Ready to Paint, Step 1
Last night I sketched in the subject on an 1/8th sheet Fabriano watercolor paper. There is a project at Painting Friends (due today) for its members to paint the same subject (reference photo by Ron Reagan), send via e-mail the photo of their painting with their name on it to one designated member. The designated member will then replace the name on the photo with a number, posting the number on a master list next to the member's name. Once the photos are all numbered they will be posted at one time. Then the members will have a ball trying to pick the artist of each painting. The reason for this project is because everyone wonders if they have a distinctive style, so by eliminating the names we will see how distinctive our individual methods/style of painting are, by the number who guess the correct artist. Should be fun!
