PostSubject: Two newest paintings   Mon Mar 22, 2010 2:45 pm

I have named this " Marvelous are thy Works O Lord " inspired by the image based on Pslam 103, pg 338, in My Daily Psalm Book, Confraternity of the Pressious Blood, Brooklyn, NY,1947. The artist of the etching ( I think it is an etching) is the great Armenian artist Ariel Agemian, now deceased, who spent two years illustrating this book and a book of meditations on the Gospels. Both books are still in pring and available for under $5.00 ( I believe ) on line or at local Catholic bookstores and even non-Catholic book stores. This is my photograph of my work, I will take have the work scanned by my photographer before posting it to my site.

I sketched the image first then painted in the base colors with acrylic, then covered the figure with masking fluid, let it dry, then painted the rest of the work wet on wet with W/S oils. When it dried I removed the masking fluid and painted the image in oils. Seems to have worked fine.

The top work I call " Alleluia " and is meant to be a " Praise the Lord " image. Done in W/S oils using the Bob Ross style. Did some touch up after drying.

Can some one give me advice on how to get these images loaded in proper order? I uploded the bottom picture first but, as you see, it came in second.

Linus, I love your brushwork on these. The figure is very well done!

For the images if you notice they're not in the rite order you have up to an hour after you post them to edit your post. The easiest way is to use the button to change it to what you see is what you get and drag and drop your image where you want it in your post. Just one other tip you can Preview your post before hitting send.

If you would like to just play around with the different options feel free to start a thread in the Site Suggestion section. You can call it something like test thread and just play away.

I love your colors in both paintings and I'm really happy you are able to post them here now. It is fun to see other people's work. They both project the real spirit if the paintings you have set out to project.
