Mostly, we authors must repeat ourselves - that's the truth. We have two or three great moving experiences in our lives - experiences so great and moving that it doesn't seem at the time that anyone else has been so caught up and pounded and dazzled and astonished and beaten and broken and rescued and illuminated and rewarded and humbled in just that way ever before.
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hammock - Thumbnail Sketch


During lunch today, I sketched out my next painting. I'll call it "Hammock." What you see below is actually about 1 1/2" wide.

And I can see that I have problems with how I see this already. The palm tree at left is not over to the left quite far enough. The coloring in some of it needs to be re-thought, especially the sand.

I'll try to sketch it slightly larger before hopping into the 16" x 20" painting.

(Scanning helps me during the painting process because it helps me to see the work more objectively and correct things early.)

Hammock - Sketch II


I worked on this for an hour after breakfast this morning, using my 1" filbert brush. The sketch is about 5" wide.

I changed out my colors and better positioned the elements in the painting. I'm ready now for the larger painting.
