Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......August 2019

I don't really want the eye of the waves to be orange so I'm trying different colors to see what could be a different and unusual color but still work for the overall image. Because I'm still playing I haven't started on the background water.

I blocked in some color to help guide me with the direction of the water flow.

Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......August 2019

Bouncing around a bit so far this month. Iíve been working on this large (18x36) view of Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona for a few weeks. Itís much larger than I usually work, so itís a bit intimidating and time consuming.

So, to relieve my boredom I dashed off this small (6x8) painting of a marsh mallow, a wild hibiscus that grows around here and blooms in the summer. Then I got tired of painting landscapes, so started my first portrait in about 25 years. Itís a Dutch girl who just happened to be standing in the background while I photographed the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam.

Another small landscape that I just finished. I was hiking in the park near my home, and the late afternoon sun was lighting up some ferns and tree trunks against the dark woods. I tried to capture the moment in painting from some photos that I snapped that day.

Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......August 2019

Iíve been struggling this month to get time for painting, but I started this today. Its just an under painting but at least Iím starting to be able to see the idea that Iíve been keeping in my head for the last several weeks. Itís on an oil primed fabric wrapped board that I made. Lately Iíve been frustrated with my surfaces and Iím excited to try out this smoother surface.

Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......August 2019

Got to play with this piece some more today doing the foreground water/wave.. Not bad so far. I repainted the background wave 9 different times over the last two weeks before I was finally happy with it.

I was able to carve out some more time to work in this today. It definitely needs some color layers but it is further along. The lighting makes it look a bit warmer than it is in real life. Itís hard to get a good photo at night.

Good progress tonight with blocking in the large rocks and some of the water crashing/tricking over them.

I guess I'm close to done, but I always say that. I'll probably change some things after it sits around for a little while. I often look at it differently after awhile.
