VIRTUAL PAINTOUT AND FULLERTON RAILROAD BUILDINGS

VIRTUAL PAINTOUT

The 'VIRTUAL PAINTOUT' (http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/) was over in Belfast Ireland. There was so much green and the country is beautiful, lush and rural. I enjoyed my visit and appreciate Bill Guffey's blog site and the work he does to pull this off every month. If you haven't tried it you are missing a fun challenge.

Ivy and I walked to the Fullerton Train Station to sketch today, because I had stopped near this area a few days ago and wanted to come back to do more sketching. These buildings are so textural and I am continuing to use the art set with crayon, pencil, oil pastel and felt pens. It’s a bit of a challenge using unfamiliar tools.

Kudos for you on using the new art toys! You would never know it was a challenge to look at your sketch!

I really love your sketch of Ireland - beautiful!!

That is a lovely painting of the countryside near Belfast -- and definitely a Pat Reese! I love your style with trees.

Hi Pat! I have SO been enjoying your trees! All of 'em.

I'm so glad to hear that you did an image for the Irish virtual paintout I'd love to do one ... but time is running out.

I really like the train related images -- I have a soft spot for them having grown up following my Dad chasing trains....

You're getting very nice effects mixing your art toys. Keep having fun with them.

A fairy ring of trees! Great art from the Virtual Paintout.
Oh, and I fed the fish... :)

I'm not sure how I missed this beautiful painting. It's a stunner. Now I'm going to have to follow up on the virtual paintout - I'd swear you had painted this on location.
