Slide Show Demo for "March Reflections"


This is my first slideshow showing several steps of painting "March Reflections". I apologize for some glare on the canvas as I photographed my work. I like to have a fairly accurate drawing when I start, even though I will lose most of the lines as I fill in with paint. The final picture in the slideshow is better quality, as I took it when it was off the easel and out of the glare.
My palette for this picture is diox purple, transparent red iron oxide, cobalt blue, cadmium red, phthalocyanne green, cadmium red light, yellow ochre, cad yellow deep, titanium white, ivory black.
The slideshow can be seen on the Daily Painter Originals video website HERE
Or on youtube HERE

We live in the sticks as they say, and the internet is very slow, but I am determined to see your video, Catherine. I will report back when I succeed!

I came, I saw, but did not conquer!The questions I wanted to ask were plentiful, why the colored background if so little shows in the end? And more importantly, how do you decide what to keep and what to cover as you progress? Pardon the barrage of questions, but my last work was so anemic! Catherine, I need a personal lesson!

Congratulations Catherine for soldiering on and working through creating the video-i just upgraded my comp and trying to figure out how to do this as some of my students have asked me--is there a 'how to' manual out there for dummies?

Fascinating to see your process and how you built this painting--and to have the self discipline to stop and then resume in order to document the process-kudos to you!
