Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

Thanks Heather. I really enjoyed using fluid acrylics for the first sketch. It is good getting a value sketch down as a starting point. I am smudge prone with dry media.

Thanks Derek. I am not good enough to consider a final work in digital. I do like using it to explore an idea through trial and error.

Thanks again to all. Gary

Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

Versions and digital are a great way to experiment with design- it can be a great way to manage intensity as well. There are more neutrals in landscape than often painted-

Good stuff Gary, I like the first study with the subdued color.

Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

Your acrylic draft is looking really nice Gary. I am not a fan of digital either. I look forward to seeing the finished painting.

Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

Thanks Ken. I know that you are right about neutrals but it is hard to away from high chroma.

Thanks Patrick. I got the inspiration to try a simple warm/cool combination for sketching from Gurney's Blog.

Thanks Caroline. I have made a failed attempt at the oil version and started over. I will probably post my progress in a few days.

Thanks again to everyone. Gary

Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

I think the thing that’s throwing me off a bit is your original acrylic sketch is more or less square and the composition w/out the added trees is very effective. I agree if you go to a vertical, rectangular crop that you will have more foreground to fill and might need a lead-in. I did several 30” x 30”s and had never worked on a square canvas before, and I kinda fell in love w/ square compositions, so maybe I’m biased.

Re: Bavarian Village Chapel - WIP

Thanks Reed. I work with panels and had only small square ones. I may buy a few. Gary
