Beach Storm 03


Beach Storm 03, originally uploaded by chuckrose.

Starting a new painting. This time with real paint! You may have seen my earlier post of the iPhone version of this image. It worked well as a color study, but there is nothing like the smell of oil paints and mineral spirits.

This color study is 9.5 x 6" on masonite. The final will be 48 x 30" on canvas.

These Iphone sketches of yours inspired me to get the brushes app. I figured that since I can use Corel painter and photoshop pretty well using my Iphone as a little electronic sketchpad would be a snap. Not so. Your work is exceptional!

Thanks Neil,
It helps to zoom in and out a lot. I also use a stylus, which has its own challenges, but is easier to use than your finger.

The main thing is to worry about color and draftsmanship.

I have to say, I quite like this in its current state :) It nearly looks finished

Is there any way we can watch you paint on your Iphone? I believe I would like to see that.

A fresh underpainting is always fun to look at and the challenge is to keep this loose and fresh look after application of several paint layers -- I also notice that "there is nothing like the smell of oil paint and mineral spirits" Oil paint I grant you is the king of paint and a joy to the olfactories - however Mineral Spirits is for removal of hardened and stubborn paint and should only used outdoors and NEVER on canvas - it will deteriorate your support faster than you can paint it - plus Mineral Spirits will destroy brain cells.
