6 Sketches

For the last few weeks I’ve been working on longer, more developed paintings. Each practice session is still 30-60 minutes long. But I’m spending multiple sessions on each painting.

Here’s the last study I finished (for a certain value of “finished”). It took about 3 hours, spread over 5 practice sessions.

Color study of mountains and clouds

 

Here’s what I’m working on now. So far, this study has taken about 2 hours (3 practice sessions). I’ll spend at least another hour on it and post the finished image in my next daily practice post.

Finally, here are a few single-session studies from the last 4 weeks.

All of these studies, except the last one, are based on photographs by Noah Bradley. I took the last photo myself.
