PaintBlog II: AugustWork I

Well, that shows confidence, eh, titling this with a “I” after it, as if there’ll be more in August. Nevertheless, or rather because of, on with the show.

When we last saw Paint Blog Two, it looked like this:

Well, I did some adding along the bottom of the picture until it looked like this:

We now have a landscape that goes across the canvas, as well as a thing-pod standing to the left. The top part of the canvas is actually not that shiny, it’s just that Raw Umber tends to reflect light pretty badly when it’s thin. Possibly a bit of sandpaper can cure that, but I’m not worried about it just yet.

Anyway, I started adding some more bits, mostly highlighting and cloud details.

Above, one can see some clouds added near the foot of the structure, between the two hills. I rather like this; it looks as if we’re overlooking some valley. Incidentally, the canvas looks pretty striking upside down…but then mine do that, don’t they?

Next, we need to add some stuff to the foot. First the tape. (Notice the two legs have been filled in.)

Then that set of tape is removed, and another added.

Some highlighting added, as well as some details on the thing-pod to the left.

Filling in the foot structure with some clouds and what-not.

Below, an overview of what we’ve got so far.

The above also shows more detailing of the thing-pod, as well as some highlights on the ground near it.

The thing-pod’s broken companion is roughed in above. More highlights and details are added, and here’s our next full shot.

Next, some details for the thing-pod’s companion (including a broken support), and some highlights on the other bit of hill to the right. So now, as of today (or rather last night), it looks like this.

Angression

Only not as shiny.

We’ll see where it goes from here, and if there is to be more work in August. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Nice piece. It sort of puts me in the mood I felt when I used to hang out on the beaches, at night, on Cape Cod (Falmouth). I always got the sense of something lost, long ago, just waiting out there…
