Plein Air Painting on a Silvery Day: Demonstration Painting October 18, 2011
Painting, with Palette
Bella eyes a ground squrrel
Silvery Day Demonstration for John Iwerks Class: This last Saturday was a foggy day, so I used a limited palette; using four or five colors, and white, in order to mix my grays. Creeping up on the highlights, I pushed my color in the end of the demo in order to convey the effect of light; intensifying the various highlights in each of the various masses.
I will eventually finish the 11"x14" painting in the studio.
I am a 21st Century American Artist. Being an artist is a way of life; living, breathing, thinking creatively with every breath. For more biographical information see my Bio on my website: www.thomasvanstein.net
