“Always listen to your HEART. The wisdom of your heart is the connection to your authentic power – the true home of your spirit” 

― Angie karan

 

Listening to you heart is always the answer. Your head can get you in so much trouble… and it lies! It tells you all sorts of mistruths and can send you in a tailspin for no reason. As an artist, it took me a long time to learn this. As soon as I started listening to my heart and not my head, my art became authentic and I the more I listened to my heart, the easier it became to quiet the voices in my head.

“Nesting” is the painting I did for my first lesson. It had a great response and I enjoyed seeing  everyone’s version on my painting.
Some things that people have said about my PYHaS2019 lesson:

“This is a fabulous lesson. I am trying to get the courage up to try it. So many beautiful paintings are being created and watching Maria Pace-Wynters paint and draw is delightful! Today I will at least get out some inks and see what colors I have. Finish watching the lesson And look at all your beautiful work again !”

“Almost passed up on this lesson because I was a little intimidated with the acrylic ink. But I LOVED it! What an awesome lesson Maria Pace-Wynters! Thank you so much!”

“Back from moving and jumping in with Maria Pace-Wynters “nesting” lesson. First time on birch panel and using inks. I had inks, just hadn’t used them, so thanks much for the lesson; I really enjoyed working on this and learned a lot.”

My attempt at Maria Pace-Wynters. I love Maria’s work, I am a true fan. Thank you very much for sharing your art! ❤️❤️❤️

 

My second lesson is a floral, ‘Red Poppies’, and is coming up soon.  I cannot wait to see how you guys like it and what you do with the lesson.

LOVEBIRDS AND FLOWERS / DECO ART DEMO

I used this painting to do a short demo of the acrylic paint that Deco Art sent me. I don’t use acrylic paints in tubes very often so this was a little out of my comfort zone. I really do love my acrylic inks but sometime I wonder if they are a bit of a crutch. So maybe this was a nice little push for me to experiment. I did end up reverting back to my inks but I AM a mixed media artist so playing with a variety of mediums within one piece is not unusual. In fact, I ended up adding some encaustics to the final piece (not shown in video) because I felt the painting just need something more. All in all though, I am happy with the results.

So Deco Art sent me my primary colours, Red, blue and yellow, and a tube of black and white. They also sent my an extender, a matt medium and some varnish.

I have to say, I thought the coverage was pretty good. It is really hard to get a yellow to have much coverage at all but this one was not bad, and I loved the actual hue. This goes for the red they sent me too, that was a beautiful colour. Absolutely gorgous red orange.

I also like the way they dried, nice and matt, not shiny.

The acrylic medium was great, as good as liquidtex or Golden, which is what i usually use.

The extender …. nope… I just don’t like extenders I think. I am too impatient. I want stuff to dry faster, not slower. It isn’t anything against this brand, I just don’t think extenders are for me.

The only thing I would say that I didn’t like was the tubes of paint are difficult to open and the paint kind of squirted open when you did finally manage to open them. My daughter, Scarlett, had the same problem when she tried them. I often squeeze my paint into jars because I really hate tubes so this remedy this but we did end up wasting paint.

NOOOOO! I HATE WASTING PAINT! HA HA!

This was a nice little push for me to experiment with traditional acrylic paint but I did end up reverting back to my inks half way through. I AM a mixed media artist so playing with a variety of mediums within one piece is not unusual for me, in fact, I ended up adding some encaustics to the final piece (not shown in video) because I felt the painting just need something more. All in all I am happy with how this piece turned out.

AND that is my little review.

Thank you Deco Art!

 

 

Don’t miss this!

Early Bird Prices are still available  for both online classes I am participating in next year.

As you know,  LET’S FACE IT is a course created and hosted by Kara Bullock. It is for anyone that wants to practice creating portraits and figurative art, but is especially designed for those of you that have felt scared or intimidated to do so at some point in your life. Together, we want to share with you our strategies, tips, and techniques that we use in order to create our portrait and figurative artwork. You will leave this course feeling confident enough in your skills to never feel intimidated again. In 2020, we will be studying style development and the course will equally focus on portraits AND figures! I personally  will be teaching a figurative piece which is something I don’t do as frequently as portraits so it will be a learning experience for me too! I will be doing a main lesson and a min lesson. It’s going to be awesome!
