It seems like people's attention is more attuned
So sometimes I post my painting snippets to those social media sites.
But since this is a painting journal - of sorts - for me,
I will continue putting my progressions with more detail here in this blog.
The story of Ann ...
On our trip to the East Coast last fall,
I snapped a photo (in an airport)
of a lady with lots of personality.
I made this sketch of her.
|Found a board for my substrate. (Matt cut it for me.)|
I coated it with PVA.
|Scratched in her basic form (bust) on a dark brown (oil) underpainting.|
It dried quickly using my special medium*.
Nearly finished, with wet paint, I added my sig.
|"Ann" Oil on wood panel 18 x 12 inches|
As you see here, Ann is a companion piece to Nan.
All I need now is a frame.
Thanks so very much for checking in.
Happy New Year everyone!
