My husband, John plays golf two or three times a month, and spends time working on lowering his handicap. He takes private golf lessons, tries out new equipment, watches tv programs and practices his swing pattern.
Much in the same way, I try and improve my skills with art.
Last year, I gave myself the challenge of learning more about edges. It was an exciting subject to pick. And, I discovered some real treasure about the types of edges that can be used in a painting.
This year, I’m toying with the idea of spending some time with the study of highlights and shadows, and the patterns that they create.
“The Old Pot” was a painting that I did some years ago, but it is a good example to use. I love the way the light swirls and playfully illuminates the quail, adding a lot of motion and interest to this painting.
