A little problem...
Today I ran into a little situation. I'm working on a large 24 x 36 inch painting of the Grand Canyon. Now my larger works are much more detailed than these little ebay paintings I post here. To get the details right, I grid them out when I'm working from my photo references...(which I am in this case since I live in Ky). Anyway, I usually use a watercolor pencil to make the grid so that as I paint, my lines sort of disappear. Well, I guess I used a regular colored pencil and the bright pink grid lines are showing through! Yikes! I'm hoping that the successive layers will cover them up, but they seem to be bleeding thru the paint. I may have to start over. Always something right! I need the practice I guess!
This little 5 x 7 inch oil painting is called Water's Edge. It will be available for purchase on ebay after 5/29/2011. Feel free to click on the link at the above right to see the other paintings I have up for auction this week.
