I don’t usually, or ever, paint cars (except this week)–harder than I imagined. My partner loves feather grass…and the dappled light was the clincher.
I am ready to stop the challenge…not sure I can keep it up if I have to post the same day’s work…but it does get me to just get in there…much as I would find an excuse not to do so without it. Also, tempted to break the series…we’ll see.
I see this little house as I leave the garage and I always find the shapes intriguing. The place has changed ownership and they changed it quite a bit but it still retains its funky little shapes. I am going to do an oil version too.
Next–some oil studies and then, hopefully, an oil. It’ll be interesting to see the difference…at least to me.
This is an attempt to stay in the game, even with the High Holidays and dental appointments. If I was shrewd, I’d get 4 out of this…but…I also intend to come back and try this again, both in gouache and oils.
There’s an oil version coming tomorrow.
We went to the Pacific Palisades farmers market late in the morning…I tasted a heavenly nectarine…and then we got a $93 parking ticket! We did have a lovely late lunch…and then I snuck in this little gouache study. Stay tuned for an oil version of same scene since the gloomy skies continue.
This is a new building and I love when the sky is darker than the buildings. Practicing gouache on the porch.
I attended a little gouache workshop the other weekend…en plein air--again I say–not for the faint of heart. Besides it being 90 degrees, while approaching me the teacher started screaming–and not because of the state of my painting! She’d been stung by a bee!! Gouache is tricky…so I’m trying to practice before I abandon it altogether and all those wonderful little tubes of color dry up as is their wont!
