Take a look at this great painting by Liz's grand daughter. She is only 9yrs old, but look how well she has mastered her shadings already  :clap:

WoW!  I see the makings of a very good artist. As they say in the classics, 'WATCH THIS SPACE!"

Thanks guys  ;),
I am going to the Honolulu Academy of Arts for summer workshop.
I hope to learn to paint better and become a professional artist when I grow up.
I'm working on drawing my dog, Pixie.  She is a cute Yorkshire terrier. :gl: :clap
Thank you for your comments. :yippee:

Hi All,

I'm reading your comments to Emi who is working on a landscape, mixing acrylic paints, exploring color, etc. She was surprised to find her paint still soft and usable in a MUELLO palette w/air tight lid.  It seems good for only water-based paints, unless I find an easier way to clean it.  For oil paint, an old tupperware with two large compartments works for me.  Anyone with other suggestions for a reusable palette?

I use a tupperware with a damp sponge at the bottom, then a layer of baking paper on top as the mixing surface.

I also spray a mist of water over the top before closing the container so the paint is not exposed to air

Hi Nolan,
Hope everything's okay with your family in Christchurch.  The last time we had a real shaker here was 5 years ago, a 6.0, but little damage if any.
 
You were telling me about your palette for acrylic painting.  What's best for oils? BTW, Emily started art academy yesterday with ceramics in the morning and drawing and painting in the afternoon.  Guess what she already loves?  Yup, it's ceramics!  :) But in a few weeks there will be an art show and I'm sure we'll be sharing some of her work! :painting:

I can believe that Emily is enjoying the ceramics - us arty types like to get our hands dirty  ;D

For an oil palette you can use a lot of things like a tile, piece of glass, bought wooden palette, even an old telephone directory. My personal favourite is a smooth tile as it's the easiest to clean.
