I'm currently working on a few project samples for paint nights that are coming up this spring and fall. Paint nights are a lot of fun...wine and paint, there's nothing better. My favorite thing is to share my favorite thing with others and, hopefully, to teach a few things in the mix. Preparing for these events is good for me as an artist as it makes me think of the choices I make and why I make them when I paint. I know I often say that I paint intuitively, which is true for the most part, but I am also very aware that I can make these intuitive choices because I have studied and practiced for many years. There are certain elements of design that I that follow, such as line, contrast, value, colour, repitition, balance and composition, which always remain in the back of my mind. Even though I may not be consciously aware of why I make particular decisions, these thoughts are always in mind. My hope is that I can impart some of the knowledge that I have received throughout the years while making these events fun for everyone.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Veronica. All the textbook stuff like hue, value, composition is important but the real fun is in the experimentation and feelings behind the painting, putting it out there and enjoying the process. I love your posts!!!
