Figurative Collage: Further Iterations

Here are a few iterative changes I made today on this work in progress. I am now beginning to work on shapes within shapes and to work on edges.

Baylands: Late June

"Baylands: Late June" is a painting I painted today in my studio. This is a 9"x12" oil painting on mahogany luan panel. I referenced an earlier work from late May that was on a 9"x11.5" panel.
Colors used were: ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, carbazole violet, transparent red oxide, hansa yellow orange, cadmium orange, cadmium yellow light, cadmium yellow orange, cadmium green, and titanium white.

Further Refinements:Figurative Collage (Work in progress

I'm working out the figure on this collage. I lengthened the left leg, as it was not 'working' previously. I added the chair seat and legs, as well as the structure for the window. Mostly, though, I'm working out the big shapes and the dark/light pattern. Lastly, I'll work on the edges.

I am further working out the large shapes and dark/light pattern, before going in with refinements of edges and interior shapes.

Starting A New Figurative Collage

I started a new figurative collage a few days ago. The figure is sitting on a chair and looking out a window. I'm playing with the light/dark pattern, weaving the black throughout the picture. At this point, I'm working on the large shapes; later, I'll come back in and refine the edges and interior shapes.
