keep going @PaulB this is developing very nicely, one day I hope to undertake something of this magnitude
I was wondering if a fine-tooth comb used like a stencil might work for the awnings. Never tried it myself, just a thought.
BTW, have you looked at @EstherH's work. I can imagine her doing this type of painting.
Impressive and very interesting project! A lot of possibilities to abstract I imagine.
The fine brush wirk is great is it a 00 size?
00 - that's going to be my tool of choice for my leave work tonight and a steady hand thanks @PaulB
@PaulB Does the brand of your 00 rigger make a difference to you as well as the material it is made of? You may have said earlier that it was a Rosemary and Co. product. I looked but I'm confused. Does 2/0 mean 00 in Rosemary speak? Noticed that they have "spotters" that look interesting. Thanks. The photos of your work space are really helpful and pretty cool. Still experimenting with aluminum and will post updates at a later time. Wonder if we will be using varnish or resin to preserve them in the end. Summer
FolksAmanda makes heavy work of a simple job. Check this quick and easy cut using the same technique.Denis
@PaulB Holy Cow - I knew the size but this photo really puts it into perspective! What a tremendous undertaking and you're doing a fabulous job. I am very much enjoying your progress posts of "Paul's Cinque". I also love it that you are enjoying it so much - being able to spend time oil painting is a gift. I love your set up.
I can't wait to use cad red, sounds delicious.
@PaulB , I love all the little details. I imagine when its finished you could look at it for hours and still find something new.
Can you give us a cropped shot of the whole canvas so I can place all those little details.
Where's Wally in Cinque Terre..I think you could put yourself in there somewhere, sipping a banana daiquiri under an umbrella
I find that when I am faced with adding something, like the boat and it just isn't working out like I think it should, its a sign that I shouldn't add it. I repeat the mantra, Less is More, Less is More and poof in a few hours my mind shifts and I see what is there IS enough for the painting. Now repeat after me: Less is More, Less is More...... )) now doesn't that feel better. )
Every painting I do, regardless of the outcome, teaches me something new. How can it not?
And you are committed to mastery, clearly and this painting is already stunning!
