Establishing darks---and thoughts about next week
When I painted this painting I had the good sense to photograph some of the steps..the sequence shows how establishing strong darks early will "carry the day". A good dark design that is merged together is something that many early great artists consistently employed. This is one of three of my paintings that is going to be in the Art in the Heart of Multnomah Village exhibit. The exhibit is at the Multnomah Arts Center and will be from August 6-September 1. 7688 Southwest Capitol Highway, Portland, OR 97219-2489, (503) 823-2787 Reception: Friday, August 6, 7-9pm.
