A couple of weeks ago, I posted a few photo's of the Lake Oswego area for the Chronicle Show. I finally decided on "Shoreline Shade". Here is my selected subject I wanted to paint from that best represents the area, or at least my interpretation of the area.
Since this is a very cool toned subject, I used a very warm underpainting to help warm it up and bring it some brilliance. Some may say it's too garish, but I love a lot of brilliance under a cooler piece. So, this is it for now.
On another note, I haven't been on the easel as much as I'd like to because of the transition of Amato Gallery. It's been very exciting to be working with some incredible artists who have the vision and energy to make it sail. Next weekend we will have our Gala and I can't wait to see how that all pans out. Then, and maybe then, I will be back on the easel on a regular basis. Let's hope.
