7-22-2017 Beginner Paint-Along Finished Painting
Today was the first live-streamed paint-along, and this one was targeted to those new to painting with acrylics. This painting was completed in under five hours with a beginning palette of just the three primary colors (red, blue, yellow), white gesso, and a small selection of brushes. Another paint-along stream will be occurring next month. Maybe I'll see you there!
By The Waters Edge

'By the Waters Edge'
24x12 acrylic on stretched canvas

I painted this last night while my daughter and I were each just relaxing and doing our own creative stuff. I find it very peaceful and soothing. If there's interest, I may make a tutorial on how to paint a scene like it.

A View to Relaxation
20x16" acrylics on deep canvas board

I will be repainting this live during an upcoming art stream for anyone who wants to follow along. For more information, see my FB page at

Hello Keith, thank you very much for the favourate. I see you having some tea, do you like tea too?
ThatDarkholderGuy Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013  Professional General Artist
As long as it's either herbal or oolong!
Teacup-Princess Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I adore herbal teas, I don't think I have tried Oolong. I'll have to add that to the bucket list for teas :D.
