 12:47:25 AM
Thank you for your comments, Sasha, Valweb and Mary. Thanks for the idea too, Tony - it's never occurred to me, but I guess a screen shot  would be useful to catch the missing bits - if I weren't so busy just scrambling to get paint onto the canvas.
Thanks for the nice comment too Nolan - my computer battery died just as you were starting the rain so I look forward to seeing that part properly.
I agree with Ray - A night street scene would be an interesting one to do.

WOW, Karen!!!!!  :clap: I just love your painting :smitten:
Unfortunatelly I couldn't watch the whole class, so never saw the final painting from  :smart: Nolan.  :'(
But yours looks AWESOME!!!!! I love the bright colours, how you've painted the rain and clouds, the coat and jeans look so real, the reflections on the wet street,...great!!!
And your posters and graffiti makes it even more realistic. You did really an amazing job, and your painting looks photorealistic to me,

                           :cheering: :cheering: WELL DONE,KAREN!!!!!!:cheering: :cheering:

Karen and Gail, I must have fell asleep as Nolan was painting the first wall so I was interested to see how this turned out and your painting look great.  Looking forward to the replay to have a go myself :)  (sorry Nolan ... loOOOng, tiring day in work  ;D )

Looks great Gail, I like how you and Karen have kept the painting a little loose, it adds to the mood in the painting  :clap:
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: GailBrown on August 23, 2012, 05:11:33 PM
When it comes to painting a 16 x 20 canvas in oils during a paint along, there is no other option than to be a little loose.  Possibly a glass of wine might help too, but I haven't tried that yet...lunch is a little early for me.  Thanks to all for the kind comments.  the painting is a little different but I kind of like it...plan to put it up in the lobby hallway during our rainy season starting later in the fall.  it may put a smile on some otherwise dreary days.
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: NHC50 on August 24, 2012, 10:10:37 AM
I looked up why they call the game tic tac toe this, Below is the explaination I found. Now we can all rest tonight knowing that the answer has been found.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

The game itself is thought to date to the Roman Empire. The 3 by 3 grid of a game called Terni Lapilli has been found scratched into surfaces. But because no markings have ever been discovered within the grid, evidence suggests the game might have been played with pieces placed on top.
 
The name tic tac toe comes from a game by the same name, no longer played, in which players with their eyes closed tossed a pencil down onto a slate marked with numbers, and earned the score the number indicated--something like blind darts. The game dates to the mid- to late 1800s. "Ticktack," according to the Random House Dictionary of English language, is a repetitive sound made by repetitive tapping, knocking or clicking. Thus, "tic tac toe" is an imitation of the sound the pencil makes when hitting the slate.

Post by: Rkymtnmary on August 28, 2012, 06:48:38 AM
Wow, Anita...that looks WONDERFUL!  It was nice to hear it's a fun painting...I had the same take on it...until...lol...the third brand of clear cover, like the others, would not stay on the canvas and I was struggling again trying to make it happen with various interventions like double stick tape and a few other notions I took into my head which failed...so my husband, who's watching in amusement says "we" have to get you a REAL exacto knife which in my mind means right now.  Off we go to Staples and get one plus another kind of transparency roll of whatever...I come home, apply it, doesn't stick BUT wow, I was in awe of the exacto knife and how it at least was giving me such nice, clean cuts and voila!  Now, there are REAL windows in my building.. one literally can see right THROUGH them and everything behind them!  So, looks like it will be a while before I get this one done!   :2funny:  Awesome painting!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Post by: Rkymtnmary on August 28, 2012, 09:51:51 AM
 :2funny: Anita!  I had to laugh too!  What else can be done when you've cut two incredibly precise holes in your canvas...I thought maybe it might work well as a puppet show?  Kinda small but maybe finger puppets?  I am undaunted though...already on Take Two!  The first ones looked better though...LOL...anyway, kudos again.  I LOVE yours!
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: Val on August 28, 2012, 04:40:07 PM
Mary, I think I may have the answer for you....mixed media! That's right...mixed media.   O0
Take a couple of little pictures of something....stick them on the back so they're visible through the 'windows', maybe some little curtains...voila...mixed media!   ;D
Perhaps Lillian could help out with this....any suggestions Lillian?   ::)

Val -  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

The other consideration is I could make it a kind of seasonal painting...I could put Christmas trees in the window, Easter eggs, hearts, pumpkins...you name it...the sky's the limit!
Title: Re: Painting Rain

Mary,  try the clear contact paper that is with the shelf lining at Walmart. That stuff really sticks!!
Title: Re: Painting Rain

I knew you'd be "on board," Val...there's a whole host of things I can do now...I can't believe Nolan hasn't taught this technique yet!
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: Lillian on August 28, 2012, 06:26:37 PM
Mixed media, huh?    :2funny:  The sky's the limit! 

Mary, I get my contact paper at the dollar store.  It's called book covering.  Nolan recommended it.

It's stickeeeeeeeeeeeee!  No problem at all!

My other recommendation --   not so heavy-handed with that exacto knife!   :D

Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: Rkymtnmary on August 28, 2012, 08:17:56 PM
This is crazy, isn't it, Lillian?  I've gotten exactly that...I'm wondering though...might it have anything to do with using a gallery canvas vs. the flat kind?  Could THAT be the issue?  Not only does it not stick, it curls up on the edges of whatever it is I'm masking.  I just ripped off the lady with the umbrella...it came out so badly that I have no choice but to paint it freehand now and that is NEVER a good thing!
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: Val on August 29, 2012, 05:16:33 AM
OK, all kidding aside....   :2funny:  ....no really. Put a hold on the jocularity for a minute.   ;D  Well, at least try then.

