Amateur Landscape Artist Blog

Hello all,

After sheepishly posting a few of my amateur (swiss) landscape paintings and a link to my amateur artist blog on the What do you make? Show us your stuff... thread, I feel a greater need to share and have decided to go for greater exposure and post a link to the blog here.

If you are interested in landscape painting/the swiss landscape, are an amateur artist or would like to start painting but don't know where to begin, this blog may be of interest to you. Most importantly, I hope that the blog and the works on it demonstrate that one does not have to be a professional, or particularly gifted or skilled to get immense joy out of creating and sharing art.

Here is the site: www.humbledauber.com

Anyhow, if you choose to stop by there I welcome and thank you! I also welcome any gentle (ie. non troll-y) commentary or suggestions.

Have a great weekend!

Re: Amateur Landscape Artist Blog

Thank you so much!! I am still pretty new to it and trying to develop a "style" or voice of my own. If somebody (other than me) can discern a similar expression within the paintings that is a GOOD sign!

Re: Amateur Landscape Artist Blog

You have some really great stuff!!!! I too dig your style. Although I will say I did also like the tree trunks in the snow picture before you painted over it.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful work! I can't wait to check back to your blog and see your creations.
Happy painting/creating!

Ha! That is exactly what my husband said (he was fond of the painted-over version and thought I was nuts for destroying it). Thank you for the kind words! I usually manage a painting every three to 4 weeks, but also sometimes put hiking, switzerland or amateur artist related stuff on there too. You are welcome on over any time!

Thanks! (I had to look up that Ecosse reference). Keep posted on the blog every so often then. I don't sell paintings but I do occasionally give them away to the first taker...

Hi M_McPoyle

I specially love your paintings 'Gottschalkenberg, New Year’s Day' and 'Lost on Flumserberg'. Very nice ones indeed.

Keep on painting (and posting)!
