Second cp project.  It was a challenge to get the background deep and yet have modulation of color.  Baby steps.

Taking a colored pencil class over the next few weeks.  Liking it a lot, not the least because (a) I am learning patience, and (b) I thought I had my color theory down pat, but I am learning more new things about color mixing than I thought possible.  It's a fun way to gain knowledge that can be applied across all media.

Knife painting on canvas.  Nice not to be under the control of the brush.

Ok. I am just going to jump in here.

I'm Debra Spinks, and I am an artist. I paint in watercolor, oils, and acrylics. I also work in charcoal, graphite, soft pastels, and colored pencil.

I'm not sure in what direction I'll go with this blog, but you'll know as soon as I know.
