Today, Joseph started the oil mid-tones in the Amaryllis painting. His speed has slowed down. Now, he is really taking his time. The photo I took seem to be a bit lighter than the Amaryllis’s true color tone of deep red. I have gained a new appreciation for photography threw this experience. It is extremely hard to capture the true beauty of something without a professional camera. But I also realized that a artist with an eye for detail can capture a image that a camera can not. Joseph has that talent. The Amaryllis in our front yard in full bloom. Joseph can look right out the window and capture the color ratio in his head and apply it directly to the painting. The photo I took is displayed on a tablet on his work bench directly below him where his medium and plexiglass bench top is easy to get to. Its basically a entry way table that we custom fitted with a piece of plexiglass to mix paint on instead of holding a palette. He can zoom in and out on the flower with the tablet to get the detail he needs to refer to as he focuses on a certain area of the painting. He is adding the first layer of highlights now. His blending technique is really bringing this giant Amaryllis to life. I’m more and more impressed with his work everyday. I’m so excited to see the finish product and share it with you. I believe he will finish it today. That is how invested he is on this painting. Continue to view his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/sunscapesart/ as soon as he is done with it he will waist no time sharing it with all his followers. He loves sharing his work and getting feedback. I enjoy seeing the excitement on his face when someone shares the same passion about his art as he has when he is painting it.
