The sun is going down on the studio.... but the paint brushes are still moving. This new painting, "Kayakers on the River" will be at Art on Union. Thank you Lianne for the inspiration! I couldn't get a grip on the direction for color for this one (see post on 4-11 for the "before"). It went through MANY changes to say the least... and then my artist friend Lianne directed me to some color solutions and now I think I have it... for now, anyway :-).
It's all a process... here are current Tiny trees. The first photo with under painting of green and first coat tree and first coat sky. The second photo with second and third layers finished... ready for varnish. My larger paintings are done similarly... with underpainting, then darks/bolds, then working lighter to the end. See all 500 tiny paintings this May 10 and 11 at Art On Union... yes, 500. :-). Trust me, it is VERY good practice.
