The photo club memebers are teaming with artists to develop a PHOTOGRAPH/ART show. The Show will be on display for the month of August at the Gum Tree Museum, Tupelo, MS. I am pleased that Laura Curry has asked me to team with her, because her photos are terrific. I have completed two paintings so far.
I really liked this photo the colors, and composition are wonderful. I enjoy painting details.
I cropped the photo to fit a standard frame, and simplify the composition.
FALL LEAVES (12 X 16 oil on  canvas)

This was my all time favorite Laura Photo. I love all the dust and grunge on this jug. But I found my eye attracted to the WHITE cap. I used Widows Paint to modify the photo, replaced the cap with a cork and showed the top threads. Then I took some of the back ground from the right side, and used it to covered over the corrugated metal panel on the left.
This is my modified photo cropped for a standard frame.

I generally make a fairly accurate pencil sketch on the canvas.

JUG (16 x 12 Oil on canvas)
I generally paint at least three passes over the canvas. In the first pass I try to accruately get the shape and size of major elements. And the successive passes I refine the painting and bring out the details.
