Diane Mannion, Boca Church, 8x10" oil on linen
#9 of the 30/30 Challenge
Photo Reference I snapped with iPhone of Catholic Chuch in Boca Grande, Florida
Started with the all important thumbnail sketch!
Sketched on Transparent Orange Oxide toned linen panel with ultramarine blue and the orange oxide.
Painted light areas in first. I know... yesterday I suggested starting with the dark masses. But wanted to focus on the brilliant light and color effects here without them getting muddy. REMEMBER, THERE ARE NO RULES, IT'S WHATEVER GETS THE JOB DONE! Some darks WERE indicated in the sketch and the panel is a mid-tone, so the painting's well on it's way already.
Color blocked in without blending or working edges or getting lost in details (tough for me).
Here's the finish again. I just noticed how much colder the yellow looks in the final. The above photos were shot in the studio, the final outside with my good camera.
Will post a better shot tomorrow.
