The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
glad i found your blog...great composition Donyou really cought that summer moodi love plenty of weeds too!
do you go out everyday? it looks like you hardly ever miss a day. what was the tone/underpainting color, orangish? just curious. real nice don.
Hi Rob, so good of you to write--thanks. Your car a day blog is a great concept. I like those paintings a lot--especially the night stuff with headlights. Nice landscapes on the other blog too. Good to know your work--happy painting!
Actually, Mike, most of these are done in the studio from photos. A few are plein air, but not many. I try to imagine when working from photos that the light is changing and I have to get to the point, in hopes I can maintain a look of spontaneity.The underpainting color was cad orange & burnt sienna, wiped off to a light orangish.I try to shoot for posting about 5 paintings a week.
i like the way the fence lines and hill lines carry my eyes through the painting. beautiful!
Thank you, Holly.
