Photo taken at 11:30am. In the style of Van Gogh I am applying horizontal steaks of paint using a palette knife. This painting is proceeding quite well, which I am somewhat surprised. Over the next hour I will be using the palette knife to fill-in the rest of the background with different shades of greens and blues, while always keeping on eye on the original Van Gogh work.
This image three 10:06 CT. I did not want to add an extra canvas but, there was no choice, and the extra 16×20 canvas connected easily.
Birthday Painting 8:19am CT. This is canvas is 2 feet by 6 feet. In the past few years, I have chosen a masterpiece painting for color. This year I have again Vincent Van Gogh. The painting is Wheatfields Under Thunderclouds that he painted in the last month of his life. Here is the link to better view this great work of art.
