Three Trees — final

I returned to this painting mid-month, mainly to work on the lower third. I limited the use of white in color mixes but favored nickel yellow instead, which turned out to be just as chalky. I like the way the space in this painting forms a box, top and bottom, front to back. My work benefited enormously from seeing how Carol handled the same location.

Suburbs

I’ve been using a sketchbook to look for outdoor painting locations that offer parking, shade and other necessities, along with the subject itself. The pen is liquid ink, claims to be archival, made by Pilot.

Went to the MFA to see the Katz portrait show; preferred the Corot, from whom Picasso — Gorky, Matisse, Porter, and many others — learned so much. Corot, pen & moleskine, 8×5 in (20×13 cm), 07/27/12

Three Trees

I painted outside this week, both on my own and with friends. Going back to the same location as last year provides a comparison for changes taking place in my work. The drawing is more specific, there is a wider spectrum of color-value, and I enjoyed the size of a moderately larger canvas. I am alternately completing a piece in one session versus sustaining the larger painting over several days. A conversation with painters at school about the benefits of working fast and intuitive versus slow and accurate energized my thoughts about the process.