There was a bit about how to repair cut, ripped, torn canvas on here somewhere. I just can't seem to remember where (no surprise there)   :crazy2:  It has been about 2 years since I saw it. I'm sure one of the Clark boys would know where to find it. OK, all done. Back to normal.   :yippee:

Title: Re: Painting Rain

Rita, Val, Lillian...

I know it's possible...I saw that video a bit back myself and looked for it but with no success...I decided to save it as a practice canvas as well as a template for this year's jack-o-lantern.  Thank you for all your helpful suggestions... :2funny:  I did move ahead with a second canvas and am almost at painting the lady on her way to a weight watchers' meeting...since I'm not about to attempt carving her up with my new weapon, she's just going to have to lose a few pounds!
Title: Re: Painting Rain
Post by: anita on August 29, 2012, 09:43:38 AM
lol ... you're making the poor thing walk through a dodgy part of town in the torrential rain to attend a weight watchers meeting ... that's just cruel  :2funny:

I think it was in the Q and A video that Nolan showed us how to use a knife, you need to make sure that the canvas is on something solid (I think he used a few books) before you start to cut out the masking.

Ok, well, here it is and I could write an entire novel on this one.  It was one disaster after another...this was the one that started all the exacto knife issues...within each step there is a horror show...Nolan - you will have to invest an entire year just digesting all the mistakes here so I say leave as is and we'll just move right along to the next one...LOL!  I changed the grafitti (my son's band logo and my area code...LOL...BAD IDEA!) which was another step in the wrong direction and THEN, had painted in the reflections of the numbers and THEN went back another day to put them in with an entirely different color!  You'll see the attempt to fix that one for which there was none!  And the lady?  Well, she just kept putting on more and more weight which all had to do with the first cover I had cut out and slashed through the first canvas...whatever made me think I could put THAT one in place of starting over I'll never know but lesson learned!  I am posting for humor alone because rain is not my friend...I might have been better off going OUT in the rain to paint this one!  But now I'm caught up with oils IF you want to say that!  Only 5 watercolors to go!   :2funny:

I love the light and bright colours you've used and as Val said, it was a great idea to personalize the grafitti O0 . I really like the reflections on the wet street, and the nice rings of the droplets :) .
Your lady does only have that much weight, because she is dressed on a winterstorm with very low temperatures, and heavy snowfall :nosey: . She just wants to stay warm, once at home she can put of her thick coat, all her sweaters, her Long Johns and what else she had put on. Then you'll see the nice, very slim lady she really is :2funny:

Mary, I love your sence of humor, it brightens up the day, when it's not all happy and sunny. I do feel the same as you, and so many others here I believe: The best part the last 2 months since I've joined PB, is having you and this little loving family in my life.  :yippee: :smitten:

Post by: Rkymtnmary on September 02, 2012, 05:21:16 AM


Rita!  Thank you!  I think what my not so little lady needs to do after getting home and taking off all those layers of clothing is to get into a warm bed and pull the covers up over her head and be thankful she got out of that storm with only TWO lightning bolts hitting her!  Unfortunately, those bright colors were not intentions but necessity (unless I wanted to start a 3RD version in the last inning...lol) because in the midst of all of whatever else was going on, I didn't have "bright green" so I ran out and grabbed a tube of the only brand that the store had...I won't be getting that brand again!  It game out of the tube as if it already WERE a glaze and even if I had made it as transparent as Nolan suggested,  the cadmium yellow was covering the apparently indelible watercolor pencil I'd used to draw the umbrella which was totally off in the first place because of the transparency substitution I never should have done.  If I'd not darkened them, then the umbrella was going to have both internal AND external metal ribbing SO at least she won't get lost in a crowd for sure!  Somehow, I think the painting screams that the artist missed the whole point of the lesson BUT she certainly had a great deal of fun doing it.  Thanks so much, Rita...you made ME laugh!  :2funny:

It really is mystifying, isn't it, C.?  No matter how hard I try, I end up looking like an advertisement for a stain remover commercial.  And now, in addition to paint EVERYWHERE in my studio, including the carpet, it's ALL over my house...I even have titanium white paw prints on my bedroom carpet from the day I put my pallet down on the floor.  And worse, I KEPT them there...gave me license to not even care anymore.  I've gotten paint in my frig, ON the screen of my porch door (try cleaning THAT off), my front door and my pug is glowing in cadmium yellow today!  But that way, I won't lose him at the picnic my family rudely planned for today making me have to miss Dennis' live class today!  >:(

had a good giggle at your comments Mary  ;D

Your painting isn't half as bad as you make it to be. Nothing wrong with the lady, clouds, wall, graffiti, road, etc.  :clap:
What you can do is add more rain drops in the sky - at the moment they are too uniform and equally spaced, so add more in to make them more random. Then just soften the area code reflection on the sidewalk. Not many changes and it will look awesome O0

Nolan -  :2funny:.  Glad you enjoyed my adventure in the rain!  You deserve a medal just for being able to examine it!  I'll make those changes and try to redeem myself... :thankyou: SO much as always!

great job Maryna  :clap: :clap:

Reflect the shoes on the pavement as well, somehow the lady doesn't seem grounded, so the reflection will ground her.
Then you can add some more of the water hitting the ground effect in the foreground O0

Super work Maryna   :clap:  I see what Nolan was saying about the shoes. You have the reflection of the '73' on the sidewalk, but not for the shoes. 
A few splashes from the raindrops on the road will really top it off.   O0
Looking forward to this one.   :yippee:
