Here I have started to block in the focal point tree shapes.
Hopefully, I will be able to work on the painting again tomorrow!
|The original plein air painting created in PG|
I am enjoying doing a commission painting working from a small plein air painting I painted along the Pacific Grove coast a few years ago. These nice folks bought a note card of the painting at a bookstore that sells my art note cards. They liked the painting on the card and asked me to do a larger painting for them. The storms in California have made it difficult to get to my studio until today, but I finally got a start on the under painting. I will post my progress as it goes.
I like working on a red background sometimes,
especially when there is a lot of green in the painting.
The red background will
sparkle through in a few places, adding interest.
