Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

I probably will miss Caturday again (class + more films), but here's an early Caturday treat:

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

Thanks Becca, it is kind of fun to dig out some of these. The actual painting is boxed up somewhere but I actually like it perhaps better now than I did when I put it aside

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

It's not specifically about cats, but here's my image for Caturday. This local pet supply store, which is my go-to place for cat food and other feline products, makes good use of their marqee:


Mark, I looked up Brian Rigo - interesting stuff! He's a perceptual painter, and I've become curious about perceptual painting. Do you consider yourself one?

Becca, a belated birthday wish - hope it was great. Mine was on the 7th and I spent it seeing films!


One of my paintings won a 3rd place in the Landscape category at last night's award ceremony for an exhibit I entered. I don't have time to do it ATM (I'm waiting for what I hope are better photos that a friend of mine took), but will post it later today. And it sold! I'm so thrilled!

Short vacation, no oils. Trying plein air with a pencil in Verona.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

Ik...sketching/drawing is a great way to exercise when on the go...nice work with those buildings...there was a time I had a sketch pad and watercolour pens in my purse at all times...it was fun trying to capture people in waiting rooms, etc...

now you just need to keep going with it!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

I tried to post the winning painting I mentioned eariler, but when I uploaded it, the color was all washed out. I even darkened the image and tried again but it was still washed out. It's annoying but I don't have time to mess with it. I've had this problem repeatedly and I don't understand it because I see plenty of other paintings posted here with beautiful, saturated colors. So what's wrong? When I post elsewhere my paintings look just fine.

Have I angered the vengeful Gods of WC?

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

Annie, it can be your screen. If your images are resized by the server, it can happen if something is not correctly setup. Maybe. Then the solution is to resize them yourself.

Let me try if my sketch from today will be desaturated

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... June 2019

Annie, I understand your frustration...even when I'm ok with my images they are not that great apparently as I repeatedly hear my art is so much better irl than in the online images...no solution for you...

Ik...I love todays sketch...the looseness is wonderful.!
