I have never formally learned how to do on oil painting,
I have painted in gouache, watercolor, I do lots of collage,
but never just a straight oil painting. I'm taking an online course
Painting the Winter Landscape with Jamie Shelman.
I'm finding it to be fun and challenging. A whole new way of
thinking about painting and technique. It's also
great for refocusing me on observing my surroundings.
Here is my progress so far:
|First we made ink sketches from our photos to get the values.|
|another ink sketch|
|Then we mixed color and did quick roughs to lay out the image.|
|This is maybe 1/2 way done painted on board. I'm still a bit shaky with this|
technique and it seems tentative to me.
|This is from a different view of the Hudson river, looking towards NYC.|
I just blocked out the basic areas of color.
|Here is my second layer on this one, It still needs work.|
Whether they come out as I'd like or not, I'm having a great time
learning and experimenting with the oils.
I'll post more after the next assignment.
