Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Stepping Away from the Computer…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I am looking outside my window to a beautiful warm day! The first one in a long time so I am determined to walk away from this computer and get outside!  I had a difficult painting session this morning but the painting is coming along.  Lots of arm wrestling right now.  This part and the final part is the hardest but it is always worth it. 

I am very pleased with my latest Youtube painting!  These fast spontaneous expressions keep me on my toes and it is a lot of fun to demonstrate them and talk at the same time on my youtubes. Reminds me of when I taught at Radford University. I always talked all the way through demos.

I am having a weird time with my latest Blue Ridge painting. After several layers I am approaching it the way I used to approach an oil painting in the more tradition manner. I know from experience I can never go back, only forward so I am looking forward to the next session when the brushwork will be complex and the color vibrant and varied throughout the work.  Right now it is like the lights are off as if it were a shadow of things to come. 

This overlook has such a beautiful cloud pattern and makes for a great composition.  I had overlooked this photograph that I took a while back but am now ready to enlarge on it and turn into an expressive painting with way more contrast and color than it has. As I have said many times before, I do not reproduce photographs but I oftentimes base my work on them.  As always I have high hopes for a strong outcome. They are never exactly what I want, but I do get closer and closer! 

Be sure to check out my latest youtube above. I decided to demonstrate an acrylic painting in a similar manner to my oil paintings.  Lots of work off camera but due to the fast drying time I was able to get it done for Monday’s upload.

So pleased to sell another print of Morning Light to a great Minnesota  patron and my most popular shore photograph to a great Illinois patron.  I live to paint but I do have a small collection of popular photographs and Rosy Evening at Isle of Palms is the most popular one.

Beautiful weather here today! Got to get outside!

Having a hard time getting going today but I am looking forward to my next oil painting which will be of a specific site on the Blue Ridge. 

These paintings are my favorites and they are hard. All that atmosphere and dissolution of form in the background is always a challenge but that is what makes it a great pursuit.

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube above. I decided to take a break from the abstracts and paint something in acrylics that is similar to my oil paintings. 

Lots of great comments on it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Lake Sunset painting


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Working away at my latest painting and will have it up soon!  Just a few more touches. 

Looking forward to starting another atmospheric Blue Ridge painting.  I like to paint in many different directions but the mountains of Southwest Virginia and the Blue Ridge are my favorite selections for subject matter and the hardest paintings I do. 

The interaction of warm and cool colors is so difficult to achieve without them blending to grey but I have learned so much about how to get that effect so it is more and more a pleasing experience.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with New Way to Save Paint


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Wow!  I discovered a strange way to save paint on my palette.  A week ago I accidentally spilled a little mineral spirits into my cadmium red light and it has not dried up at all and I have been able to use it rather than replace it with fresh paint. 

That is so weird!  I could see linseed oil doing that but not mineral spirits.   Sometimes I put out more paint than I need. It is always so hard to know how much of the painting I am going to change and sometimes I end up just adding a few dabs here and there.

Any oil painters that are reading this know how expensive good oil paint is.  My paintings cost a lot to make and I am always glad to find ways to keep from wasting paint.

Anyway, just about done with my latest and I am pleased with it!  Just have to be careful not to over think it and wreck it.

Cheers on a Monday! Please check out my latest Youtube above!Mid-Spring on The New River  Original 34″ x 23″ Oil Pastel painting $1534

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is so Happy with Latest Painting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

So happy with my latest painting!  Now is the hard part. Do I work in a few areas that are not quite what I wanted or do I go all out with another layer for even more complexity?  Always a touch decision and I need to get another idea for my Youtube series.

So busy!  I may stop blogging so much as I work on other avenues of exposure. Not sure about that yet but I need to carve out more time in the day.

Yea! Clyde got his vaccine shot today!  I am still waiting on an opening but I am hopeful it will be soon and I am so excited about my latest landscape. 

The light is not right now but I will get to it tomorrow.  I can’t explain why I am so happy with it.  It isn’t finished so it could take another nose dive off a studio cliff but I don’t think that will happen. Love to paint!  Live to paint!

Cheers on a cold Tuesday!  Please check out my latest video above. This one is on watercolor technique.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We don’t eat a lot of sausage since it has so much fat in it.  I couldn’t find the kind I usually get for spaghetti so I got some turkey sausage.  I thought it would be nice to try it out. Well, as I was cooking it I went down the hall to give a comment on it to Clyde.

Guess what this sausage needs? 

Sausage?

You read my mind.  There are bumpy things in the sauce but I just taste sauce.  Oh well, it is better for you than pork sausage. 

So is sea weed but I don’t want that in my spaghetti. 

Understood.  No more turkey sausage.

My latest painting took a nose dive yesterday and I wasn’t sure how to approach it today. So I just painted and didn’t think about what I was trying to achieve this time and then it took off!

As usual, they only seem to work out when I don’t exactly know how I got to the successful stage. 

Looking forward to the next session!  Joyful anticipation is always so much better than the frustration that goes along with the job. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Today I achieved another difficult effect in my current painting that I always consider next door to impossible. 

Last time I mentioned that phrase, Clyde wanted to know where Impossible is located. Argh! 

I wanted him to see the effect that is next door to impossible in this painting. 

Are you getting closer to Impossible?  Do you have a zip code yet? 

No, but there is some paint on the palette that might find you for an address. 

Time to leave the studio?

Oh yes.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Not much to say except we are very excited about the house we may be moving into this summer!  Artist and writers need a lot of space that we don’t have right now.  The house we are looking at will be perfect for us!  Now we need to get busy and fix up the one we have. 

Not looking forward to that but it has to be done.  I think my painting time is going to shrink even more than now. Ouch!  Oh well, I think I can get going with my latest one tomorrow.  First stage is done and now to get to the second, hopefully without cussing.  I never know. 

Anyway, please check out my latest youtube above. This time I was planning on an abstract but when it was done I thought some birds would make for great accents. I like the way it turned out! 

As you can see by my selections from my portfolio, I am really missing the shore so much!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

This one is from my last Youtube but I thought I would leave it up for anyone that did not see it. I love to laugh!

Clyde and I snack a lot, especially after supper.  Last night I couldn’t decide what I wanted. 

I like to complain about these things to Clyde because he usually has a goofy answer for me and, as usual, he did not disappoint. 

I can’t decide.  I have carrot cake, brownies, and cookies. 

Eat all of them.

All of them? You mean I should smash the brownie into the carrot cake and put a cookie on top?

Sure, but on top of that, add some raisins and call it a healthy snack. 

Yeah, right. I think my scale will disagree with you if I have that kind of healthy snack. 

I think I will get some popcorn – no butter.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has started another Claytor Lake Painting and Raisins on Top…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I started a new lake painting today and it was quite a different experience. I don’t know if this pandemic has me down or I just wanted to try a different approach to the first layer, but it really is wild.  I am hoping to get a more complicated system in color with this one from the start and it really is colorful right now. 

It was not fun.  As I have mentioned before a lot of artists talk about the first layer as fun and then it gets difficult.  My first layer usually is fun, so this is definitely a different type of session for me. 

I will see what happens next!  Painting keeps me going. 

Be sure to check out my latest video above!  I now have over 900 followers!  Lots of great comments.
