The building of a Painting

Here is the still life set up.
I am currently working on an 11x14 oil on stretched canvas. I start with a drawing then draw it a second time with charcoal on the canvas.

After I have done the drawing I then begin to fill in color. I work the entire painting some artist start at the top and work down. I get a better feel for the painting by working the whole canvas at one time.

This is one of several old juicers I have. I collect them weird I know. I have them sitting around my kitchen. I like this one because it's old depression glass and I like the green of it.

Well back to the painting more on this one tomorrow.

Tree Town

I finished the second painting for the off the wall gallery in Ann Arbor Michigan.I haven't been blogging because of all the problems they have been having with the blog site. I like to add pictures and their system has been down for weeks. I spend hours posting my painting a day. I will add a picture of the tree banner as soon as I can.
