On the Fence



Here is a shot of my easel and a piece on it that I painted yesterday. I'm thinking the palette shot is one of my favorites when they are shared online so here is my contribution to that. This piece was my reaction to a perfect day. It was low 70s, slight breeze, painted at one of my favorite locations to go to every year, Lilac Cottage. Topping it all off the street name there is " Summer St" Doesn't get much better.

Beautiful painting, Dan.

Looking great Dan - I really like the shot of the setup on location as well. Its nice to see what is in front of the artists at the time and also see people's color palettes in action.

A great photograph of the artist at work - lovely work and the tools of your trade. I think the value range painted along the bottom of the upright is a first rate notion and explains a little about your skill in producing realistic value ranges in your work.

It is a superb painting and the palette looks pretty good too!

Thank you Karla. Perfect it was!

Hi Pam, thank you! And you're welcome!

Thank you Celene!

Thanks Chris! I am glad I kept the palette pretty organized on this one since i photographed it..
It's pretty shocking looking back how organized it is...?.

Hi Mick, thank you! The value scale on the bottom is usually used for teaching or when I'm in lack luster lighting conditions. Like sun on the palette and not the painting or nocturnes. My values used in a painting are still relative to each other not based on the chart. I have been doing this little chart on my easels for quite a while now. Think of giving it a try.

Thank you Rolina!

This is fabulous and takes my breath away. A little dramatic, I know, but true!

Hi Denise, thank you! Drama is great when it comes to paintings and compliments of my paintings! Ha!
