Last Sunday I did a painting on the banks of Snyder Swamp.
(Video link) I made this ultra-short video to show a palette knife technique for suggesting foliage.
Here's the finished painting. I’m experimenting with creating ultra-short videos lasting between one and two minutes—little "You Are There" moments. My eventual goal is to use them in an enhanced iPad iBook about plein-air painting.
Here's a detail of the painting, about the size of a business card. You can see how some of the strokes are laid on thickly and are "partial mixtures," —that is, composed of various colors within the stroke.
Meanwhile, I’m putting the finishing touches on the edit of the hour-long dinosaur painting video. More on that as it comes together.
