I think people like seeing process on art blogs, so I take the time to post the preliminary images. This is pretty straight forward. I'm basically following the same idea as in the last painting: I should just paint whatever makes me happy and not worry about anything else. As is the norm, it seems that the energy of the sketch is lost by the time I get to the finish. One of my goals is to balance that out. I tried doing watercolor-ish washes this time by not sealing the wood, and found it unpredictable, but it worked out pretty well for the clouds. I want to figure out a way to achieve soft washes like Sam Weber and Eric Fortune without working on watercolor paper because I hate framing paintings, and I like working on wood. Anyway, I have a lot of work still to do, so that's all for now, wish me luck!
