Re: What's On Your Easel?....June 2012

I am running a WIP thread in the WC Aviation Art section on this work, but thought it worthy of repetition here for not only does it show 'Whats on my easel in June 12' it also shows several stages of my artistic process on a single canvas. I do not prepare the canvas with an undertone and I have no idea why not beyond never feeling a need, therefore you can see a 'paint-by-numbers' preparation with a drawing pen on virgin canvas. Several different layers in the green jungle with barely a square millimetre of plain colour. ...and the illustration that comes from depicting a subject whose shape is fixed by design. ie a machine, and in this case a helicopter. The amalgamation of ilustration into an artistic setting that demands light and recesion consideration enables this type of work to fall squarely into an 'art' category. Finally note that I have marked the canvas around the edge with a line that will eventually disappear behind a frame; a simple but effective measure to ensure that I do not loose something important due to framing afterwards.



I hope its inclusion here proves beneficial to someone. Oil on canvas - 36" x 24"

Haven't stopped by for ages but it's nice to see there's still lots of great work going on here.

I was stuck for ages with this but got myself unstuck with some juicy Cad orange and a palette knife

Great work everybody! Here is one i'm starting. It is my 84 year old neighbor with the grouper he caught.This will definitely be an excersize in mixing different shades of blue

Nice monochromatic painting, becca. Coincidentally, I am in a workshop right now with Marc Hanson and he is having us do BW studies plein air!
