garden corner

This Memorial Day was another painting Monday for the local group, followed by Thai food takeout.  A good time was had by all.  I got a late start, so I have just a monochrome underpainting / value study.  When it is finished, with the help of a photo reference, I'll post the result.

This is really a nice study by itself, Roger! I'm glad you have a posting of just this, so that when you add color and detail, you'll have two great paintings.

Thanks. I have a couple of these now, where I have the underpainting but no color yet. Don't know how it will be adding color in the studio, but it should be ok if my photo reference is good.

Hi Roger, yes, i like that painting as it is...i was very intrigued when i saw you and SO doing that manner of underpainting at RR park quite some time ago. I may try it next RR Park! Great to get to visit with you both.
