Re: mountain side pines

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this.. plz let me know if I'm out of line
here.

Imagine what this one would look like with a figure hiking up the hillside, maybe with a dog, or a large wind-twisted pine in the foreground.

The distant horizon line is missing. Long story short, it's a perfect stage, but the actors have not appeared yet. It's all middle distance.

I really do like the light effects. You know that kind of greenish cast the sky has? I have actually seen this around sunset and it surprised the pants off me. I even started a thread ... "Roses are red, sunsets are green..."

Re: mountain side pines

I gotcha..

These small works or studies push concepts, sometimes color and mood, sometimes processes. Often I have something in mind similar as you suggested but perhaps some cow elk or a bull...

A lot of these small studies are often good in themselves. If I look up and a scene catches me because play of light, such is often subject enough for my tastes

Re: mountain side pines

If they ever invented a camera that could take pictures like this i would buy it in an instant. The captured moment is beyond real. Great stuff Larry!

Happy new year

Beautiful work as always Larry... I love those red-oranges in the dark pines.

Re: mountain side pines

finished...6"x 8"...several close-ups included, one revealing my name which I use a rounded toothpick in a pencil lead holder. Also...of the paper edge where you can see the Liquitex clear gesso. One thing, the clear (as Jamie said) is not so clear. Milky...and took away some of the warmth of the paper tone I liked.

The texture was not disagreeable to paint on...but like my pumice panels with the grit required a bit of light sanding to my taste. Then just before starting to paint I applied a spray coat of Krylon Conservation Retouch varnish...which allowed the paint to be applied with less brush drag.

The intent of these experiments with paper prep is to see what does the best job of preventing oil bleed thru into the paper. I first sprayed a couple coats of Zinsser Bullseye Shellac onto the paper, drying...then a coat of the Liquitex clear gesso brushed on. The last pic shows the back...and thus far no sign of pigment/oil bleeding thru to paper.

My next experiment will be on four coats of the shellac sprayed on, and painted as is...
