Live Broadcast Studio Update

Working on final touches to cameras, lighting, painting table and equipment layout.  Looking good!  Setting up a test run with my beta test group to see how it looks on the computer screens from different places.     Added some new watercolor paintings on canvas to my facebook page. 


Three different scenes painted on location.

Value Study for Sketch from Photo

I completed a value study for the "Sketch from a Photo".  It show the levels of depth in the final painting.  Dark value in the foreground, Middle value in the middle ground, and Light value in the background.  I also planned the value transition for the water and sky.  These values will be a guide to adding paint values to the final painting.

Video - "On Location Drawing early in the AM

Drawing on location is a good exercise to develop the eye to see objects and relate the sizes and locations in a landscape.  The proportions are important for showing the depth and distance in a painting. Drawing is a fundamental skill to learn and develop to improve one's overall art.

This sketch was done early in the morning and my goal was to capture the shapes and values as I saw them.  The details of the background, etc were not distracting and it develops the basic shapes for a final panting.  Documenting the scene on photographs and then sketching the shapes makes it easier to translate into a painting.

How to Sketch from a Photo

How to transfer objects from a photograph to a #sketch book and use it to #design and prepare your plan for a #watercolor #painting.  I plan to follow up with more videos on this subject of taking the sketch and using it to make multiple decisions on design of a final painting.
