Some of what's been happening
There's no question that I've been very remiss in keeping up with my blogging. It's true, I seem to have been particularly busy, but I've really no excuse. This post will be a real salmagundi of items.
The photos will be poor, and small, and I apologize. They are mostly phone shots edited for Instagram. By the way, you can see a new sketch/painting everyday on Instagram. Have a follow at @donaldjurney .
First off, the Dead Paintings Society demo I did for last weekend's plein air class. Saturday morning it was pouring and so we started in the studio. I did a two-hour resuscitation on a painting----which is still not quite right. It does have a bit more color than this photo might suggest, and it does, actually have a sky, too.
Another one that I may not have posted is an imaginary scene in Holland.
And this, also imaginary, Dutch scene:
Then there was a winter scene from imagination.
I decided to make some small studies. I ordered 50 1/8" 12" x 16" baltic birch panels from Dick Blick. I cut them in half, yielding 100 8" x 12" panels, and I primed them. Here they are under a couple of iron weights from my Hughes easel.
I've been having great fun working on these studies. In particular, I can stop on a panel when I've got the feeling I want, without worrying about whether it's "finished". It's a good way to encourage yourself to experiment with things.
