"Walk This Way" 16x20" here was my first "successful" plein air painting. It was done on New Years Eve 2001. This set of palm trees sit near the south end of the parking strip of San Onofre beach. I had a lot of fun meeting a lot of the locals. I remember meeting a professional surfing photographer that stopped by for a while. Hi name is Bob Foster. He has a dad who was an animator with all of the studios in LA. I asked him if his dad was Walter, and he said that he was his GRAND-father. Pretty cool. Walter Foster helped me in my early days by supplying me with some great starter drawing books. In a big way, those Walter Foster books got me started. What a cool full circle meeting I had with his grandson Bob.
It was around this time I met surf artist, Ken Auster who we lost recently to cancer. I really enjoyed the simple palette that Ken showed me back then. It is Cad Yellow Medium, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue. Also Ivory Black and Titanium White. Most of my greens are now made from black and yellow. Sometimes there is a touch of blue to cool down the shadows. A lot of paintings since this early work. Moving forward...
