Textured Tanker

The layering of textures upon the surface of this tanker car
piqued my interest; fuel oil over letters, letters over rust,
rust peeling away to expose the underlying
structure, shadows casting over the entirety.

Quang Ho

Jeanie Schlump attended a pastel demo in Denver
by Quang Ho. The pastel was developed
very loosely over a period of 2 hours
as Quang Ho explained his process.

Black & white photo above as seen on computer screen
was used by Quang Ho for his demonstration. 

  
Using the broad side of pastel sticks, Quang Ho developed large
passages of dark and light values on a medium ground.
Colors were assessed randomly but still keeping the values
consistent with the picture. At this stage, the brown page
is the complementary color which is showing
through the various greens.


Quang started with a box of Terry Ludwig landscape greens,
then added complementary reds, still relying on the value shapes
as his reference.

Laramie Art Guild hosts Chuck Egnaczak




                   Chuck Egnaczak from Works of Wyoming
presented the LAG with two sessions discussing 
The Business of Art.

Chuck gave the members of the LAG
pointers on self-promotion, approaching galleries, as well as
pros & cons of websites, blogs, and Facebook
accounts.


Egnaczak's dynamic personality got all the members 

of our guild involved in his presentation and started us
thinking about our individual goals.


Chuck asked each member questions 
to make sure that everyone
interacted with him and other members of the guild.

George in Green

George posed for the LAG again this month. I realized after I started painting that I had not brought any blues whatsoever and I had only permanent green light. Most of this was rendered in Burnt umber, burnt sienna, cadmium red light, yellow ochre & permanent green light. Upon returning to the studio I mixed phthalo blue and burnt umber together to form the darkest darks.

Amy in Rose (in progress)

Today 4 members of the LAG, Tony & Sandra Guzzo, Joanne Ramsey, Jeanie Schlump and a guest, Adam Adkison painted our model during a 2-hour session. This is Jeanie Schlump's acrylic in progress. Because no one finished, we took some reference photos and will complete the portrait from a photo-reference shot. Live observation of the model is always good practice and preferable to copying photos.
