Plucked Bert outta his brush house this afternoon and we were rarin' to go...
This was the start of my painting. On this occasion I wanted to lay in my preliminary drawing first with conte pencil. I also started with a textured colored ground.
Oil on Gessobord
This is the final, though there are many steps I documented along the way, I can't show them quite yet. I used a combination of Daniel Smith Oil paints and W&N Oil bars for heavier texturing. I have been hired by Ampersand Art hardbords to do an article for them on my process of painting oils on panel! Very exciting! So if I publish this one, all the steps will be available in the spring! This piece is inspired from wind-breakers situated along the fields of Eastern Washington. Not sure if I am finished with this painting yet,
so I don't have a title picked out...any ideas?
Bert in the rinse cycle... I am shooting for a painting a day,
so we'll see what happens tomorrow!
