My dead cityscape is complete (at last).
Watercolour, micron pen and copic markers on paper, 6" x 40"
My experience painting live at the RUH Foundation's Masquerade Ball was very interesting - I was surprised to find that I mostly tuned out the guests behind me and went about my business. It was much like painting at home (but with nicer clothes).
This landscape still has some drying to do, but I hope the winner will be pleased.
I'd thought I was done with these landscape oils for now, but when I was asked to do a live painting at the RUH Royal Ball, how could I say 'no?' I took a look through photos I'd discarded the last go around, and chose this one for two reasons: the sky was lovely, and there are cows. Cows! The underpainting will be dry and ready to go for next Saturday. More photos to come, I'm sure.
I've been working on these drawings from a trip to Beaver Creek on and off for the last month or so. Initially, I was just going to do some light washes of colour. Well. I left it like that for about a week before I came back to my desk and threw in some shadows. A week later, I started adding in little details. Today I went all out. Now I'm 'really done for real, this time,' but I've got a feeling I'll find something wrong with it tomorrow.
I started a little snowy landscape with the leftover paint from another session - quite different to be painting something so monochromatic.
There are only two oil paintings on the go right now. The view from Mount Erskine got 'treed' today - at least in part. My burning bushes need more attentio, the sky in particular.
