Cerro "Pedernal"

My bad misspelling. I was confusing it with something else I recently read.
I think it means " flint hill"

At any rate ,O'Keefe loved the view and thought that if she painted it enough times "...God would just give it to me"

For all of the time O'Keefe spent up there, she didn't produce much that reflected to true beauty of the area

Fortunately for me, and, unfortunately for you in this case, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

EDIT: excellent stuff neebee. You have your own style and touch. Keep showing!!

The contrast between the bird and the surroundings gives the bird a sense of being lighter than air just at the moment its taking off. Good job.

hey there say, ward trotter...


thank you, i was afraid he'd look like was 'standing on the water' or, if the swamp water did not 'portray' proper, the 'mowed grass' :O

i have another 'in flight' one that want to do, but for me, not my mom this time, :))


i was nearly going to put a tad more detail in this birds feathers to make it look more real (the tail) but then i realized that when the take off, we DO NOT see that, :))


well, at any-rate, it is ready for my dear mommy... :)


note:
i GOT the idea from a photo that i knew my mom would love, so the idea
is not all mine... if i had not seen the photo, i WOULD have done the
bird over a manmade-type-LAKE that my mom and i loved to see... a lake in calif...

The detail of the reflection of the bird in the water is very cool and well done.

^^^ nice batrock, and quite thrifty of you. but i have to say that my favorite thing about pastels was how wonderful - and luxurious - the sanded paper was to touch. The whole process - so tactile. So expensive though!

hey there say... all...

got another of the old black & white, from the kids's great aunt...

guessed at the colors, but i know she loved blue...

this is for firstborn son, for a birthday gift, though, perhaps he may not appreciate it now--hope he will later... she loved them very very much...

they USED very red lipstick, back then... :)
and had, or had access at the photographer's to this
lovely jewelry from mexico...

i always loved their
earrings, when we used to shop there... but i opted of course,
to buy the cheeper 'plata' with the enamel flowers... not as elegant, but, very lovely, as well, in different ways...

That's very nice, neebee. Last Friday, my gf signed us up for a drawing class at the Norton Simon. She's the artist, I'm just along for the ride, you understand. The class was on drawing heads. I have new respect for those who draw portraits. The proper proportions and perspective of the human face is not easy to achieve.

Saw this artist, Thierry de Cordier at the Venice Biennale over the summer... some of the best painting I've ever seen though these images don't do it justice. Really powerful work.

Those are gorgeous Paul! I can't imagine what a scene like the Venice art event must be like. I've gone to the SF national/intl dealers event at Fort Mason a couple of times and even that was kind of overwhelming.

hey there say, FortMental...

oh my, that is so funny--they are so SIMILAR, :) what a things to see! say, i was later able to spot that pita's
eye, (her right) our left-side of view, was somehow off a tad... or the line was a tad 'not up to par'...

well, now i will not worry... as, the famous photo, you showed now, has eyes that are off a tad, too... :)

i wonder if the photographer that had pita, SIT, had seen that artwork, first and hope to have a photo, in his own way, to match, :)


gary, as to this:
The proper proportions and perspective of the human face is not easy to achieve.

oh my, so very true... and every time the head moves, new angle are there to conquer, right when you THINK you understand something, :O
and then, there are a few varieties of nose, mouths, etc, those many eyes are similar, there is chins and jaws, and oh my! ...

i mean, wow, if you do a cat, dog or elephant, at least certain breeds, etc, have basic formats nearly the same... (expressions make the special pets, here, in this case)...

then, after thinking you've learned the face...
THEN, there is learning to get A PORTRAIT likeness of someone, and
man oh man... :O it nearly makes you feel like you are slipping back down the trail and all the dirt is sliding down with you, :O


then--once you get the face drawn and say, "wow, i think i got it" well, you add the paint and say, "OOPS" i just lost the whole likeness, :O


whewww...

at least, trees, etc, you can allow for 'winds of change' :))




i was painting my brother howard, a ways back and by some wrong move of the brush, i THEN had MATT! there before me, and not howard, :O

sometimes i have it almost right, and it needs a small change and the brush HITS wrong, and then it far worse than before and i nearly have to start over, :((


HAVE FUN!! you will still love the adventure, gary!



*thank you to phylp...


and keep sharing... i love art...


i have sound some other painters, again, with neat paintings, that i will try to share, later... just 'finds' on the net, as to folks we've really not really heard about... but neat stuff...

woo
