This blog will document my work in different phases.
Some of it is older, and some of it will be posted
on the day it is done. I will also post work in progress.
Jeff, didn't realize you had a blog! Great work here - was blown away by your eggshells and the grapes are just beautiful!I certainly can see that Munsell is making a huge difference in your work. I've always admired your landscape work, and it's such a treat to find your site...will tune in more often!Can't remember my passwork for google! so have to post as anonymous! Marsha Piper
Hey Marsha.Thanks for checking out my work.You nailed it I used Munsell for the Egg Shell painting. Not as much on the grapes, which I need to get a better photo of.I don't use Munsell for landscape work as it does not seem to lend itself to outdoor work for me.I do however use it to pre-mix my grays scales, blue, violet, and green strings. Nine values for each hue. I use the Munsell gray scale value chart for all of them as I am just mixing close values for each color. This works great for me as I have all the values and I don't have to spend time mixing on the spot.Good luck with all those democrats in town next week!
This painting looks really, really good. And I don't usually like still lifes. But wow.
And if you've got a minute, Jeff, do me a favor and tell me how one "uses" Munsell. Because I've read up on it and kind if have an idea but the actual doing kind of eludes me.
