Glory Be (study)

7 x 8 pastel and watercolor on marble dust board $100. plus tax
This one is from the work I did in the studio today. With my plein air pieces as reference I am in the process of creating a big one.
Today I painted on the marble dust board that I normally choose when working on bigger studio pieces. It accepts the watercolor completely differently. That is why I often underpaint in oil. More studies to come as I make the big decisions.

Wow! That light is truly glorious. I look forward to seeing where you take this one!

Thanks Donna. When allowing the studies to find your way it's always a good trip. Don't you think?

I like the way you presented the rays of sunshine throught he clouds.

Loriann Signori said...

Thanks Brent. It is always a balance... because it is so easy for rays to become hokey. (Is that a word?) I love the peaking of rays, don't you? Loriann

Thanks Trevor. The studio is a fun place to be, don't you think? Just the artist and her/his imagination.
Happy painting, Loriann
