Do you remember when my post “Dramatic Seas” from the end of December 2010? Well, it is the inspiration for the third painting I have been working on and I have now finished.
The underpainting starts with something from my memory.
But I decided to print a photograph to loosely assist as I built up the vibrancy of Orange Sea. I boldly go with the oranges of orange and started working in some cloud and mountains in the distance.
Finally it begins to take shape.
The painting comes to rest still surging with movement.
I think I am done. I post it on redbubble. I look again. Darn!
I change the painting slightly but it is crucial to the overall work. I dislike it when I find something that needs editing only after viewing it when posted. But I have come to respect that it is a different part of my eye that sees the image once it is up – kind of like seeing your home through the eyes of your guests.
Besides, that is when I was invited.
Now for the final, final painting of Orange Sea.
(prints may be purchased here.)
12” X 12” by 2 inch birch cradled gessobord original impressionist oil painting – $400 Canadian.
Sprout question: If you could paint something orange in your life what would it be?
Best of the weekend to you!
