And for our next project ...

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
It’s week three of “Snow Trees”.  Last week's brown paint is still a bit tacky, so I've had to turn the painting upside down to work on it.  I’ve mixed a very pale blue for the snow (zinc white and phthalo blue), and have gradually added snow to all the branches, then painted in some thin twigs. I’ve painted the foreground in the same pale blue, and will be adding pure white where the sun catches the snow, tiny fleckss of grey, blue and black and then perhaps a small animal in the foreground. I need to blend the sky and snow between the trees.

As I was busy with this, the rest of the art group, were discussing our next “group project”. These group projects help give us ideas for our art. We all paint the same subject or use the same medium – you can see some examples of our projects on the group’s website This time, we decided on pen and ink, so I’ll need a proper pen – a fountain one or something like a Rotring. I find the ink runs out too quickly with “dippy” pens.

Karen proudly showed off her painting of a camper van against a sunset.  It was a "wide angle" view.  She is now working on a large leopard painting that she began some time ago. Gill was beginning a watercolour of some autumnal trees from a photo she took at Chatsworth House, a well known local landmark.
This week, I am featuring the blog of Kymberly Young, “Travel Babbles”. Kymberly travels with her partner, TJ, who is a professional ice hockey player, and their pet dog. She began her blog to help keep in touch with friends and family (who live in the US) while she is travelling. She also feels it could be helpful to US citizens wanting to live in Germany, as she herself had difficulty finding information about it when planning to move there. She has some beautiful photos of Hannover, and I particularly like the Grotto. Kymberly keeps busy doing courses, planning her wedding (which is to take place in 2012) and blogging. I think her blog would be of particular interest to anyone who likes ice hockey or Germany, and perhaps bulldogs.
