Today I painted with a student of mine. He wanted to
try out the zorn palette.
Jeff introduced me to some Ashcan art. I was amazed
how beautiful it was.
This piece, called "The sand artist" was originaly painted
by George Luks in 1905
Using Titanium White- Yellow Ocher- Cad. Red- Ivory Black
I toned the board with yellow ocher and a bit of red.
scketched out the figure in charcoal and began painting.
I put down a brush stroke, and left it!
As tempting as it was to fiddle, I just kept putting down
Once all the base color was applied, I went to lighter tones.
The darker tones I did last.
This is the result of this method.
Although it seems primitive, I want to explore this painting
method more. I hope to get more refined in time.
