8x8 Oil on Canvas paper
I find that when I start to focus on details, I need to do a few value studies to help me pay attention to what is happening in a painting. In this study, I used a limited palette of black, titanium white, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, cadmium red. This is a study for a larger painting.
I love this, actually. The dark contrasted with the red/orange reflections are really working for me.
Do you have your art on display/for sale anywhere locally in Dundas or Hamilton?
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments. I will have some pieces at the Art Gallery of Hamilton Fall Sale, Nov 4 to 7.
Lovely! Good contrast of light and darks! Do you always make a sketch for all your paintings?
Beautiful, CJ. The limited color highlights the values, making a stunning composition from an every day scene.
I almost always do a thumbnail sketch in pencil to check the composition and values and see if the picture will work. When doing a larger painting, I will often do an oil or acrylic sketch, but not always.
Wonderful mood! Love the shiny street and the long reflections.
The reflections are so beautiful. I too, love the reds in the painting.
This is perfect, Catherine. Not too fussy, but full of information. In a few strokes, you made the car leaving the left edge look like one I'd like to own.
My eye is immediately drawn to the long-stride walker. This painting is wonderful in its simplicity. Just perfectly beautiful, Catherine!
