To see this work larger (Click Here)
5"x 7" oil SOLD
Took about an hour end of day, but
here it is now finished. I think, for
myself anyway...for the better. Though
I caught enough sense of it in the
This was the beginning of the bighorn
above...having finished my elk earlier
yesterday... and with left over paint...
my practice is to scrape it over
to one side and mix it well...the
result being a neutral, or perhaps a mud.
Often though...a lovely mud at that!
I like to use rather than waste this mud
to start or initiate the next painting,
and having just about fifteen minutes, I
made a few marks with the charcoal vine
stick...and quickly blocked in masses. The
background is totally fictitious.
The immediate look of the work as is in
so short an order of time, reminds me
of the wildlife art of Bob Kuhn...though,
was a master.
