more underpaintings and Lynne Windsor
Here are the two new underpaintings I have been working on this week. The light will be sunset and early evening twilight. I added more white and transparent earth yellow in the bottom one as an experiment. We will see.
You are probably wondering why I add marble dust to a ground for oil painting. The truth is the first time I did it, it was by accident. I was in a frenzy. Idea filled and excited, I picked up what I thought was a smooth gessoed panel. I began painting and realized I like a little bit of drag/texture. Oooooh I like this. And so goes the story!
On another note: you are in for a real treat as tomorrow I will post the first installment from my interview with Lynne Windsor. Last Friday afternoon I had a wonderful phone conversation with Lynne. I have admired her work for a very long time and was delighted when she agreed to talk.
I must admit it takes me awhile to organize and type up an interview, so I do it in slices. While you wait, take a moment to check out Lynne's GORGEOUS work- website and Blog.
