My month long solo exhibit is nearly at its end. Two sales are (hopefully) pending. Please check my Facebook page to see which originals will be added to some lucky private collections. Connect with me too while your at it. Lets face it, don’t we all need more virtual friends? Meantime, “The Most Illustrious John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough” soon will be riding into a group exhibit at the Lois Guinn gallery and frame shop just a few miles south of Pittsburgh, Pa. – my fair city.
Here are the next three progress shots of my latest still life painting. Sometimes I try to work the darks in first. Painting on a toned canvas helps to do that. I say “sometimes” because I don’t follow any hard, fast rules as I paint. Sometimes I work in the middle tones first. This is one of the reasons why I cringe when ever I am asked to teach a class I suppose. I am historically bad at taking step-by-step progress shots as I work, so that is why sometimes you see a big jump in the progress of what I share here!
Couple progress shots from my latest still life painting. Skulls are fun to light different ways then draw or paint. The apples came off a tree in my front lawn. I lit and shot them before they began to stench.
