Fall of Idaho…

Posted in commentary, distributed, Idaho, landscape, Spotlight-07 with tags , , , , on February 23, 2010 by Rog

I once said “to become a good painter, I need to learn to give paintings away”.  Clearly, I still need to learn this.  But hopefully I am getting better at this.  Maybe, less talking, and more painting is the key.

Stamps are us…

Posted in commentary, distributed, landscape, PaintMap.com, palette, Sumi-E, sunrise-sunset, Wyoming, Yellowstone - Grand Teton with tags , , , , on October 1, 2009 by Rog

Thank-you Amsterdam, London, Hudson Bay, Fairbanks, New York City [Manhattan], Boston, Seattle, Portland, Boise, Los Angelas, San Francisco, Kansas City, Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, Birmingham, and the fellows at Paintmap.com.  I appreciate your support.

And now a discussion of the past… Stamps are still popular as an item to use for postage.  Except perhaps antiquated. They are also used for hunting and fishing license upgrades.  Ever hear of a Duck Stamp, Upland Game Stamp, or Trout Stamp.  Well for those regions in the USA that have an abundance of wildlife they are stamps that you affix to your license to allow you to hunt Ducks, or geese, or deer, or WOLVES!… yes I live In Idaho so I can talk about wolves being hunted… but not right here.

Regardless, the stamps are slowly on the way out.  This may affect some painters who paint for Duck Stamps and the like.  Today’s painting is a study inspired by the Ducks Unlimited International Artist of the Year, Peter Mathios of Albany, Oregon.   Peter is a skilled wildlife and landscape painter using acrylics as his basic medium.

Lamar Evening (aft Peter Mathios)

“Lamar Evening (aft Peter Mathios)”, 11×14 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas,  23sep09, triple primary palette, plus Cad Orange [inspired by Emil Gruppe].

Fred Choate’s comments on this painting is “what beautiful colors”.  Since he is not into colorist style paintings, I take is as a high compliment.  The palette used in this painting is a Triple primary palette listed below.  It is the palette and method I have been using for the last month, so finally I will tell you what it essentially is.

Triple Primary Palette 2009 [Grumbacher pre-tested, or noted]

cool blue = french ultramarine blue, or cobalt blue [Graham]
earth blue = prussian blue, phthalo blue, or ivory black [winton]
warm blue = viridian hue [phthalo green], or viridian
cool yellow = Lemon Yellow Hue [py3], or cad lemon [winton]
earth yellow = Raw Umber [Graham], or yellow ochre
warm yellow = Cad Yellow hue [winton], or cad yellow light
warm red = Vermillion Hue [Winton], or Cad red – Vermillion Hue
earth red = burnt Sienna, or venetian red [Fragonard]
cool red = Magenta [Winton], or Quinacridone Violet [pV19, graham]
cool white = Zinc White [PW4, Graham]
warm white = Warm White [PW6, PW4, PY74, Bob Ross (Martin-Weber)]

Layer Process using Triple Primary Palette 2009

OK, this palette list is quite flexible.  However, the method using it in landscape painting is not.  The key here is to use the earth tones in the initial tone, sketch, and block in stages exclusively.  They tend to dry quicker, so you can have a multi layered painting yet still have archival quality.  I use minimal Zinc White in initial block in because of this drying problem.   My initial block in tends to look like a Sumi-E painting, which is my goal.

Anyway, I wish all you hunters out there, good luck.  I think I am going fishing or painting instead.

A Beautiful Mind…

Belle View

“Belle View”, 11×14 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas, 25aug09, triple primary palette.

When painting this, I thought not of Bellevue, Idaho; but of Belleville, Wisconsin.  Yes, this small chapel along the riverfed pond is more likely an Idaho scene; and this stream could have been the big wood river.  The Sugar River flows into Belleville’s lake via a menagerie type delta.  My father Vic, Scott my brother, and I got lost in the menagerie once on our canoe.  Which answers the question, can you ever get lost if everything is downstream?  Regardless, when we finally got to Belleville, we were relieved.

By the way, did you know the pastor in this chapel, has his light on.  He is praying.  He has “a beautiful mind”.

It is fitting for, Belleville means “Beautiful Village”.

So, here is to you, wishing you have a beautiful view, in your mind.  Happy Octoberfest Recovery time!

Dream of Hawai’i

“Dream of Owyhee”, 8×10 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas,4aug09, XF palette.

dream of owyhee

There are locations of Oasis’ in the Owyhee [Pai’ute for Hawai’i] Desert.  I dream of finding them on my motorcycle.  Owyhee is a unique locale in Idaho, and yes it is named after Hawai’i.

XF Pallete
Cool blue = french Ultramarine Blue (grumbacher pre-tested)
Warm blue = pthalo green (graham)
Cool yellow = cad lemon (winton)
Warm yellow = cad yellow medium (grumbacher pre-tested)
Warm red = cad red medium (winton)
Cool red = quinacridone violet (graham)
sketch & tone = ivory black (winton) + yellow ochre (winton)
White = titanium white (shiva)

This is the first painting I have ever done without using a Turpinoid or a Turpintine for cleaning my brushes.  I am using, Walnut oil for now.  I probably will return to turpinoid, just because it truly is toxic; and I need some toxicity in my work to be a true antithesis [devil’s advocate].

Rafting is safer than Canoeing in Idaho

“Raft in Mist”, 10×8 oil on canvaboard, by Rog Lyngaas, 24mar09, Choate7 palette.

I have definitive knowledge that at least in navigating rivers in Idaho, it is safer to use a Whitewater Raft as opposed to a Whitewater Canoe.  However, the later is more of a blast!  Today’s painting is really duller then this picture shows.  It really is a muted scene, just poor lighting when I took the photo.
