Finally, some painting! [Mar. 27th, 2003|06:13 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Oh my, I've been so busy! Today my Grandma and my Aunt Pat came to visit, and we went out and had lots of fun. Now I'm home and I find myself with a little bit of time to paint =)

I'm going to try painting on my wooden panels tonight. I'm excited to paint on wood - a lot of renaissance paintings were done on wooden panels. I've been reading about it and they last a lot longer (like hundreds of years longer, as if I really need to worry about that, lol) than fabric based material (like canvas). They also seem so sturdy! No chance of getting torn or bent in the mail, lol. We'll see how it goes =)

I'll probably be setting up my webcam to point at my drawing board in a few minutes, for those of you who would like to watch me!

Oooh! Have fun painting on those - wooden panels are my base-of-choice, though the regular square ones rather than the woodsy ones with the bark. I buy up loads of these cheap untempered hardboard panels at the art store - they have a sort of folksie, early 19th century feel to them, for some reason. I did a painting of a Revolution-era Frenchman on one of those and it turned out pretty cool. I can't wait to see what you do! :)

I clicked on your webcam and saw what you meant about painting on wood panels. My brain wasn't fully functioning and when I was thinking wood I pictured rough pieces of bark. Scary thought. I thought I would share my studpidity :-)

Hehe! Actually, since it's an actual slice of log (albeit very smoothly sanded flat) there is quite a bit of rough bark around the edges. I like feeling the bark with my hand while I paint!
