Valentine’s Day at the Lodge



Owl Invasion at the Lodge

We had a real hoot at the lodge this week painting owls.  With plenty of character (and plenty of technique) this particular parliament was as delightful to paint as it was to admire when finished.


Big Skies at the Lodge


In keeping with our negative painting practice, we painted big prairie clouds at the lodge this week.  The idea was to use negative painting techniques to get the strong white edges on the clouds, then go back in to make the insides three dimensional.  These ladies are landscape painters so they each finished their painting in their own way.
