The Beauty of Fall is Coming
Sep 24, 2022
Maybe not quick enough for some, but the beauty of Fall is coming. The colors have already been showing up on my palette. While waiting for my blues to dry, I have begun some studies full of fall colors. I am eager to show them to you.
But first, let me update you on Big Blue. I made some major revisions this week. There were some discordant notes, and changing those made a world of difference. Here are a few hints as to what has taken place. I do hesitate – sometimes too long – to take out a passage, but I usually follow my instincts.
Once it was decided, the changes were easy to make. Glad I like them, because I don’t have an undo button! It immediately felt like a better painting.
SO….while the changes are drying, I decided to work on some more cloud studies. This time, I am using one image and three different ways to paint it.
They all had their advantages, but the copper leaf just glows! Remember the painting of the luna moth? Same surface. It is tricky, because it is so shiny and so slick. The results are worth it. Loving this look.
Thanks for dropping by to see this week’s paintings. I hope you enjoyed them.
P.S. What do you think would look good painted on a warm, metal leaf surface? Please leave your suggestions below or message me.
Try the metal leaf…. do a study and see how it goes? Anxious to see it !
I so look forward to your email on Sunday!
The third sunset is on copper metal leaf. It is so hard to see in a single photo. I think I will make a video to visually explain a little better. Thank you so much! I was a little late today, because I accidentally set it for 8:30 PM. Every little thing …… ugh~
I can’t wait to see all of the amended Big Blue! On warm metal leaf, how about autumn trees?
Me too, Alice! I am getting so close! Autumn trees sounds great! I am going to plan on that one. I have some good references from where I used to live. : ) YaY! Thank you.
Oh Michel these are all so cool!! I love seeing how you do this. What about a waterfall on the copper leaf? Changing fall colors yet the shine of the water could “flow” through! Just the 1st thing that came to my mind, being Fall and all!! 🍁🍁🍁
That’s a great idea! Love it. Could do a waterfall on silver leaf. On the list!
Oh boy I can’t wait to see that!!
The copper leaf is stunning! Hope I get a chance to see it Tuesday. Might make an interesting addition to my collection! That would give me one on silver, one on gold and one on copper leaf!!!!! How big is it?
Good morning, Pam. You will love it! : ). It is only 6×12, but it packs a visual punch. Really proud of this one. I’ll bring it Tuesday so you can take a look. Thanks for your interest.
beautiful and vibrant!
Thank you so much!
I love the glow behind the clouds. Beautiful as always.
Love the process,love the paintings 🖼!!!!!The colors are GORGEOUS Michel!
