While art has been happening in the studio, not one full painting has happened in a very long time. It’s time. I have a sketch in my sketchbook that I had titled “In For The Night.” That will be my next painting.
Normally I use my sketch as the basis for my value study which means a lot of pencil work. I was watching a video done by my friend Linda Baker. She uses Pitt Pens for her value studies – much quicker than graphite and I have the set she uses.
I’ve also thought about doing this in with more of the boats that were there; however, that would require an odd size and I already have an idea for framing the half sheet above. I think I’ll save the longer version, until I find a suitable frame. This is the longer version.
I’m still working on my daily mixed media piece. I haven’t scanned or photographed any of the new ones. When I do I’ll post them. Meanwhile, Michigan Watercolor Society Exhibit entries are due soon so I need to get busy with “In For The Night.”
And go over and check out Linda’s website. She does beautiful work!
