Watercolor and Oil paintings, thoughts, lessons learned and commentary.
Welcome to M.E. BAILEY ART . . . .
Here you will find adventures in painting. . . . Victories, absolute defeats, frustrations, highs, lows, lessons learned, commentary and thoughts from me and other artists.
As an art instructor, I don't wish to hide the fact that I crash and burn often. I will always be learning. So, it all gets shown here . . .good and bad. Every painting we do counts in the learning and experience process. The failures actually are much better teachers than successes. Every piece made is a teacher. That's the fun of it: the challenge to learn.
SEARCH FOR A WORD IN THE BOX TO THE RIGHT: COLOR, VALUE, PERSPECTIVE, IDEAS, MUSE, PLEIN AIR. . .ETC . . . .YOU'LL FIND PLENTY OF PAINTINGS AND IDEAS AS A RESULT. hAVE FUN!

watercolor 18 x 24 inches
So . . . .tired of rocks? Take a look at this . . . .a solid granite wall with mature oaks and ponderosa pines growing out of the cracks. This wall could be one 1000 feet (300 meters) high . . or more. The model is from the neighborhood of where my rocks lie . . . .Yosemite National Park in California. The rocks seen in the previous posts fall from cliff faces like this . . .and sometimes from enormous heights.
The abstract patterns of line and shape in these cliff faces make a painter ponder them for hours on end . . . . . . .and usually go home in frustration when attempting to paint them.
High energy,enthusiastic about everything, positive and devoted to learning and growing in the field of art. Willing to share what little I know about painting. . .so I teach workshops and have a wonderful time doing it.
I am a signature member of and have received high awards from The National Watercolor Society. Recently, my work has been accepted and exhibited by the American Watercolor Society in New York city and in the International Watercolor Competition in Shanghai China.
