A good Friday afternoon on Good Friday in the studio. Wishing everyone a happy and safe Easter weekend as our thoughts are once again of those in Washington on yet another sad day in the American capital.
Today’s painting from the studio this afternoon is from the Nature Trail in the Pacific Spirit Park, which we enjoyed on our walk this morning. After I left the studio I learned that while I was painting another mass shooting was taking place in Boulder Colorado, which is why I am dedicating my painting of this special place to those who lost their lives in another senseless crime that has left more loved ones grieving once again who are all in our thoughts tonight.
Work in progress today, i.e. evolving
Seemed like a good idea to look back 4 years ago today to my post evolved from nothing
Chapter 7 in Tony Smibert’s Painting Landscapes from your Imagination is all about composition.
“Whether drawn as a crisp outline or sketchy…the result is the same:
a landscape which you evolved from nothing; and only a beginning to the possibilities”
This was certainly the case today particularly using the “Three Line Sketch”, which Tony describes as his “secret weapon…the ultimate planning tool for watercolour.”
