This is my studio view at the moment. I'm out of the city for awhile at Peter Gric's house in the country. It is a very relaxing environment to work in and much cooler than the concrete oven that the city is. When the work is done there is plenty of adventure to be had in the hills and forest. Sometimes a journey to the river is in order to cool off.

The mood of the painting I'm working on doesn't quite fit the surrounds, but, I'm enjoying all of it out here.

How to escape the heat when you have work to do? The mountains, forest and cold rivers are my Summer studio.

This Summer has been hot. Really hot. Almost on par with an Australian Summer. So being city bound is not one of the greatest places to be as the density of buildings and asphalt streets does not breath. The ambient heat radiating off all of the surfaces gives you the impression of an oven.

I did things a bit differently this time around. I marked out the drawing on the canvas in ink rather than pencil and I also blocked in some of the shadows to force me to concentrate on the values of the painting. While the ink at first appeared to be to stark, once I put the imprimatura over the ink, it subdued it rather nicely and provided an excellent beginning for the painting. After that the process was reasonably standard.
