APPETIZER: CHARCOAL COPY OF SARGENT'S WILLIAM KEATS
|Twenty minute warm up with Sargent, William Keats, Charcoal. 9 x 12|
Nice play of contour drawing combined with laying down values.
MY ENTREE: MY SON MICHAEL
DESSERT: PASTRIES OF COURSE
|Chocolate cannoli needed highlights. These acrylics are still wet, so the color is|
still too vivid. Acrylics dry a shade or three darker. Some rose color may have to be worked in?
It was a full day of painting. In addition, I laid carpet. I can no longer stand on cement for six hours. I had
a piece left over from when we carpeted the lower level great room. I dragged it out of storage and laid it
down. We should never have stored it standing up. There were all sort of bent corners and rippled sides to trip on. I sprayed the edges with water and by lunch, the carpet was laying better.
|You get older, your legs do not like standing for long hours on cement.|
A piece of carpet makes my painting life more cushy. Take a good look.
How long do you think this carpet is going to be this clean?
