Southwest Contemporary Artist

15 July 2009 — “CORDOVA AFTERNOON” – 24″x30″ Original Oil on Fine Belgian Linen. Underpainting – Palette colors mixed with turpentine and MG Underpainting White. Sky: Thalo Blue, Thalo Green, touch of ochre to gray color a bit. Middle Ground – combinations of Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow. Foreground: Ochre and Diox. Purple. Back at work, but just barely — summer has arrived — setting up a new palette today. I like to block in several paintings at a time — that way each morning I can work on one canvas while the other ones dry. DC
