Continuing on with the color studies, I enjoyed doing this high key piece. I did not use an underpainting on this one, keeping it light using the white paper. And no hard pastels here just the super soft Senneliers and Schminkes.
Continuing on in the series, here is a more harmonious, analogous color scheme. As with the others, I am offering free shipping on the first day that it is posted in my Daily Painters Gallery and it includes a borderless, glass clip frame so it is ready to hang or slip into any standard 5x7" frame.
This little study went on quite the journey today. It began with a purple and yellow wet pastel underpainting. Working with a limited palette it went from strong colors to muted grays. It was scrubbed, wiped off, blended, glazed, hatched and somehow in the end returned to looking very similar to the original empty boat. I did enjoy the journey.
Second in a series of color studies. This piece has a cool red pastel underpainting rather than my usual cool pinks. I use hard pastels and a disposable spongy paint brush to scrub in the underpainting.
This piece will be available for $100 Tuesday in My Daily Painters Gallery. Shipping is free if you purchase the piece the first day that it is posted.
In November I seem to have a need to play with color. I plan on doing about a dozen of these boats with different colors, underpaintings, techniques, etc. I will be offering them in borderless 5x7" glass clip frames so they could be hung as is or easily slipped into a standard 5x7" frame. They will be priced at just $100 and if you purchase one on the first day that I offer it on Daily Painters the shipping will be free.
