Oil on Canvas
11' x 14"
Here is my original block-in below.
I left some of the warm under-painting peeking through.
Last Sunday I my daughter Lucy and I attended another collage workshop given by Karen Sako at the Mainstreet Art Center in Lake Zurich, IL. I wasn't really "feeling it" that day for some reason, so my efforts came out with very dark and very light areas instead of a nice mix of values. This time I did three landscapes from the same reference(believe it or not!) and one bird on a 6" square board.
This one reminds me of Disney!
Lots of layers of paper and pastel and paint and ink!
But just too darn dark!
I like this one the best. I like the colors and the stamping and tangling.
These next drawings are from a live model session at the Elk Grove Library with the Artist Association of Elk Grove Village. They were 1, 2, 5, and 20 minute poses. I notice that I got darker and darker!
Thanks for looking. I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday, although I am two days late! Have a good week,
