Time and Transformation!

See the Exciting Transformation of the Oil Painting " Shady" from Start to Finish!

"SHADY" FINAL  COMPLETED PIECE (ABOVE)                           Oil on Canvas, 20" by 15"

One of my favorite parts of painting, besides the final result, is to see the transformation photos of the progress throughout the painting process. In today's blog post, you will get to see the start of the painting "Shady" from the sketch on the canvas to the final piece - and every step in between. As with every painting I do, after sketching the image onto the canvas the next step is for me to "color block." Color blocking is a term for quickly coloring and filling in the image with solid colors. I like to think of color blocking as my map to help me guide my way of knowing what piece is what to my "painting puzzle." As you will see from the progression photos, I also like to paint section by section. The traditional way to paint is to paint the entire canvas completely layer by layer, but I guess we all have our ways of doing things differently. I feel painting section by section with full detail makes me feel like I'm accomplishing more faster. I hope you enjoy the painting process and get inspired seeing the house being "built" brick by brick!
