Let's go painting!
Updated: Mar 4
Do you want to paint a Hawaiian landscape but don’t know how? Do you like to doodle or draw? Let’s draw or paint together. We are in a pandemic and so masks and social distancing are expected.
I like to paint with pastels which look like sticks of intensely colored chalk. Pastels are fun because they don’t change color as you use them. The color you put on your paper stays that way. Pastels can be messy but they are wonderful to paint with. In the picture below I am painting a pastel at Honl's Beach on Aliʻi Drive in Kailua-Kona
I also like to paint with oil paints. Oils are fun because you get to mix your own colors. Just for the fun of it, you can paint using the three primary colors (red, yellow and blue) plus white. Of course you can use more than just the primary colors. In the photo below I was painting with oils at Honuʻapo at Whittington Beach Park in the Kaʻū district.
I like to paint in Kaʻū (weather permitting) on Tuesdays. If you would like to join me you can contact me through the Kaʻu Art Gallery and Gift Shop. Whatever your skill level is
in drawing or painting we can learn from each other. Let’s go painting!
