Today I am posting my recent trials on learning to Paint! I have done a pastel of the rocky point I am going to paint in the studio in Oils. The Pastel is on a piece of foramcor that I put a surface of fine pumice ground, I did the painting in plein-air one morning and wasn't really happy with the surface really. But it is lightweight, and easy to put in your backpack. 2 hours in to this, this is where I was.
And then this is how far I am on my block-in on the Oil -
Now I am letting it dry so , I can then go into it and learn how how to do all that---I will use retouch varnish, by Damar, as my medium is by Daniel Smith and is with Damar Oil- Now I can think about the changes I would make or how I would finish this. Interesting for sure.
