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.

Thin Line Fatigue
Painting the lines of the wood grain is a challenge. The wood is mostly a warm color, and the grain lines are very dark; then the values change depending on whether there's a cast shadow or a highlight on a water spill. I'm trying to add a little dimension to the color as well, with some orange and deeper earth tones here and there. But it's fatiguing.
