I still have several images from my Yellowstone trips that I plan to add to this series. Right now I am working on #5 and by Dave’s calculations I am about halfway finished. I am on a deadline for this piece so I will be “laboring” away this holiday weekend. My goal is to finish and photograph this piece so I can submit it as one of my entries to the Governor’s Capitol Show. I better get cracking!
I always start with a source photo from my trips to Yellowstone. Then I make a thumbnail sketch to work out the composition and color. Although they are limited in color choices, I use colored pencils because they mimic the linear medium I will be using
Bags and bags of fabric strips make up my palette. Nothing is safe in my house when I start looking for a color I need. I sacrificed a gold tablecloth, towel and napkin to the cause. I buy these things at the thrift store anyways so no harm done!
Here is a sneak peak at the lower right hand corner of #5. Lots of gold and interesting yellow-greens in this piece.
