Two 6″x8″ oil paintings for practice.
Here is a quick sketch dedicated to all those who love… Thank you.
I have learned that a 5″x7″ or 6″x8″ landscape oil painting should not take more than 1-2hours. If it does, then the artist is unsure and noodling and I have to constantly remind myself of that and to think what I am not sure about and to solve the problem in the head before proceeding. This 6″x8″, painting was done in 1.5 hours.
I am enjoying the portability of the Graphite pencil a lot these days. I am choosing pencils, a lot more these days, over charcoal. I start a sketch/drawing off at a service station or a restaurant and complete them as time permits in between chores.
