"Whale Painting" #1011, First is the sculpture itself. The whale and the ground it was on painted is shown on the 2nd day, but I only got John drawn in. There was a problem with the panel, the paint kept "orange peeling" with the color in blobs. It took 3-4 strokes to make it stick, I covered it with more gesso but that didn't work so well. I don't know what the problem was, perhaps it was insect oil spray that I had gessoed over weeks before. I was finished at 3:10pm.
"Night Ferns" #1012, This painting was done at night with the light that was on the ferns. It's tough painting at night. I darkened the sky during the day with Burnt Umber and Ultramarine Blue, colored in the stems, darkened the leaves, painted on location from 6pm to 8:30pm, it was finished on the 2nd night. Tom said, "It would have been easier to use black gesso." I had left it home.
