Starting with an out-of-focus black-and-white photo from the late 1940’s (husband’s family). Four versions. Each very informative to me. The perhaps“silliest” version (#3) contained the most emotional content, which I tried to put into version 4. What do you think?
Looking for a new direction for myself. I spent some fun time this week learning floating ink paper marbling (“suminagashi”):
Then I looked for “contemporary landscape oil painting” and found the 21st century Bob Ross: Jose Trujillo! This video link is 11:00 minutes of a conversation between Mr. Trujillo and his young son, Monet, WHILE painting a landscape! It’s very sweet and I really liked his loose brushwork and colors!
My first attempt at a Trujillo! (16×24,oil)
