Another late night painting the storage room. Really liking the texture on this particular Linen. Below view of the setup. Had an easier time getting the lighting setup so I could see the painting as I painted it. The lighting outside of the room was pretty dark compared to inside the storage room.
One week away. I will be teaching a plein air painting workshop, painting on location on Galveston Island, Texas. If you have never been painting outdoors now is a good time to learn. This workshop is for beginners and those who have trouble painting outdoors. Small list to bring below.
I'll be doing a demo as well as helping each person individually.
Pencil 2b, small sketchbook
Oil paint - white, yellow, red, blue artist grade
Couple panels small in size, any size for example 6x8, 8x8, 8x10
Panels can be canvas/linen, or just gessoed hardpanel type.
Brushes - at least (5) no. 5 flats, hog hair type bristle, Couple small no 3 flats, and small thin brush for lines.
Palette knife small in size 1" long blade.
Paper Towels, or rag.
Odorless Mineral Spirits, or Walnut Oil, any medium you might already use
Quite challenging this day as the sun poked behind some clouds a couple times but not to much of a change. This view is near Downtown Houston at the Sam Houston Park. They have a nice fountain and a local was taking a break from the hot sun and I had a chance to paint him. Nice spring day!
Today was a stay at home day, no traveling, so I looked around to find something interesting to paint and found this rubbish pile. Nice day to paint but the clouds and sun were playing with me again until it calmed down some about twenty minutes toward the end and was able to pull in closer to what I was interested in.
