Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

If your last photograph is a true representation (colour & tone)

Then this is the best you have ever done by a clear mile

Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

I sold the Sea King painting today
....and it is not yet finished.

I appreciate all the comments - thank you.

I take forward to my next painting confidence in use of the palette knife, and the extensive use of both glaze and transparent paint. Yellow will never again be the unsurmountable hurdle it tries to be. Reading back through the WIP and not losing sight of the time I thought I was losing the painting and the consolidation phase that proved essential. Morale is/was 'Keep the faith'.

There was also some new colour cocktail of paint never before used particulary to create a 'dark' for tonal purposes. The mixture is majenta blue and brown. Cobalt and Raw Umber for a cold dark and Ultramarine and Burnt Umber for a warm dark. Quinacridone Majenta for both. The previous 'Paynes Grey' is too blue to achieve the same effect.

Finished - Signed and Sold - and one very happy Artist. I expected this painting to grace my own walls, but it was not meant to be. Unusually; I will miss it.

Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

Credit where credit is due ... you nailed it

BTW ... look at the photograph where there is a SK on the monitor ... look at the yellow from the windscreen down to the strobe light .... There is a face there just like the one on mars

Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

I appreciate the comment Len - Thank you. This painting is a big stepping stone for me in facing challenges and embracing new techniques. My mission now of course is to ensure that the standard set is maintained or bettered; which hopefully I can do in a consolidation painting.

Now to face a big blank canvas - or shall I treat myself to a day out on the motorcycle instead?

I can see the 'face' to which you refer - and hadn't noticed it before despite viewing it many times. Indicative of viewing specifics rather than the whole - I think there is a lesson in there somewhere.
