Quiet Time (Work in Progress)

Painted Saturday, from imagination and sketches from life.

I've stopped here, for now.  I may make some changes, but I'm going to wait on this one and see what I think in a few weeks.

Oil on canvas, 16" x 16".  Work in progress.

NATURE WATCH:


We play tourist at the Oasis.

  5. Even though it's a nude, this immediately made me think of church.

  6. There is something special when figurative images come from the head. The images of so many poses, and knowing nothing was missed.

  7. Thank you, Chieftess and Margaret.

    I am liking this, too, which is why I am staying away from it for a while. I can come back to it with a fresh eye.

  8. AH, bizarre but yes, I get that feeling too. It feels dark and somber and contemplative.

  9. Anthony, yes, it's different when you don't have a model in front of you and you don't have a photograph to refer to. Probably the synthesis is more like what painters did before cameras.

  11. This composition is quite abstract for you. I like it--but then I like all your work.

  12. To my eye that blue is special--very dignified, yet rich. I saw formality, but I didn't see church before AH's comment,. Now I do, and I like that feature.

  14. Thanks, Linda, Banjo and Laura.

    The colors are beautiful and dark, in person. I'm clueless as to how to get a better photograph of the painting.

    Still keeping my hands off of it, for now.

  15. I find both, Seated Brown;Reclining Grey and Seated Woman, excellent pieces of work.
    The stronger directional slant of SB/RG gives it a power of action,
    and the rich paint and chiaroscuro lighting provides the power to SW.
    YOU must be very pleased with both of them. They are both a pleasure to explore.

  16. this one is really beautiful. Don't change a thing (also do what you want - it's your painting)

  17. Thank you, Julie. It's exciting to take sketches and transform them into something else.

    Thanks, thanks, and thanks, PA. And I will. But so far, I haven't touched it.

  18. It looks perfect as is so it'll be interesting to see what changes you make, if any.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Me, too. So far, I haven't touched anything.
