In other news, I've been working on a painting that is in a larger format than I usually tackle. It is 20 x 20 inches. Here are some photos of my progress so far. I hoping to finish it in the next couple of days.
|I put a pencil grid on my canvas. Using red paint, I start to sketch out the design using my photo as a reference.|
|I continue working block by block. I like to use red paint as I sometimes let glimpses of it show through in the final painting. I can always cover it if I want.|
|The line drawing is nearly complete.|
|I used acrylic paint to block out the basic color scheme. Most of the acrylic paint will be covered by oil paint in the end product.|
|Working primarily from dark to light, I start putting in the large blocks of color for each building.|
