Today's Painting, "Repose No. 2" Gordon van Vliet
Today's painting was begun on Wednesday night and the model is the daughter of another model that is often my subject. The story is she is awaken from deep sleep by her admirer bearing a gift of a white rose and she is about to deliver her reponse. What will it be?
I believe I will darken dramatically the background both above the model and below the fabric. The highlight on the fabric needs a value lower than on the model.
All the value need adjustment up and down to give depth.
This piece is oil on 16 x 20 stretched canvas.
Later today or tomorrow I will post a nice landscape painted at Gibson's Landing at Keuka Lake, New York. Come back soon folks and tell your friends. I really have appreciated all the encouragement via email and the comments. Thank you very much.
