This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

The Sky Reflected In Water
I love this painting, but it takes a lot more concentration than you'd think. For one thing, I can't seem to mix the right blues! Some of them need to be lighter, others more intense. And the pinkish areas are to orange in some cases... I have a wonderful, well-used brush that caresses the paint onto the panel like it knows what it's doing, but placement of the soft-edged clouds is confusing in that sea of ever-changing blue. I'll give it another try in a few days after the current layer dries.
