Just returned from a two day weekend Photo-Lithography Workshop at Crow’s Shadow near Pendleton Oregon. Much was learned and the class of 12 (max) were all positive and kind! Here’s a little slideshow of the gathering.
Completed, although will set it aside and let it rest before going back to it with fresh eyes. My goal was to stay loose, although tightness crawled in a few times. Another goal was to use a color palette that I hadn’t considered before. On to the next!
I had to change the sky – the beginning one was too soft. I captured the image during an off-and-on stormy day. The sky had to be darker with much contrast and done with immediate brush work. A little too much orange – will take care of that later.
Finally was able to get back to the ‘bush’ painting. The goal is to get the interweaving and accidental aspects of nature. It took the layering of foilage, textures and colors and getting the foreground and background acting as “one” rather than the bush in front acting as a curtain or jail bars.
Same day I got another, larger painting started of a local popular beach. Plan to do a bunch of texture experimenting.
