This painting is developing slowly and changing gradually. At first, I wanted bright intense colors but began to realize how much more interesting it would be with the focus being on the sky.

RED Road with a little less Vertigo

A few modifications, a bit of color and it is resting. I plan on painting white lines on the red road in a few days.
30x60 seems a good size for this.

RED Road and a little Vertigo

"Welcome to My World- RED Road" 30x60

This one came to me while I was thinking of the drive up from Northern California.
"Welcome to My World-RED Road" is a 30x60 oil and wax on linen.
It was hard to paint toward the finish because of vertigo it generates up close.

A New Commission

 I began this commission last week. it is a 40x60 linen canvas stretched and gessoed with the best gesso I have EVER used, including "from the ground up rabbit skin glue, lead white, gypsum and titanium white. Lascaux makes an astoundingly good gesso! I have been using it for 25 years and have never found any better.
 First layers are Holbein Oriental Bue in wax, then a layer of Zinc White. Now ultramarine blue (a tube from 1963) that I was given. Green Erth from Art Graham's amazing paints.
Now the yellows: Winsor Newton Lemon from a tube purchased in the 1970s when they still made paint ( and I do mean paint)  Now we add the Rembrandt Scarlet red. 
next step is the drips and the REDDER reds.
It is now done!
