Re: Roadside

Gosh, I hope you get better, Derek. Your problem sounds rather scary.

Great painting! I appreciate seeing the WIP. I like the way you paint scattered leaves, and debris.

Looks like a nice job. the foreground bricks are out of perspective. I personally would allow some "light holes" in the mass of tree shadow and I would cast another tree shadow over the foreground area to balance it out and help lead the viewer into the painting, but that's up to you.

Nice!

You said that you won't show your paintings in case they get stolen, this would be a great way to show us some of your work just don't provide the final painting so no one can steal it . I think a lot of us would dearly love to see your work, if you can offer a critique on anything Derek paints your work must be exceptional indeed.

@Derek, I love the painting.

Re: Roadside

Awesome piece! Very detailed and precise. Love seeing your wip as well!

You made me wonder, what's the difference with this method for oil? Do you feel it helps you to focus on details? The reason I am asking this is because I work from "everywhere" to enable the feeling, then refine it down like that. It would be a strange experiment for me if I try this method since I'm not used to it.

However, now I think of it, I tried it in gouache since it's a strange medium and it works better. Gotta know values firsthand, but usually with this medium, I'm doing studies anyways.

Re: Roadside

Sid my friend, thanks so much.

Hi DM, I don't always paint this way, but I do like a challenge. I think it keeps you sharp and teaches you good planning and value accuracy. I would not want a steady diet of this method.
Thanks. Derek

Re: Roadside

Hi Derek
Thanks for jogging my memory on Mr Schmids Big Bang Method(selective start). I went straight to Alla Prima book to remind me what its all about. I know Jeremy Lipking does it too on his portraits especially. But he was taught by Mr Schmid too.

Your painting is a tribute to this process

Re: Roadside

Wondered where you'd been Derek, glad you are feeling better. My hands sometimes go numb when holding the brush and I hate it. Have to just paint less (but probably not as "less" as I have been lately.) I love this painting, it looks so like what one might see around here. Beautiful!
