The days drift by as we wait for kittens and whatever comes next. Many of you know that I’ve started dabbling back into painting. First the furniture piece then a *real* painting. Other than a few odd pieces here and there, I haven’t created a serious painting since around 2006. This painting is 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas. I paint with water based oils (I know. Amateur!). I work from a photo, or sometimes several photos which I bring together in Photoshop to create a sketch. I then print out the sketch and project it onto to the canvas with a projector so that I can transfer guide lines …. and you probably thought I painted all this by eye. Nope! I cheat in every possible way. What, if anything is next? I don’t know yet.
Here it is. It surprised me by turning out better than I expected. It is truly impossible to give a beauty like Sahara justice, one can only try.
