Above are the step by step photos of the painting for the Book" C is for Clarksville on the Cumberland". Since I painted it in acrylics I like a colorful under-painting or blocking in. I do love working in acrylic and I recently went back to oils for plein air because it dries slow. Acrylic dries so fast when working outdoors that I waste so much paint.
I didn't get to the studio except for a few minutes. I met with a client for a commission piece. It will be a fun project and I'm looking forward to it. I need to do a little research, riding around the country side, before I start.
The rest of the day I was at the doctors - I HAVE A COUGH that won't go away. I didn't have a cold, fever or an infection, just this cough. I hope that shot helps.
Thanks for reading , stop by and visit!
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
