PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 10/27

Hi Everyone!

Wow another week gone. So much going on in my life, (and thank the gods most of it good) that when PPF comes along I am scrambling to get something made up to show. I need to take some time for quiet, easy going art. LOL We took a drive to Bandon, OR. yesterday. It is one of our favorite towns here on the Oregon coast. People are so friendly, the art shops are pretty amazing and we just have a nice time. We do it at this time of the year because during summer the tourist make it impossible to enjoy the town. Haaa even my own town.  Then for what ever reason I have been sleeping in. I am normally up by 5AM 4:30 is better for me. I didn't get up until 8AM today. OMG!!!! I haven't done that since....... well I don't think I have ever slept in that late. It makes me feel like 1/2 my day is gone.  I guess I needed the sleep.  So a big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting 
Paint Party Friday. I am anxious to see what all of you have created this week. 

I did get this drawn early in the week.


This is something I have wanted to try for some time.  I did learn that lighter colors are better than the darker for detail. 

I used a canvas that has been repainted on many times. That did lead to some nice texture.

  8. Beautiful artwork. I love all the texture in your canvas piece. I'm an early riser, too. I find that getting up late really messes up my routine and it's my creativity that suffers as a result.

  9. Your portrait is gorgeous! I also love how you have used light in your paintings. The texture on the second one is wonderful. Happy PPF

  10. beautiful portrait Nicole. I have slept in twice already and I bet many others have too. I'm thinking it has to do with the changing of the season and the sun setting earlier and rising later.
    And it probably is also as you said that maybe one just needs the extra rest sometimes. Happy PPF and have another great week ahead!

  13. Such gorgeous colors on your canvases, Nicole. And the drawing is beautiful. I love the pensive look on her face. The trip to Bandon sounds like a fun day. I'm the opposite from you. I sleep late and stay up late. There were times in my life when I had to catch a 6:30 bus for work. Those were days I never saw sunlight because it was also dark when I left work to go home.

  18. 5AM !!? omg, I don't think I would survive .... I'm an evening-person, even a night-person and I hate getting out of bed early. You must be going to sleep pretty early then? Your drawing is very pretty, and I love your paintings. All that texture and the bright colours against the black. Very special!

    1. You are so funny. To answer your question about going to bed early? No I actually stay up late like 11PM. I sleep really well and then "BANG" I wake up ready to go. Weird huh? LOL

  24. Love your projects, Nicole. How clever to have the underpainting peek through for the next painting!

  25. Lovely portrait Nicole! Love the texture in your painting...
    I rise early only when it's needed, I used to when I was in Dubai- 5 am was my time. Now it's 6:30. But I can stay up late...it's calming to paint/draw when the whole world is asleep. That said most of my major work happens during the day when the energy levels are higher! :)
