11" x 14"
Acrylic Painting on Canvas
Margie Whittington

A painting I did in Friday All Day Acrylic Class.
The subject is from the photo in the post below. I took the
photo at the Jones Farm in Santo, Texas
on a crisp fall day a couple of Saturdays ago.
A beautiful day in the country and we caught a lot of bass and
brim in this tank and another one on the property.

My sister in law, Marsha and I fished on the bank while

our husbands Mike and Phil were in a boat in the middle of the pond.

Come back soon!

Margie Whittington

This is a painting from a photograph I took on the river in
Boerne, Texas. After drawing the image, I put a blue wash on
the background and layed saran wrap on the wet wash.
After letting the saran set a minute, I lifted it and the
texture left looks like the motion in the water.
See the photo below.

After painting the water, I began painting the dark beak
and the dark on the feathers. Then I painted the
midtones and light feathers leaving the white paper for
the white high lights on the goose.

The next step, I began painting the
reflection of the goose in the water. I still have
some to do on this step.

Be sure to come back and see the finished painting.
This painting was also a class project at the Upstairs Gallery
in Arlington, Texas. I will be posting some of my students
paintings soon.
