View Full Version : What did you paint today? (W.I.P.)
04-17-2013, 01:03 AM
Here's what I did.... Work In progress... Long, Long way to go. Probably should not have used Colorease pencils for the sketch.. They're bleeding a bit too much.
Reference - Elaine Cross's Photo : "Resting" found at PMP.
There is so much character in the photo - I had to paint it. From the steel gate to the peeling paint , tree bark, block wall, iron bench .... etc. It's a real challenge.
17" x 13" / WIP / Watercolor (So Far) / Title withheld. will name upon completion
C & C always welcome.

Thank you very much Doug, Jan, Suzanne, Lynn & Darla. It's a really fun project!
Jan - Here;s the reference (Hope I'm not breaking any of PMP's rules by posting this:eek:)
"Resting" Photo by Elaine Cross (Paint My Photo)
Suzanne - Great start again John.....(Gosh - your 'time out' has sure fired your painting engines up!)Looking forward to seeing this progress.
Suzanne I guess I needed a break.. It's a thrilling time for me now - I've learned so much and and I'm really excited about trying new ideas.
Here's today's progress... All watercolor until step # 4.
Step # 03 :
Step # 04 (Added some gouache to the palette here) :
I've mostly been focusing on the COI - most of the work going into the right side of the paper. I'm doing it this way because I don't want the steel gate to get too much attention yet. All together I think I put another 3 hours into it.
All C & C welcome & appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for posting the ref. Your painting's looking good. The man really is shaping up - Can't wait to see when you add some more definition to his face. Good job!
