In The Studio

Had my first REAL week in the new studio... Made some progress on the pieces in progress and painted over three large canvases. Art is funny... one day you are going in a particular direction and the next not so much. Best to work fast so as to finish things before the mood shift or mind change. Not a biggie.. more of a color change of direction than anything else. Layering can be tricky, building up color from dark to light works to the advantage and I was getting a wee bit on the dark side..

Continuing with these little landscapes. This one in progress 12x12 on canvas. and five more in various stages of completion.

PRINTS  - Until I am able to set up my print station in the new studio I am still using my sun room for digital work. It will be nice when I have everything in one place. Particularly since my space in the sun room is limited. I tested another paper yesterday an 100% cotton rag velvet paper. I am not sure this is the best choice for these prints, I like the softness of the paper and how the ink is absorbed, but I also think for this work that it needs to have more of an edge. Once I have decided on my paper I will put some of these online as signed and dated prints. You can already purchase some of them from my Digital Arts page, but they are not hand dated by me and are not signed. You have more choices though as I will only be offering one size to start.
