Re: Roadside

I really like how you've painted the rocks; don't think your work has suffered at all. Beautiful greys. PT is amazing so hopefully will help you recover soon. Sending healing thoughts to you.

Re: Roadside

I don't know how I missed this earlier. What an amazing painting and amazing approach. I had thought the method might be unique to Schmid, and perhaps the result of a photographic memory! Yes, I can see that an excellent drawing would be absolutely crucial for getting it right. Kudos for yet another hit out of the park.

I hope you're on the mend and will keep you in my prayers, Derek.

Re: Roadside

Really a nice painting and it does look quite challenging to start from a loose drawing on white background, well done indeed!

Re: Roadside

I love your painting and the method to create it. It very effective economy of time when work without doing many of those oil paint underlayers. Sometimes I do very fresh-looking brush work underpainting, but after I need to cover it with another layer. And sometimes new layer look boring in comparison with underlayer. Especially when I do Green Earth verdaccio for women portraits.
Did you ever try to make a very light acrylic underlayers in different colors than the final paint layer?

Re: Roadside

You’ll be in my prayers too, Derek, claiming full recovery as well as patience and peace. PT stinks, but is worth it. I just can’t think God will let such talent waste away. Your painting and comments have come to mean a lot to me, and to many others, as well. Far more than you’d probably believe!

This painting is great, as usual, and the technique is pretty cool: a serious change of pace that makes sense if one has the foresight to envision it all. Did you find the time required to be significantly different from your more usual method?

btw, you have a truly lovely expression of trees!

Re: Roadside

Wow, I thought I had posted about awesome this painting is, evidently I hadn’t though. Great work Derek, you make this approach seem so easy and simple. Interestingly enough I have been considering doing a new approach myself lately, will have to record or at least document the process at some point to show everyone. Keep up the awesome paintings!

Re: Roadside

Judi....so kind of you. This is a bit of an old thread and I am much better thanks to PT, fish oil capsules, turmeric, and the occasional Scotch on the rocks.
Thanks for your comments.

Hi Delo: I think you might like the process. I've been experimenting with no toned surface, just white. The colors really glow as Monet knew.
Thanks my friend.
