London, Kansas City, San Francisco, Boise, New York City… to you I thank. For it is you guys that stop by my blog the most. I am getting back to painting after a brief recess. My first piece is a post study of a study. My post study type paintings tend to be simpler and not as good quality. I do not know why that is, and for now, that is just the way it is.
“Choate’s Snag (post study)”, after Choate, 8×6 oil on canvaboard, by Rog Lyngaas, 18feb09, using Choate8-Gamblin palette — except warm yellow is Winton brand Cad Yellow Medium.
This is the first 8×6 oil I have done, hence the use of the post study method. I have been nervous about trying to paint small since I typically use one inch wide Fitch brushes for my half of my painting time. I have even used such a large brush for some of my 8×10’s. But I am convinced painting 8×6’s will help me to practice decision making with my brushes. So here is the first, and hopefully not the last.
