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

anth, sorry I didn't comment earlier (I was obsessing over my study!). I'm sure your friend will absolutely love your painting! It looks like an advertisement from back in the day. Have you considered sending a copy to Ford Motor Co.? I bet they'd love to see it and who knows, maybe a commission (or two or three) would come your way.

Ozi, ronsu and Marcia, thanks for the feedback and I do see the reasons that you all favor the first. Still puzzling over the value, though - I want to get it dark enough without it drawing the eye too much. And, I want to avoid the unnatural look of a Thomas Kincaid! This is a risk, given the strong value differences. How about just a little less chromatic blue in those shadows around and beyond the buildings, and using a very slight lighter value of the same hue that's there now for the beach? I may try a digital mock up of that... Some of the lights in the image don't look quite the same as the actual painting and all of this may look better in a larger version.

Sarah, sorry we missed your seascape nocturne earlier. You sure didnít pick an easy subject. I like the color generally, but agree the sun could use some modification. Do waves generally come in at an angle like that? It looks a little odd to me - maybe thatís the sign of a riptide though. Nice job on the waves themselves - you captured the look of a choppy roiling sea very well.

jollyttt, Iím sorry we missed yours too. It looks like youíve got a great start going on your rose painting. Iíve never used the indirect method myself. You did a particularly nice job on the rose itself, with each petal rendered nicely. I hope you post progress photos.

Funnily enough Annie, I've just exhibited at the Ford Dunton HQ - might have a couple of prints appearing there shortly as well

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

way to go Anth!

AnnieA, the oomphest darks come from glazing of course. i don't know kink aid and don't like the sound of it, but to illustrate at random: ochre ground, prussian, prussian/cobalt for the water; black, vermilion/phthalo green, madder, madder/viridian+ a molecule of white for the trees. trees naturally need detail in large format, ghostie wisps of sky color. but you know all this.
is there maybe something else, try playing with the buildings, roofs, their values, paint their reflections in the water etc. maybe you're about to have an idea and need time for it?

Tesh, I love the color harmonies here and the composition formed by the position of the chickens. A winner.

Great work everyone.

Some more work done on this. I still have to paint in her left hand and darken the values at the bottom of her hijab.



I'm not sure I understand why the picture is somewhat blurry.

Love the chickens Tesh! Such exquisite detail and beautiful contrast. Your girl is coming together beautifully too Ozi, such a distinctive style

Started on with this one again yesterday;

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

I have been painting what seemed like miles and miles of neon tubes this week. I think I can put it away for a few days before doing the final tweaks. I also removed something that looked cool in the photo, but I found distracting in the painting. If anyone can see where I painted it out, please let me know, so I can work on that area some more.

I also would like to smooth out the sky, I am seeing horizontal banding both in the picture and irl.
The neon on the word VACANCY is white. I am inclined to just show the shadow cast from it and not try to paint it in, it is so faint.
