Today in Juneau the weather was amazing. Warm and no wind.
I painted for several hours in just a tshirt.
The thing was ... it was sunny down in South Douglas
and overcast in North Douglas!
The other thing was that even though it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon,
only about 4 people walked by.
This was the view I decided to paint ... seen thru my view finder!
Set up and progression:
Prepared canvas board is toned with Transparent Red Iron Oxide.
|Calm before the storm? 8" x 10" oil on canvas board|
I left quite a bit of the iron oxide coming through ...
probably because it was such an overcast spot! The light was actually quite flat.
(I really like how this b&w looks!)
