Jumpstarting the Blog....

Yes, I know it's been a looong time since the last posting, but hey, I've been a busy person. I am happy to report that I have made significant progress on my painting of the Casselman Bridge, and that the progress has been steady -- no major missteps, all forward progress.

I'm in one of the harder parts of the painting now, the foreground water. Glazing medium works quite well, giving the acrylics an even smoother application. This helps when blending colors on canvas in long strokes.

I can't really think of anything more to say really. Except, I suppose I would call this painting, compositionally, a circle in a square or an arc in a square.

Enjoy the painting!

Note: See the posting from November 2007 if you're curious about what the painting looked like in the early stages.

That'a a painting???? Seriously, I thought it was the reference photo! You have a LOT of patience, that's for sure! You remind me of Vermeer!
