Working on two paintings at the moment. They are, admittedly, vastly different from each other. While I recognize that it is not fashionable to do more than one thing, I must honor my sense of adventure and explore multiple forms of expression. This is my nature, I cannot help it. I love nature, so I paint nature and experiment with how I paint it. If I feel a painting is successful, I put it up for sale, if not I will chalk it up to experience and say, "OK, that's not it." So, here is the nature one in a couple of phases of progress. I am not used to doing this, sharing the process kind of thing, but I am experimenting with what I share and how I share it as far as my creation process goes.
First, the picture I used as reference from a hike I went on with a group of people.
Color blocking and layout (underpainting. It will be lighter in the end.)
And a little further.
It has a way to go yet. I will probably just post the finished piece at this point, unless I feel otherwise.
And the other one, is VERY different, and is also in mid-production but I have decided to share both with you.
The sketch and the current form
I have also posted some more artworks in the gallery.
Have a great day,
