odds and ends – artist’s notebook
Aug 10, 2015 – I continue to work on four unfinished painting to develop my skills at doing under paintings and using oils for colour.
The four unfinished paintings are the following:
1. The Bold Street Project
2. The McClure House
3. The Central School Project
4. The Elgin Street House
The McClure and Central School projects were started as on location, sketch-paintings. The Bold and Eglin Street projects are based on photo references.
With all four projects, I will be using reference photos to complete the works. The challenge at the moment is to determine how to use these photographic references. How I resolve this challenge will shape my approach to the larger project of creating 24 works focusing on the theme of my “My Home is My Castle.”
