I have been painting on small masonite panels primed with gesso. I like the texture and because I’m preparing my own panels I can make it smooth or rough. I am also painting looser and with thicker paint allowing the brush work to show. I know a lot of artist work in this manner, but it is a new endeavor for me.

Civil War Painting #1
This is the first of a series of paintings I will be doing this year to commemorate the 150th year anniversary of The Battle at Wilson’s Creek.

I love dimly lit still-lifes where the edge can get lost in shadow. This is only a small sketch 2 ¼” x 3”. I used a shadow box that I made for small still-life painting. I made a small hole in the top so that I could control the amount of light. For this sketch I covered the hole so that the only light source was the reflected light coming from the walls of the studio.

In the studio
This is only some of the preliminary work that I have done for the development of a very special painting. Planning is the key to being able to paint well, if I have to figure out how it is going to layout as I’m standing at the easel, it just doesn’t work for me.
