Here’s another from Dwellings Revisited in Taos. I’m not entirely sure this one is considered a Saint. A Santo? Maybe, I don’t know. Does anyone out there know? I’ll bet everyone knows who it is, though.

This is from an email I received yesterday:

QUESTION:

John,
I have enjoyed all of your art but I adore your ink and watercolors. You mentioned that you have a new palette. Does this mean you are no longer mixing the 3 M. Graham primary colors? Are you painting on wet paper in your demonstration?
I will send you a photo of a watercolor I just finished to show how your class in Ruidoso inspired me. Thank you.
All my best,
D H

ANSWERS:

Hi D,

Nice painting. It would be very difficult to make such a painting, with so many colors, without ending up with a lot of mud, when using a more complicated palette.

No, I haven't changed. I meant to say that I bought a new paint box. The pigments I fill it with will still be the same.

As for purple, it is the one most difficult color to acheive with this palette. But it can be done. Try this for practice. Divide a sheet of paper into 25 or 50 swatches. Using clean water, and a clean brush, be very careful not to allow any yellow at all into the mix. Start with a lot of water and just a little pigment and work your way up to a lot of pigment and not much water. Start with a pale pink, then add a very small hint of blue. Then a tiny bit more and so on. Then try starting with a pale, pale blue and adding small amounts of red. Explore all the different combinations that are available. Learn the possiibilities, practice, and you will do fine.

I don't generally wet my paper first. However, if you can slow down the video, you will see thst there are areas in which I sometimes paint wet into wet, wet over dry, and so on. All that just comes with practice, really; I don't give it much conscious thought when I'm painting.

When doing the above swatches, you might also want to try wet into wet, wet over dry, dry into wet, dry over dry, etc

Paint, paint, paint, that's the key.

John

I decided since I was so late with yesterday's post I should try and get this one out to you a little bit earlier. And I think I should maybe get to bed a little bit earlier.

Whoa! Thea came home from the gallery this evening and asked why I didn't poste today's painting? I said i did! Well, I just checked, and apparently she's right! My apologies everyone; I've been running too tired the past few days. I will try to do better. I will also, at the first opportunity get caught up, again, on my responses to all your so appreciated comments.
I found this Santo in my research archives, but I can't recall where I first came across the research. I found him an intriguing subject, whever I found him, and he was a pleasure to paint.

I did lock myself in my room today, and I now have a video demo to show you. But it's late, and I don't want to miss check out time tomorrow. I think it wise to wait until tomorrow, after I've had a chance to go over it with a fresh eye. Also, I will need to figure out how best to present it.

    I decided to take a shot at another painting inspired by the Santo with the earrings. I don’t think it will be the last, either.

    Meanwhile, the battle with old digital storage issues continues… I did make some significant progress today, though. Video soon!

      OK, I'm still a long way from being a digital minimalist, but I am making progress. I've cleaned out the images om both my iPhone and my iPad, and both setss of images are backed up on external hard drives. Next, I will back up both devices, iPhone to those same hard drives, and the iPad to one hard drive and a 128gb Solid State drive. I hope to be able to do both backups of the iPad while I sleep, allowing me to get busy with the video I've been promising.

      I also need to get out and find some more Santo research, and I only have a sheet or two of paper left. More should be arriving on Wednesday.

      Trying to decide between Argentina and Spain for my winter sojourn. Sicily? Somewhere on the Adriatic?Hmmm. Where would you go to get warm?
