Silver Globe Pitcher: Overpainting Stage 4

16 x 20, oil on panel (detail)

I had a lot of fun with this left section of the the wax paper. The big chunky flap of paper in front was a huge lesson in remembering not to have "tunnel vision", remembering to compare the local value range to the entire painting. This area has a huge amount of information all within a few very short steps of value, so I had to be careful not to be tempted to exaggerate. Then the highlights are in another value stratosphere, making it all even more complicated!

I am thrilled to report that my recent video painting demo got a wonderful (embarrassingly wonderful) writeup on the blog Art Studio Secrets. In addition to the very nice things written, I am also flattered because the other artists profiled on this new blog are artists whom I have long admired: Alex Kanevsky, Carol Marine, David Kassan, and Paul Seaton.

Sadie, you definitely belong in their company. As a matter of fact they should be flattered to be in yours.

I really like the interplay of the subtle bluish and pinkish notes in the underneath bit.

Michael thank you. The big difference is they are all represented by galleries... which is my next goal :)

Spatula, thanks for noticing the color. There's actually a lot more color going on if you see the painting in person, the photos really desaturate the image - and also compress the values. It's driving me nuts, I wish I were a better photographer.
