Backyard BBQ

Backyard BBQ

Oil on panel

This painting was done from a family photo that is a favorite of my cousin Bobby. That's his dad (my uncle) cooking a giant Fred Flintstone steak on the charcoal grill with Bobby and his sister anxiously waiting for him to yell "Dinner's ready."

I took a few photos along the way as I was painting at The Artist's Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place this past weekend. In this first photo you can see how I started with my usual orange/red cad backwash, and then sketched on top with a brush (gasp!) using ultramarine blue acrylic paint.

And here is a second photo-the painting is almost complete. You can see my set up and the variety of sizes of palette knives I use. I had the photo printed out as well as displayed on the ipad.

As usual, photos like this make me wish for summer to get here quickly.
