Now I feel that I am getting somewhere. Most of the final details have been added to the left side of the head and I am slowly working my way downwards. I'm beginning to get excited as it seems that my cautions beginning is starting to pay off. Things are in their right places and the tones are starting to make sense. As before, I have been using the same mixes of raw umber, raw sienna and cerulean blue for most of the details. In this photo though, the overall painting has taken on a much warmer tone. That is because I have been trying a few different light sources, this one being daylight-balanced bulbs in my studio, all the others were in direct sunlight.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
