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. 

If you haven’t checked out my latest Youtube above, please do!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is still waiting for a shot and Don’t add sea weed…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy Again and Near Impossible…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

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.
