Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.


I'm making the canvas for my new Scotland painting today.  Here is a quick sketch of the painting.  It will be an alley with a bunch of brightly colored buildings.


So it looks like the French flag right now, but fear not, it will turn into something soon. :)


Some progress... I started adding the Salisbury Craig cliffs in the background, the sky color, and the buildings!  I like this one a lot so far! 


It's already starting to come together and it makes me happy! I worked on the buildings in the middle mainly today and I also made the blue building darker blue. 

This was my last Saturday painting in this art studio.  It has been good to me for the past year and a half, but it's time to move on... goodbye.


I had lots of time to paint today!  Yay!  I added the building on the left and fixed the path in the foreground.  I also added some to the windows and blue roof.

A special thanks to Bonnie for the new tunes!

More windows today...

Inspirational Song of the Day: "She Moves in her Own Way", the Kooks.


I added the drain pipe and the side of the red building.

Inspirational Song of the Day: "Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop", Landon Pigg.


I made the water spout look dimensional (No itsy bitsy spider though unfortunately...) and I added slight contrast to the colors in the wall.   I also added a friendly euro light fixture at the top.

Inspirational Song of the Day: "Signature of Divine", Needtobreathe.

Also worth noting: I was listening to this Landon Pigg song called "Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop" and I love this lyric: 

"I've seen the paths that your eyes wander down... I want to come too."

 Anyway, I think that may be the title of this painting...


***My 1st time to work in my new art studio! YAY!

I worked on the cliff in the background which is actually called Salisbury Craig.

Inspirational Song of the Day: The Proclaimers, "I would walk 500 miles."


I worked on the buildings today.

Inspirational Artist of the Day: the Fray


I worked more on the buildings today.

I worked more on the buildings today.


I worked more on the buildings in the foreground today.  I am trying to get the side red wall to not look like it is bubbling forward and I am working on the blue wall's window placement.  I'm getting close to finishing this one... maybe tomorrow?  Fingers crossed.


I'm almost finished.  I just want to put the finishing touches on the blue wall's windows and it has to dry more before I can do that... so it should be done this week hopefully...
