And So It Begins...
This may look like scribbles but it is actually the beginning of the large diptych mentioned a few blogs ago. The canvas is 60" x 48", the subject is Tahoe Rocks depicted above and below the surface. This is the bottom, or lower, canvas.
After applying a coat of black gesso to the canvas I sketch in the outlines for the rocks with a bit of titanium white, thinned so there will not be ridges. These lines give me a guide when I begin to paint.
After selecting my color palatte, I begin applying the paint to canvas and get lost in the process. Come back to the blog to watch the progress of this painting.
Two people receive the painting...
Boyles Family Farms
(and no, they won't have to ship it back and forth or cut it in half. I will give another)
And to you others who participated and were interested, please check back as I will do this again, give away a painting.
