Many times each year I am asked about my painting process. How do I begin, how does the painting evolve, the steps, etc. I have decided to post a series of photos of the progress of one painting, " Hills of Algonquin" 30"x30" oil on canvas.
I hope this is helpful to those who wish to know.
The Hills of Algonquin reflects the first colours of the season as the threes transition from the brown dark of winter colours to the fresh buds of spring. You can see the new page called Paintings in progress on www.robertmcaffee.com
The Artists Journey
This is my blog page and it is where I get to be the opinionated man that I really am. The views are my own.
I invite your replies and comments, on my virtual welcome mat.
This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
