In The Barn II
|The panel has been covered with a thin coat of|
Burnt Sienna and wiped smooth. Then I do a quick line
drawing to place the objects.
|Next, I wipe away areas of light and brush in more paint|
where I want areas of shadow.
This phase allows me to really think out the composition
and gives me the skeleton on which I will
build the painting.
|This is several sessions into adding color. At this point|
I tend to become so involved that I rarely remember to
stop and take photos. I begin with bright colors and
moderate them as I work toward the finished piece,
seen here at the top of the page.
