Larger landscapes (process)

I’ve been planning to do larger, acrylic on wood versions of some of the smaller landscapes I did earlier last year. The idea is to use the small painting as the source rather than the original photograph. Below are the first three sittings. I like where it’s headed.

1: sky and reflection underpainting
2: tree and tree reflection
3: bringing more color into sky and reflection

Fireplace demolition

We decided it was high-time to do something about the fireplace and bookshelf area in our living room that has bothered us since we moved in. Over the last few days I tore out all of the existing bookshelf and fireplace stuff down to the studs in preparation for a remodel. I was trying to save a lot of the good lumber so it took a bit extra work to peel off the layers without just banging and sawing out everything.

Tools of the trade

I’m making these little gouache paintings using a mega set of cheap gouache i purchased online. It’s not the best paint to work with, but it’s good enough for these experiments and where i’m at right now. If i keep going I’ll definitely need to upgrade the paint (because I LOVE mixing quality pigments).

As usual, i am using mostly quality brushes because painting with good brushes increases joy by 50%.

First 12 tiny paintings

The first twelve little landscape paintings are done. Just gotta set up the next paper and masks for the next ones. I really like how they look together.
