The Beginnings of a new Amish Painting

Well, I have the beginnings of a new Amish painting I am very excited about. This one is going to be an Amish girl, possibly in her kitchen, taking a break from baking and looking out the window. This one will be tricky though as I want the focus on the girl’s face, with that daydreaming stare.

I am thinking that she will be surrounded in dark browns, with the white light coming through the window. Ahhhh, like I said, it will be kind of tricky, but I will go forth!

I had also wanted to show you the completed painting of the amish boy with the calf, but I am not really happy with the way it came out. I would look at it over and over, and I just didn’t get the feeling I have had with all the others. So please bear with me, as I may do it over, or I just might share it to see what you think. I will try some things with it in the next day or so.

But I hope you like the beginnings of this painting and I am so excited….I will tread carefully with this one! Thank you and check back. Stay safe!

The beginnings of a new Amish painting

Amish Painting Continued

So…..I am still at this painting and I don’t know why it’s taking me so long. I think it may be that I am wanting this painting to be more realistic, especially with the  background scenery. Also, getting caught up in all the negative news out there and can’t seem to settle down and just concentrate. I am almost completed with this though, and I’ve done more than you see here right now. I am shooting for a couple more days, and I should be done with this one.

I have changed many things with this painting, too….and erased a lot! But I can see now, it will all be for the best.  I promise I will show you as soon as I am completed. Back to the drawing board…and maybe play some peaceful music, that may help! Back soon!

This stage is always the toughest…it always looks like it’s not ever going to look how you intended it to. Just have to keep going.

Newest Amish Pastel Painting Progression

Here is the progression so far on my newest Amish painting. I think she is coming out so sweet and I am so surprised how well the background looks so far. Still taking my time…step by step.  The next one I show you will be the finished piece and hopefully I have a name for it then as well. Come back in a few! Thanks so much for your interest in my work!
