OK, to me that is admirable, because for me to paint a painting a day is really not going to happen. I actually have set a personal goal to paint a painting a week so that I can participate in Paint Party Friday this year. But.. a painting a day? Yeah... no.
Karin Jurick paints many subjects and I hope that you go to her website and have a browse around. I love them all but I do really love her beach scenes, animals and museum goers. She has a couple of You Tube videos that I hope you have time to browse.
The first one is her beach paintings. See them here ::
Life Should be a Beach by Karin Jurick
The second one is her talking about the palette she uses. I have been exploring the palette of the sea. You can see what I put together here. Its nothing like the palette Karin uses. It is always interesting to see what other artists have on their palettes. See her video here::
My Painting Palette by Karin Jurick
I love how she starts out by saying "I sure love a lot of color".
Then, if you are really loving all this... watch her paint one of her paintings here::
Painting a Scene of a New York City Street by Karin Jurick
What jumps out when watching her paint is that she thinks in shapes of color. That is pretty obvious as you see the painting develope. She is not thinking about the subject she is painting... only the shapes and how they combine and work together in color and value.
I have a lot to learn from someone like Karin Jurick. That is why I shared her work today. Its always good to keep the artists you admire nearby.
