I’m back at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. This bell is in the ugly stage. The back ground is in but need to be tweaked. Tomorrow I’m back from 3:00 to 9:00. There’s a tree going in.
Washing out my brushes. Getting home will be fun.
This coming along.
It’s a bell I weather tested the oil primer and oil paints painted on the oil primer. They hung for 6 months outside so they went from 2 inches of snow to 115 degrees and with no problems.
Here’s the new truck and my trailer in all the different camping spots on this 8 day road trip. In Grant it snowed with a inch sticking June 21 2019 first day of summer. The snow started right after we setup. The solar system had a hard time for the first few days in Yellowstone. The new Ford Ranger did very well. I got a lot of new reference photos I think I’m going to use little more Sap Green.
Done for the day at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery back next Tuesday 6 to 9. The oil painting needs to dry. Then add highlights and shadows. Then add the leaves.
Second break at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery The back ground is drying.
First break at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. The oil painting’s cloth is still in the ugly stag. I really don’t copy my photos. The painting will tell a simple story.
Yes that’s right it’s a 8” x 10” oil painting of Nectarines. I’m here at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery from 1:00 to 9:00 today.
I was surprised my tree had any nectarines. The tree had to much shade. That’s all change when three palm trees came down. They will make a good still life.
I put “Oil can on truck rim” back up on the easel for shadows and highlights. It made it have more depth. It’s a 8″ x 10″ oil painting done here at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery at the Galleria Mall.
Old truck needed highlights and shadows. It looked flat it needed another layer of oil paint to push the house back. I’m at the gallery until 9 today. Then back next Tuesday 1:00 to 9:00
“Broken wagon” has been excepted into Celebrating Life Show. The painting is up from May 24 to June 20 2019.
