Fossicking Friday 21st January 2011


Nothing to "Do" tonight - just "Read" and "Look":

There is such a great quote by artist Betsy Dillard Stroud on the Artist Magazine blog, where she says that "painters never learn by making good paintings." Hope for everyone.

The Creative Block: Best Practices: is a great article about 'getting into the groove' after a break from painting.


I have become a huge fan of Liz Steel (and Borromini). I love her sketchbooks and blog! Here is a great interview with her on the Artists' Journal Workshop.

No Matter What Distracts You From Your Art, You CAN Overcome It.

5 Common Traits of Successful Artists.


Look

Easy Oil Painting Techniques is a great site for painters, it is packed with excellent advice and great demonstrations. I love this step-by-step Oil Painting Demonstration of Persimmons Still Life.
How to oil paint persimmons is the second part of this demo.

Lisa Daria is a cancer survivor who has committed to creating a painting each day - this is  Number 594. Love it!


Another gorgeous demo - this one in coloured pencil:  Paula Pertile - Ginger Caramel Drawing Demo.

Have a Great week end!
