DAILY PAINTING: Here's a background for a sketch that's underway for the next painting. I wanted a basically warm field, so I used my painting knife to lay down some color. I have a sketch underway, but I know how hard it is to photograph charcoal on paper. My hope, then, is to create a nearly full scale value study, using this background, which will be much easier for you to see. I mixed some Liquin into the oil to help it dry, so it should be dry enough to start working the value study tomorrow. Let's hope!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
