Online Painting I did today from 1-3 p.m.


Gypsies

Well, this was fun. This is a 12" x 12" oil on canvas panel. I captured the reference photo from my monitor by pushing the print screen key and pasting the image into Paint. I took several snapshots like that of a full screen broadcast of my nephew Jake's band from Sedona, AZ last night. His band is called Wine And Alchemy and they do gypsy type music, complete with a belly dancer. I made a few changes from the reference in the position of her arms. This photo seems super saturated in color and I'm not sure it's that intense. I'll try to get a better photo later.
Thank you to the sweet souls who hung out with me on Ustream.tv while I painted today. You made it all worthwhile!

Susan, I had a wonderful time watching you paint this today. You were right about the colors, it is different than what I was seeing. My screen showed the colors much darker which gave it a more brooding attitude. This is lovely. Thanks again for allowing us to join you.

I'm sorry, Barbara- I put the notice up on the blog just an hour or two before starting to paint. I'd been so absorbed with the blog workshop, I didn't think ahead. I did miss you! Next time I'll give a head's up.
