“Into the Light at the Devil’s Kitchen”
(Bandon, Oregon Coast)
Oil Sketch on Centurian Oil Primed Linen Panel
5" x 7"
I know it’s been awhile, and I will be posting intermittently for the next little while, while I finish up a number of things that need doing. This one was done on a rainy day from a drawing done on my first day in Bandon (see the previous post). As it turned out it was my best weather day, and I completed four or five sketches in my smallest sketchbook. The following few days were spent working either from sketches, or from my vehicle, and/or photographing the always interesting Bandon, Oregon coast. I’ve mentioned the Devil’s Oregon real estate before; well, this is his Kitchen ... he was not cooking anything up this particular day, much to my relief!
Imprimatura: Blue Ridge Yellow Ochre from Rublev; I’ve only used Yellow Ochre as in imprimatura once before, and quite successfully that first time. This could have used a little more drying time before starting to paint over it, but that is not always possible.
Drawing/Block-in: Cobalt Blue.
The Pigments used were: Rublev Blue Ridge Yellow Ochre, Flemish Lead White; Winsor & Newton Cobalt Blue, Venetian Red, and a minimal amount of Titanium White.
