LOVE Sculpture at the IMA



Oil
9"x12"

Set up in front of the sculpture at the IMA at 8:30 and completed the painting in 2 hours. Wanted to tighten the process after the Saturday morning painting. Basically: find the subject through the viewer, sketch it on the canvas, block in the big shapes, choose the color notes, lay in the color shapes, look for value and color contrast. add a few details with heavier paint, and clean up because the riding mower guy is headed my way.
