I love painters who paint white well, don't you? To that end, I have decided to do 100 small studies in white, in one sitting, to push myself. These won't be a consecutive 100 days as I don't do consecutive anything anymore after last years 365 Days of Drawing! That train left the station. Toot toot.
To this end, I rejoined Daily Painter Originals this week, see big white link box to the right, where the studies will be posted along with some fine work by the other artists there.
White works by Sorolla, Philip de Laszlo, Sargent, Sergei Bongart and current day color masters Ovanes Berberian, John Asaro, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Dawn Whitelaw, Michael Shane Neal, Daniel Gerhartz, Scott Burdick, and Susan Lyon are some of the paintings I pore over. My mentor Mr. Kinstler said that 'white on white' paintings are a challenge. Try white marble against a white cloth. Later...much.
I paint pretty fast so these will be a warm up exercise in the studio to start the day. I will be curious to see where this goes.
Here is the first one I did yesterday: I hope you like.
