Painting a series is an interesting venture
I've begun a series that started
with this one:
The blog post about Nan is HERE;
I finished her just about 4 years ago this month!
(I didn't say this was a fast series ...)
The post about Ann is HERE from a few days into this year.
I didn't have a photo of my own that struck my fancy for my next painting,
but I did find a Tiny Desk Concert with a guitar player that had
a simplicity that looked good so I took a couple of screen shots,
cropped them and I started composing
a painting ...
Here are the first progress photos.
(The guitar player may be recognizable in the photo,
but by the time I am finished, she probably won't be
... I don't even want her to be.)
|My board is 18 x 12, as the other two paintings have been. This shot shows the photo in b&w on iPad.|
|Grid lines and sketch.|
|Darks going on (made with Ultramarine Blue + Burnt Umber).|
|Decided on some greens for the background.|
I know the guitar is going to be light but not sure what color yet.
There will be a pause of several days here, but thank you for checking in, and stay
tuned for the final! I am anxious to see what happens.
... and, as always Happy Painting!
