This afternoon I placed the final touches on my newest painting. I am very happy to report that Luminous Misty Falls is now complete! All that remains is to photograph the painting and then begin the printing process. I hope to have the new image available for sale in the next two weeks. Please check back to see the finished print.
Well, I am very happy to report that I am getting extremely close to completing my newest painting Luminous Misty Falls. There have been so many colors to mix with all the differences in sunlight and shadow and dry and wet areas. This painting of Vernal Falls, which lies below Nevada Fall, will be the second painting in my Yosemite Park series, and the first to bear the Roycroft mark. Here is a sneak peek of this relaxing and dramatically lit summer scene. I hope to have it finished in a couple weeks.
There have been quite a few unexpected interruptions that have unfortunately delayed my progress on my current painting Stunning Liberty Cap. However, I just completed placing the final touches on the storm clouds for my latest illustration this morning. I am now beginning the painting of the monolithic Liberty Cap as it rises above Nevada Fall which cascades into the surrounding trees. Stunning Liberty Cap is the first painting in my new four part Yosemite Park series.
I just finished sealing the drawing on the board for my newest painting, Stunning Liberty Cap, and after it dries I will begin the painting process. I have worked out my color scheme and am in the process of mixing the initial colors for the sky. I always start with a detailed drawing, and then I begin placing in a wash for the sky. I will not start making it opaque until after the sky is all blocked in. The drawing really helps when I start blocking in all the colors for each area of the middle-ground and foreground. Lastly, I will add the outlining of the various layers in order to get the depth that I am looking for in the painting. Check back to see the progress, as time permits.
Here is a preview of my latest painting... a section of the sky which I just finished painting the other night.
