It's a beauty Michael! Is it finished?

Interesting use for a french easel.

That is a great use of a French easel!! Holy snap I have an extra use for mine now.

On to the good stuff though, that painting is great, the simplicity, the subtlety, the clouds, everything is right in that piece!

Still on my easel. I posted this on the main forum but haven't got feedback. 😣

The reference was cut off just above the bottom of her arm so I've applied some artistic licence and added an enamel basin. The paint is still too wet for refining.

Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......March 2018

Oh hey Ozi, apologies, I do not respond on the main forums too much in individual thread, preferring to hang out on these shared threads, it is easier to read everything in one thread than open and read each thread individually. That and usually I have less to say on a finished piece, unless it absolutely floors me. Time is an extremely scarce resource these days. That said, I think the boy’s hand is quite a bit small and perhaps the fingers may appear too long because of that. Foreshortening on hands can be tricky, and if you are working from reference, getting the brain to not see them as hands may help in painting them. I like the skin tones, and it has a very Ethiopian artististic feel to it (with the slightly more stylized eyes and golden skin tones). Looking forward to the next update.

Mauricio, that is certainly one interesting kind of animal, I like the peculiar hump on it’s back. I do not think I have ever seen one in real life, but that is perfectly okay, there are millions of animals I have not seen in real life.

Re: Welcome to What's On Your Easel......March 2018

Oil on canvas. 36x48. I've been working on this series of horizontal (or vertical?) lines. This is the largest one I've started. In terms of where it is in the process, I'd say I'm at the end of the beginning.

What I'm trying to do is walk the line between chance and intention. How can we make a painting's line quality, juxtaposition of color etc. appear simultaneously random and composed.

I don't think this is anywhere near done yet, and have a good idea of where I'm going, but wanted to share some work in progress.

I have a few more things to do to it but it won't change the way it looks right now.
