I was going to say at this moment I am working on an oil painting, putting finishing touches on, but I am typing in this post; so I can’t post and paint at the same time. I will go to the painting immediately upon posting this blog. Why would I even mention this? Actually, I think in the future I will occasionally post some articles on my oil paintings, technique, subjects…….etc.
I have never posted about my art work before, that I can recall. Like blogging I try to paint everyday. Occasionally I get painter’s/artist’s block, as I do with blogging. Posts about my paintings should help with my blogging blocks. I doubt that posting articles to this blog will cure any painting blocks however. Unless of course a reader gives me an idea for a subject. I’ll listen!
The painting I am about to finish, hopefully today, is a re-do of one I painted about 5 years ago. It was of a golf green, with the flag, a closeup of the hole and flag (red flag); with a moonlit background and trees. I had a lot of errors in this painting that I realized shortly after I thought it was complete. Major errors………..like the shadow in the wrong direction. The moon and trees were not in good proportion. SO, the re-do is giving a whole new look………I put a lake in, put the trees further back and added a sand trap. With daily painting I am seeing improvement. Maybe soon I post some of my work here.
I already have some topics for tomorrow………..see it’s working! 🙂
