Paint with me?
(Start with something pretty easy)? How about this picture....
Send us a pic or link of your effort and we'll put it up on our site (if you want)!
Here are some pics of me having a go at the St Kilda boat ramp area. I used acrylic paints on canvas paper of course you can use whatever you like (paint along if you like)!
I'm sure you could use any colours you like for this, I used Burnt Umber, Yellow Oxide, Ultramarine Blue, Hookers Green, Titanium White and Burnt Sienna.
Started with a pencil sketch (I sort of bent it a bit to fit my needs - artistic license right)?....
Then the base colours...
Added some dark where the rocks will be......
Then some green where the trees will be and on the buoys...
Now back to work with some darker blues I tidied up the bits I didn't like in the water and tried to give it some sense of movement with some 'ripples'...
I put in the pylons now and some green for the tree reflections in the water on the left.
Last up some touches of white for the clouds and to highlight the buoys and a bit of white / white and blue to try and bring out the ripples a bit more.
Last details, reflection of the pylon and last touches to the clouds, thought I better stop before I overworked it.....
So I hope you had a crack at this with me, water is difficult to paint but it's cool fun right? If you did have a go I would love to see it! We've left some room on the right of the page for your pics! If you had a go but are too shy to show it that's cool too. Get in touch! Make some art!
Your Efforts Here!
What Will You Find Here?
Well, lots of stuff. In the 'free stuff' you will be able to find things that we generally have a hard time to find, or accidentally come across. This page will be for the times you have that 'what can I do now' feeling. We will probably (hopefully) cover a lot of things here. We should be able to find lots of free stuff to do, and report back on how good (or bad) it is.
We will cover inside and outside stuff, making stuff and any other 'stuff' we see fit. There will be lots of photography, art, food and maybe some reviews, hiking, camping, fishing, weather and all-sorts! If you have any ideas on what you would like to see us do send us a message! You can use the contact form or the forums. We are around the place every couple of days so we will reply pretty quick!
Hope to hear from you soon!
