I have 3 paintings that are in progress right now, and only time to photograph one of them this morning before I head to the bakery.
This is Kilauea, and I’m getting close. I still have to add features to the sky (read clouds) and now is the time to tweak what I need to tweak. As part of that, here is the painting in color, and another copy as a tonal picture:
My goal in looking at the black and white picture is to not be distracted by the color. Does the painting flow? Is there enough contrast to be interesting?
The holiday weekend is coming up and I plan on spending it at the Punalu’u Bakery painting. Here is a picture from when I first started there a couple of months ago.
My set-up has changed considerably since I started painting here. I will take a picture of what I do now for comparison! Please check out the link to the bakery. This is a lovely place. Good food, good treats, great gift shop, and a fabulous botanical garden as well. I am so lucky! One of my customers sent the second picture to me today and I had to add it to the post. Thank you so much Peter!
