Haven't come up with a title for this yet. Oil on wood, 24 x 30 ". I've had this one on the shelf for some time now, but have put it back on the easel and gotten back to work on it.

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

Here are three oil paintings that I finished in early February. The mountain view is from western Virginia in early spring. The other two paintings are from Ireland, one of them of rock house on Aran Island and the other an ancient stone burial marker in the Burren region. The mountain view is painted on a 6x8 panel, the stone tomb is on an 8x16 canvas, and the rock house on a 12x16 canvas.

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

Here are three more paintings that I “finished” this week, although I may tweak them a little more. All three are from Yosemite National Park, including El Capitan mountain, Yosemite Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The two waterfalls are painted on 8x16 canvases, and the El Capitan is painted a a 6x8 canvas panel.

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

I’ve just started another view of Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite, and here is a photo after the first layer of oil paint. This is a larger canvas (15x30) than I typically paint on, so there is a learning curve for me in terms of technique and materials. I almost always tone my canvasses with burnt sienna and some of it it still showing through the first layer of paint.

A seascape, perhaps. Big brush, for sure, 18X24

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

Nice stuff you guys! It's super inspiring! The quality is pretty high- I hope you're getting rich with your art as we're speaking. Haha.

Anyways, I usually hang out in still life thread since I do that exercise pretty often, but like I said over in that thread. I felt the need to expand my field and now am working on a portrait of my friend's baby from a picture. Still WIP. Let me know what you think?

You have a really great start DMArtist, babies and small children are especially difficult to master, and your palette is beautiful. This is going to be an adorable painting when it is finished.

Doing a detail study of the Renoir painting 'Dance at Bougival'. I'm getting ready to add another layer as I noticed the proportions of her face are not quite right. The photo has a bit of glare also, but there it is, my work in progress for February. Oil on 24"x18" stretched canvas.

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

mtpalms, thank you so much! This such vibrant palette is actually my first one. All of my paintings are way less colorful than this one. I have worked more on it today and the face is more refined now. It's going slow though since at this stage it requires the preciseness. I'd upload it, but I don't want to spam this thread so I think I'll wait.

kagiva59, cool study. I think it's harder to get two people right than one like the portrait I'm doing. Any reason why you're going with it? I'm just curious.

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

DMArtist7, I've always liked this painting by Renoir and thought it would be nice hanging in my living room. Otherwise, I've reached an impasse in my art where I feel I have a good handle on the technical side, but am a bit lost on where I want to go from here. By studying paintings I like and figuring out why I like them, I hope to get some direction and inspiration for my own creations going forward. So, in a way, this painting is a filler to keep my brushes limber.

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

@kagiva59, Yup, I think it's a good way to keep your brushes limber! Being at impasse stage is the worst thing for artists I believe and I'm glad you're beating it! I'd love to see it when you're done with it.

(Well, I could say the same for everyone else here haha).
