This is my forth update serializing the progress of my current Original Artwork-in-Progress ~ ‘Salzburg, Österreich or Salzburg, Austria’ (11″ x 14″). You can see that I’m now beginning on the center highlight of the painting ~ the historic buildings and the buildings lining the banks of the Salzach River in winter. While the historic buildings will be part of the nighttime backdrop of the painting, the brightly lit and colorful buildings along the river will be the center focal point, with the many lights and lamps reflecting across the surface of the water.
I’ll also mention that I paint on a blue beach towel draped across my new and ‘still fresh’ white drafting table in my studio, as it keeps paint off the table ~ and securely holds the canvas in place while painting on an incline, while still allowing me to turn it at will. This photo turned out much better than my previous photo efforts, as my wife used her tablet to take today’s photo ~ fun facts to know and tell, stay tuned, enjoy! ☼ 🙂
