I like very much the "Easter daisy" painting, it's very poetic.
It's a very good procedure to start with a black and white underpainting. Keep up!!

Hi Pamela, Your paintings are very nice. I noticed in one of your earlier posts you mentioned you follow Helen Van Wyck, I recently purchased one of her books called Color Recipes. I would recommend it, she gives formulas for the colors she used on different items. I'm not familiar with doing an under painting with acrylics, does she have a book on that too? It's a shame she's passed away, I really liked her style of painting. Happy painting. Barb

Hi, Barbara. I have all of Helen's books. I couldn't have painted copper without them. Or it would have been much more difficult and taken much more time for me to figure it out. Her book, "Welcome to My Studio", illustrates an underpainting step by step, but it would really help to watch her DVD titled Oil Painting Techniques and Procedures. In the DVD, she paints the painting used in her book. You will find it if you follow this link: Yes, it is a shame she is gone. I would have loved to meet her and possibly attend a workshop. I also have all of her CDs, and I have watched them over and over.

Your paintings are very nice as well. Don't you love painting silver? You do it well. Thanks for your kind remarks. It's nice hearing from you.
