"Coventry" - 8

before finishing, decided to show the layers of the shelf, so all can see what effect they have - the right end is the blue grisaille, next is the sepia, then the flaming orange, then the lemon yellow.....

"Coventry" - 7

the sepia is down, just the flame orange and lemon yellow to go - and be finished...

"Coventry" - 6

slow but steadily working my way across the shelf, having finished the leek roots and the garlic...

"Coventry" - 4

a couple more glazes of white for the white onion and think is done, for now.. so onto the leek leaves and a few layers on the yellow onion...

"Coventry" - 3

not seemingly much, but is taking several layers of white glazing to building up the white onion to its lightness...

took a little break, but found myself back at work last night, finishing the last leaf this morning... now, on to doing the marble shelf...

"Patch Work" - 5

this section is just roughed in - is all in deep shade, but not wanted to blank it in darkness, so will later go over with the crow quill and detail it, as well as darken it to being just discernible...

"REcreation" - 22


the background is almost finished with the grisaille, just more detailing with the fore wall part in the middle... 30"x48", pen and acrylic ink of imagined themescape...

"REcreation" - 20

but, slowly, the mists dissolves, and the vision begins more to appear...

"REcreation" - 19

since the background is a visualization of what the artist in the painting is doing, am wondering how much of the background do I really need to do, at least in detail - as if it was a work in progress... maybe light rock work on the rest of the wall, a few more housing scattered on the rest, and leave it as such...

"REcreation" - 17

and the ink is rolling on.........

"REcreation" - 16

having expected to having a relatively easy time of doing the background, instead found myself having a TERRIBLE time of getting anything close to what has been in my mind - so much so that have had to wipe the efforts three times ... am now on the fourth effort - and at last am getting progress

"REcreation" - 15

and the foreground of "REcreation", my imaginary landscape, is essentially done - now for the background, that vista of the artist figure described by her friend - the 're-creation'...

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

"REcreation" - 14

and the first layering of the grass is done...


Monday, August 15, 2016

"REcreation" - 13

on emerald green, the first layer of grass...

Saturday, August 13, 2016

"REcreation" - 12

the cold has set me back at least a week, but keep plodding on - getting the courtyard almost done, and the figure shadows more or less correctly in, just the top of the yard to do and the grass yard itself, along with the figures... and a couple of slim trees to do, one for the rock garden and another for the inverse corner before the figures, coming up from below, which also means a sliver of the landscape below...

THEN can get on with the grisaille background, the view being sketched by the artist as the other describes it - the 're-creation'..

"REcreation" - 10

the process of layering in the grass glazes - emerald green, sap green, olive green, red earth, light green, processed yellow, dark green... the back edge having the most layers...

"REcreation" - 9

finished the tree, and the rest of the grisaille...


now to get on with glazing colors over the rest of the foreground...
