    2018 Pen Paintings (Gallery)

    Well, if Chad can do this then why can't we? Because he is good and I am just barely getting by?

    I know I won't be posting everyday paintings since I just don't have the time for it. I encourage you to post your paintings in your own gallery. It will keep you motivated to paint "just one more painting", hopefully better than the last one.

    Here is one I painted today inspired by Susan Jenkins of the Facebook page: Monet Cafe. This one is painted with pastels and a loaded pallet knife.

    My congratulations. Definitely a huge success. The palette is exquisite and the way you integrated the colors is really expert. There's a lot happening but nothing is drawing an over-amount of attention to itself. It still reads as a landscape first and a painting second -- each of which is very satisfying in its own right.

    I also like your mark making for this amount of information you're putting down. The size and variety of strokes is very pleasing and the relationships are very good between the peppered in dots and the trees and the clouds for example. I also like the linear bits in the foreground compared with the more tonal areas.

    So what do you think about it? Doing back flips? I would be.
