We have been issued a wind warning by Environment Canada this evening: Sustained southerly winds of 70 to 100 km/h with peak gusts from 100 to 140 km/h will develop Wednesday morning. So if you don’t hear from me for a bit… it is only because the electricity is out.
I was going to post this painting on Friday along with another I painted this week. But the title of this painting is “Storm Coming.” I decided it would just have to be a Wednesday painting post. Seemed like a perfect day to share its progress.
Starting with the most yellow orange underpainting
I carefully selected a few colours. I’ve decided to capture my palettes for each painting and thought you might like to see.
Everyone has their own methods of organization.
I am not big on organizing my paints in a certain way. I think about what I am going to need and organize them in a manner I will use them.
For example, I am left handed and often work counter clockwise on my palette. Generally I work the whole canvas at once but this painting developed a little differently.
I chose my main brushes and palette knifes often having two brushes and a palette knife in my hands all at the same time.
STORM COMING 8 X 10 inch cotton canvas original oil painting is resting. It may be ready by Friday but maybe not.
Sprout question: What creative storm might be coming your way?
