In progress, "A Lone, Arterial Tree", 12 x 16, oils on GessoBord.

Yeah, it's sideways. I've tried turning it every which way on my PC, and it still loads to the WC database like this.

Oh, well, I think you can get the idea...

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

Struggling with the detail a bit on this one as it's considerably smaller than I usually paint, but it's coming along:



Got it a bit further on than this this afternoon, hoping to get the car finished this week.

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

This is called Debbie's porch and I've done it in a 10 hour session. Very unusual for me as I almost always paint in layers.
It is almost drying out now and I am wondering: should I leave it as is or should I work on it a little more?
Also - this would be the first painting I'd put my signature on: should I wait for the paint to fully dry before I paint my signature? Should I use simply darker/lighter colour for the signature or go for black?
Very interested in any feedback, thank you!
J.

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

Oooh, I like the detail you have added under the bridge, it really draws the eye into the painting.

(and the blocks spelling your name are just too cute!)

I am going to start painting shortly, after a 2 week hiatus, and your work has inspired me even more!

Doesn't seem like a year since you moved. Sorry to hear about the flod damage. I painted a little bit this afternoon, but not enough to show much progress.

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

Hello everyone,
After a long time not posting I am going to try to find time to dedicate to post and also participate in this forum, sharing my experience and knowledge while learning from each other. Here is a photo of my latest training still life painting in oils.

I used the following palette

Flake white replacement (Gamblin)
Permanent alizarin (Gamblin)
Burnt umber (Michael Harding)
Cad yellow light (Masterclass)
Ultramarine blue (Michael Harding)
As medium I used a slow drying medium as suggested by Mark Carder (Drawmixpaint.com)
consisting of stand oil, solvent, Venetian turps, cold pressed linseed
