New oil painting from a photo I took while on a walk along the bridge connecting my island to the mainland. I rather like the way this one came out and there is even a lady I work with that may be interested in buying it once I have it framed. I’m going to let it dry and then decide if it needs any further detail work before signing it as complete.
A bit more added to this. Its starting to take shape.
More changes. I think I like what the color changes and enlarging the right corner is doing to the overall atmosphere of the painting.
Got some more work done on this one. Decided on the coyote for the animal in it. I still need to do more with the light and shadow on it, but I think its coming along nicely for something that began as a play with colors.
Spent a few hours experimenting with colors and techniques. Combination of brush and pallet knives to create the scene. Its not any particular mountain range, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t rise up from some forgotten memory. I think its more a product of my overactive imagination. I am not finished with it yet, but it needs to simmer for a while till I know what else needs to be done with it. For now, I am calling it “Whisper Mountains”. Don’t know why. Just a name that came in my head when I looked at it.
Working on people skills again. Just some sketches to try and improve my drawing abilities. People are really, really hard, but I seem to be getting better at them. Nowhere near where I want to be, but I keep plugging away.
I will be displaying and selling my art at the Beach 1 Gallery at the Country Club on Camano Island for the entire month of March with 3 of my friends that I paint with on a regular basis. I will be updating this with more information and some better pictures.
