I’m looking forward to working up a 2 x 3 foot, cloudy, winter day painting of this site.
After returning from Grand Manan in September, this drawing sat forgotten in a corner of my studio. I stumbled across it yesterday and revisited a nice bit of rocky coastline
I’ve tweaked the drawing and am pleased with the added clarity. Next step: transfer this drawing to a panel and apply crow-shaped paint.
A small study that is in progress, showing my current approach.
I am playing around with a very limited palette again. 3 colors and white. I first kicked ivory black to the curb and continued to pare down. (OK, not really 3. I use yellow ochre, as well as Cad. yellow and also throw in a second blue, when needed. So, 5, really.)
The latest. I like this pose, composition. Work to be underway soon, using the study as the foundation for painting.
Here’s a photo of a painting that I’m updating along with a picture taken from the painting site. The photo doesn’t exactly represent where I was standing when I started the painting but it’s close.
