Chase 80N 34W, Vincent Colvin, 30 x 20, Oil on mounted paper, 2012

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s a piece that I’ve been working on for the last year and a half. I decided this morning that I think I’m finally done. Better images to come, the highlights are too washed out here, they don’t show all the colors that are truly there, far to bright on the photograph, but I was too excited to wait to post this. The actual piece is much quieter and more centered in midtones and darks with a few radiant highlights. I was glazing it this morning with Raw Umber, Paynes Gray, and Ultramarine, and it finally achieved the look of being moonlit which I’ve been seeking. When it dries I can get some better shots. Let me know what you think!

    Just took another look and now I don’t think it is a cave. I guess different people see different things in a painting

    Hi Vincent, This one I like a lot. Love the colors. Looks like a boat I would like to take a ride in even the cave looks interesting. Grandma C.

  3. This is Oil on Paper which was mounted onto a panel after the initial grisaille underpainting was completed. I’ve been teaching old masters painting classes and so I felt that it was time to try something different in my own work. It was made with predominantly all oil glazes overtop of an underpainting. Thanks for the comments!
