|I start with a small black & white thumbnail to work out the composition & value. I then figure out a 'recipe' card so I know what I will paint with using a limited pallet.|
|I decided to paint a warm pink under-painting for Hawaiian Blue to bring out the sparkle. I painted the majority of this as a demonstration in my oil painting class.|
The debut of "Hawaiian Blue" will be at the Lincoln Gallery's 2018 National Fine Art Show. The opening is May 11 in Loveland, Colorado. Join me!
