ON THE EASEL

There are many great artists who send us photos of their work in progress.  Seeing what other artists are creating can offer insights and ideas - ways to use the paints, mediums, and various tools. To that end, we offer the recent images artists have sent us  "ON THE EASEL".

KIM WARD

This is a photo of Kim's newest painting.  She has completed the details in the azalea path.  The painting is 24 x 32.  The dog is her own rescue beagle.

MARK BALMA

Mark uses a medium comprised of Oil of Spike Lavender, Walnut Oil, and resin. His technique allows him to create many layers of paint superimposed on each other. Mark is reclaiming an early Renaissance technique pioneered by Leonardo da Vinci. His work is in the Vatican, and he has done commissioned paintings for several US presidents. 

BILL MARTIN

Bill uses the same “Progressive Focus Method” for animal portraits that he uses when painting human portraits (no preliminary drawing—directly to canvas with paint).  He is also finding Buff Titanium to be extraordinarily useful.  He plans to include it as part of his palette from now on, for most subjects.

16” x 20” oil on RayMar Canvas Panel
 
Buff Titanium: It seems to be working well.  I am able to “take the edge off” my Ultramarine Blue, while lightening it.  It seems to bridge the “gap” between the stark White of Titanium, and the hue that needs to be lightened.

My newest oil in my color series 
I'm using your whites and the Buff Titanium and Treehouse White for the gallery wrap 
It's perfect!
8 x 10.
