I got one follower who requested process shots on the blog. So for now that's how it's
going to go until my website allows me to create an items page.
My palette colors - I didn't want to do a lot of intense mixing so I put out what I thought I would need.
I added more burnt umber, pthalo green, and turquoise but other than that I never added more color to my palette for this 36" X 36" painting. I squeeze out my paints in the same order now. Makes life a whole lot easier. WN LEMON YELLOW, WN YELLOW, GAMB. INDIAN YELLOW, SHIVA RED MED, WN RED, WN ALIZARIN CRIMSON, WN ULTRA BLUE, WN PTHALO BLUE,
GAMB. PERM. GREEN- PTHALO GR- SAP GR- BRILLIANT GR- OLIVE GR, GAMB. RADIANT BLUE-RADIANT TURQ, WN COBALT BL, HOLBEIN HORIZON BL, GAMB. BURNT UMBER-ASPHALTUM, WN BURNT SIENNA, SHIVA TITAN WHITE
1st 30 min of painting. I start on the right side because I'm left handed.
Makes life easier for sure - not so many oh sh----t!
Today is the second anniversary for my blog, for painting daily or not and for taking a chance. Two years ago I didn't even know what a blog was - I had no idea what the paint daily movement was about - I was at a crossroads.
I scoured the net for info. and started painting.
My first assignment to myself was 100 paintings in 100 days and the rest is history.
I have no particular genre or agenda - I paint whatever is in my heart that day.
It defies logic really but it's been fun for the most part - as well as extremely trying.
Thanks to Wayne Thiebaud, Monet, Degas, Goya, DPW, Carol Marine, Karin Jurick, Shelby Keefe, Timothy Horn et al.
Thanks for taking a look.
