Work In Progress: Early Spring Near Guelph

September 8, 2010

Detail No. 1 of 'Early Spring Near Guelph' (2010) by Jamie Kapitain

I often enjoy the beautiful ‘designs’ created by looking closely at a very small area of a large canvas as the layers of color are applied. When the architecture of a painting – the underlying pencil sketch and rough first layer of yellow ochre – is still quite obvious, there is a nice loose quality that is sometimes hidden on a more polished, finished work.

These design details are captured after the first coat of oils was applied on the ‘Early Spring Near Guelph’, 30×40 inch canvas currently on my easel. See the study painting I’m working from here.
