I sure wish I spoke his language so I could understand him. This is a great video nonetheless.

I just had to share this photo of my wife, MaryAnn. It was taken by her friend Nancee while MaryAnn was out in San Diego visiting her.

Isn't it a great photo? It was taken quite by accident - MaryAnn was leaning back, trying to catch her balance while standing on an outcropping of rocks just as Nancee snapped the photo.

Here's a little 5 x 7 of an Irish castle that I started on my lunch hour today. Decided to try a pen and ink style. I kind of like it so far, but I'll withhold judgement until I get it finished.

Thanks everyone, especially thanks +Mary Ann Boysen for the tip. I will try to add some Opera to the painting and see how it works out.

I've tried doing the underwash of the three colors on some other paintings, but it hasn't yet turned out very well. I think I may be laying it on too dark or something.

I did some sketching at lunch time. The painting isn't very good, but one thing that interested me about it was the color selection. I basically used just two colors - Quin Gold and Cobalt Blue. There is a touch of Burnt Sienna in places, but not much at all.

I think I'm going to try a full-sized landscape just using those two colors - quinacridone gold and cobalt blue (both from W&N).

I actually like 'lines' in my building works & I use a fine 01 waterproof ink pen. My feelings are that it helps 'enhance' the structure, but by being so fine does not dominate it. As for colours, trying very hard to use just 3 (one each of the primaries) is difficult at times but really does help tie it all together. At the end of the day we are all artists & use our own artistic interpretation as we see things. Nice sketch BTW Charles!

One of these days I'll figure out how to paint trees. Until then I'll just keep struggling.

Thank you, +Heidi Gihle Jacobsen ! I did another painting over the weekend, another barn scene. Those are very popular :-)

If you're in Yangon and need some Western style food, you can find a decent selection here. The food isn't that great, mind you, but at least you can get a burger and fries if that's what you need. It's pretty expensive compared to local food, but that's to be expected I guess.
