I’m off tomorrow for Idaho to attend the Western Regional Oil Painter’s of America show in Coeur d’Alene. The opening reception is Friday September 12th, at Devin Galleries and will run through October 11th. If you are in the area I hope you’ll make it down to see my painting “Highland Dreams” in real time. (I’m SO excited and nervous all at the same time!!)
Anyway, I won’t be back until Monday, so here are a few things I wanted to squeeze in before I go…
This is a detail of a painting I’ve been working on this week. I have a few deadlines coming up this month so I’m trying out a few ideas.
Below are two of the color charts I promised Edgar I’d show. The top one is a Yellow Ochre Palette and the bottom Cad Red. Click on the image and it’ll show a larger view of the colors mixed with each. I only hope you can read my scribbling! I love how you can see the effects of blues, whites and compliments and how they make grays. Is this bad? Well…only you can decide.
Have a great week everyone and wish me luck!
