See, this is why daily painting is so cool. I can see a beautiful Degas sketch on Pinterest, and because he's awesome but from a long time ago I can say ooh, beautiful, I've got to try that! Of course his was a pastel on sanded paper that was already that golden color, and I deliberately painted the panel that color to sketch over it.... but it is still a beautiful affect. I think part of the appeal is that the cloud is so nice and round, but with the edges of the painting showing, there's a very real reminder that you're just looking at an image.... I dunno. But that's what I'm thinking right now. And it's something I definitely want to keep experimenting with!
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at email@example.com .
