Behind the Scenes at the Painting Factory.

The metaphor of the “sausage factory” is often used to describe a behind the scenes look at something not often seen, and perhaps for good reason; ie. if we all had to watch sausage being made no one would really want it anymore. Is the same true for oil painting? I’m thinking not, in fact I’m thinking/hoping it will be interesting for non-painters and other painters alike to see the progression in stages of a gesso’d white board into some kind of art.

So here goes, a 24 x 36 inch landscape I started late last month.

10/28/09 – Gotta start somewhere.

A sky appears.

10/29/09 – Is that a barn?

11/03/09 – Progress!

11/4/09 – Tweaking

12/14/09 – Finally got around to finishing this painting off…

fin.

    Always interesting to learn about others’ processes. Regardless of media or technique, something usually translates, is useful, inspires. Thanks, Chad.
