You have some lovely portraits going on there Tracey. A pleasure to see what you have been doing this week.HAppy PPF.
Lesley, Thanks for the visit, Happy PPF to you too.
The palette is looking fascinating Tracey... love seeing it come together like that after seeing the books... and the latest portrait is looking amazing...xx
Thanks Tracey! I feel so organised now, after spending a lot of time studying, the latest portrait has come up quickly, though I'm still in the midst of learning, it's great to finally get into some actual painting.
Love your portraits! It's amazing how you came make the face come alive with a few simple strokes. :)
Natasha, thanks for the lovely comment.
I love the girl on sage green!!! Beautiful work!
Andrea, Thank you.
Wonderful post and painting coming along well ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^
You are so amazingly organized! Great work. Happy PPF
Marji, Happy PPF to you too. Thanks for stopping by.
I like your portraits are always original, but what has astounded me is your materials order, my workplace is a mess what envy! Saludos
La Abela, I'm not always this tidy, I did have to do a bit of a clean up before taking these photos :) I'm naturally a clutter bug so I have to keep on top of that.
Beautiful photography and painting, Tracey. I've been enjoying following your paint study work on Facebook. Your portrait work is so good.
Debbie, thank you for following me on Facebook, I update more regularly there. Also thanks for the great comment about my work. Have a wonderful weekend, and happy creating.
Gloria J Zucaro · Owner/Designer/Artist at Self employedThank you for sharing your very beautiful studio and palette. It inspires me to start working on mine right now, as it is a pit! It is hard to proceed with a project when you have your materials in 6 or 7 different places on three floors!
Gloria, Tell me about it! All my brushes were in a big tin, and some where in a jar, others in another jar, some where in the turps (bad I know), making it hard to find and use them. If you can't find it straight way you waste time locating it and if you can't find it quickly, you maize as well not have (own) it. I'm a clutter bug by nature, so it's not that easy for me to keep a tidy studio. Sometimes I'm more organized than other times, I'm trying really hard to keep things I use all together. Good luck with your organizing.
Another wonderful lesson for us, Tracey! Your paintings are so beautiful.
Oops... I think I may have posted my comment to the wrong spot... just in case, here it is again: I love that feeling of voyeurism that comes with peeking into others work spaces! :-) your portrait is lovely-- you've captured a strong sense of personality on canvas...
Molly, it is fun to peek into others spaces and seeing what others get up to, I enjoy it too. Thanks for the comment about the capturing a strong sense of personality.
Wonderful photos! Love the portrait along with the tour of your studio!!♥♥♥Happy PPF!!MaryMixed-Media Map Art
this portrait is wonderful with great characterso fun to see your studiois that glass that you use as a palette? seems like a wonderful idea.
Tammy, yes it's a glass palette. It is easier to clean, you can just scrap off the paint once dried. This is the type of palette, John Howard Sanden uses, I have been studying his painting methods.
thank you for letting me know. Makes good sense to me.
Wow! You are so organized!! Love getting that little glimpse into your studio! Your portrait is looking wonderful!Happy PPF!
So much fun. Thanks for sharing. Happy PPF!rinda
Oh, these pictures make me happy. You have such a beautiful work space. I just can't paint in a mess, and have to tidy up before I can even think of starting. Same goes for my house, I can't paint if there are dishes in the sink and the bed isn't made.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments.
Wonderful studio, so nice of you to take us on tour! Happy PPF!
wonderful creative week, I'd say!
Great idea to show all those pictures. I really love how the face is coming along, you are so talented. So nice to see the sun out at last!Von :)
Fascinating tour, dreamy palettes and lovely faces!!!
Your materials alone inspire me! Lovely portraits. Your banner is amazing!
