WORKSHOP PAINTING

All week long this demo from the workshop has been a challenge. A couple of days ago, my thoughts were to pitch it and start over with a better drawn sketch.

Now it's done, but the camera has it too red and orange. Yet, it is a very warm painting, just more subdued at the edges.

This will not be the last time I paint this scene. It changes enough, and changes me enough, that I MUST paint it again. Go here to see some of my previous paintings of this same street scene, done with various meduims including wax batik and collage. See if you have a favorite.

I love all the textures. The light at the end of the alley is superb!

The colors in this really make that back wall with the Aqua blue color sing and really draws my eye in to the painting and I find it difficult
to pull away. NICE!!!!!

I really like what you have done with this reference photo. Each painting the same but yet so different. In looking back my favorites are the 4th (one good white shape) and 5th (the batik)and I am going to enjoy what you do with it in the future I am sure.

I have always wondered if I loose something in successive paintings if I painted the same subject again and again. Well, you have proved otherwise!!!

I do like this a lot. The warm colours are lovely. I can see why this view is a favourite to paint.

I remember commenting on the 5 versions of this painting at the earlier post and it had to be the batik one and still is, despite the wonderful glow of this later work. Still a great idea, to work on the same subject with different media. Think I'll use it at a future workshop.

I wish I could figure out how to use those crayons like you do. I have them and used them just once on Alana's Kitchen, a painting that had a chalkboard type bg. You are AMAZING at texture! WOW!
