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

Ronsu, thank you so much for the input. I agree that softening the branches there would be good, also thinking a semi transparent white layer would be nice to create some atmosphere. I have a week or more to consider it though, need it to fully dry even in the impasto areas so I don't have to worry about my newest layer drying faster than that one.

Here's a little something from my sketchbook. Not going to link reference until I'm finished with it. Reached the point where I couldn't get any more color on the page without lifting something else.



Still so much to correct and fix, luckily this prepared sketchbook page causes paint to dry even faster than usual, so it's ready for another layer today. This is done in a Crescent RendR sketchbook, the paint does not halo or bleed through, and the paper is surprisingly thin but doesn't warp with oil paint. It does with every bit of water media though, so I had to flatten this page out and still didn't get it perfect. . . used Casein to tone the surface, but was too wet with it. Pretty sure it would have been fine if I had clipped it down first, but I was impatient and anxious to try it before finding my clips.

Thanks a lot Mtpalms!
I just go to villages around every other weekend with my wife and friends, and just take pictures of old doors with my phone. Living in Castilla (Spain), one of the oldest places in Europe, has its advantages: there are buildings and doors from the XI century on, everywhere (and huge perfectly conserved castles too!).
When I travel abroad, mainly to France and England, I take pictures of doors too. I am thinking of a new serie now

Indeed! Glad you have the vision to take advantage of those advantages! There are a few structures in SoCal that have been preserved from the missionary era, but they are far too 'clean' in their restoration. I need to hop down to Mexico to hunt for some real rustic beauty.

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

Good morning! (afternoon actually)

Woke up this morning fully intent on painting. . . because I always seem to have some left over paint on my palette anymore. For some reason, I can't bring myself to throw away good paint, I'll just mix it up into some mud color and keep adding fresh color to the palette and going forward into another painting. Luckily I have a million paintings going at one time so I can just jump from one to another throwing left over color into areas on each.

However, then I found the lively debate on yellow that I have been participating in for a few weeks now and thought one comment was interesting enough to pull out my tube of ultramarine from it's hiding spot in the deepest recesses of my storage area under the table. Whipped it up with my favorite palette yellow (PY110) and then tinted it out to see what colors I was getting. Yay muted grays:



I could push them even more neutral with a touch of rose, but I think it is interesting to know that I can get that neutral with just those 2 colors mixed.

Yah Marcia, Brightest Yellow. There is some impressive debate that goes on in there. Of special interest is the Spectral Curves for some of the yellows, if one can understand how to use them that is.

Those grays are gorgeous. I love gray.

I did this underpainting for a nocturne yesterday, The windows will be lit, and there will be dots of lights (yardlights) in the background.

Nice work Tom, those are some great paintings and that yellow on blue really stands out vibrantly.

Marcia, wonderful underpainting, looking forward to seeing it develop.

That looks great! The values are really strong now, so I think the final painting will be awesome!

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

Thanks, Delo. I’ll have to admit that the background color for the tulip painting is more green than the photo, which makes it look bluer. A friend asked me to donate an “orange” painting for a charity auction and I realized that I didn’t have many paintings with orange, so I made the last two for her to choose from (or I might donate both).

Of course, I had to get it crooked. It's from one of my vacations in Massachusetts. I love painting the sea!
