oh four - part one . . .

I do have a few oil paintings to post.  Also, I think I will follow Bonnie's lead and stay with water media over the winter.  I'm waiting on her report about the water based oil paints.  In the meantime I want to 'conquer' watercolors (and acrylics) like a mountain climber wants to climb to the top of Mount Everest.  As I look at the watercolors I have done so far - I think that there is something I need to do that I just don't want to do -  READ A BOOK.  I have a book I just don't want to read a book!  I'll look at Chapter 1 tomorrow. 
These paintings represent  4 things that I would like to do with my ballerinas -
1.  paint a bold beautiful colorful watercolor Degas (John Nieto and JanettMarie)
2.  paint a bold acrylic with two colors - even paint a danseuse! (Mark Adlington)
3.  paint a ballerina  against a bold abstract (Sylvie Van Hulle)
4.  paint a large dynamic painting of a ballerina (Georgianne Fastaia)

Toutes ces nuances dansent à la Degas... Bisous

Then you shall, Myra, you shall paint all of them!

Sounds like great plans... I'm anxious to see what you produce.

Myra, I use water mixable oils all the time and love them!
