here and there
You can say what you want, but this would never be painted otherwise, .... what a scene!
yes it is funny,painting in the car...it is so cramped,you just wanna finish the painting and get out,together with the weather ,creates something i like...
Ron - good for you - staying with it no matter what the weather. I wish I had your drive - beautiful painting
hey Rene,i'm surprised you didn't mention the car with the headlights...smack in the middle...yet again!duuuuuuh
just can't help it cara!i mean what else can you do...not paint?
hey Rene,i'm surprised you didn't mention the car with the headlights...smack in the middle...yet again!duuuuuuh Yeah I noticed it, but I didn't wanna be a Antf**ker, Although, maybe you should try some dart once and awhile such a bulls-eye is not often shown so much. :-P
next time i will paint blindfoldedless change of centering things!
Hey Rob, I like the scene too and you really captured the feeling of a rainy day.
hi Stefan,good to hear from you!the hardest bit is finding the right spot,was lucky i could park the car there,thanks!
Hi Rob - now I've seen it all!Is this rain ever going to stop? If it's not raining it keeps looking like it's going to start any second........Can I post your painting on my weekly round-up on Sunday?
hi Katherine!yes no summer this year,it's a though time for plein air painters but a lot worse for those poor people having their houses flooded.i would like to paint the floods but feel mean even thinking about it...sure use my painting,i would be delighted to feature in your round up.thanks!
nice one Rob. You do amazing whilst squished in a car with your oils and your turps! I feel sorry for all the poor folks in UK with the floods.
Found a fellow "Rainmen" Rob, ... Edward B. Gordon Sterkte.
actually Sally,it is quite cozy in the car,bit of music looking at the people un noticed but not to long!looks like the rains are not going to stop for sme time...eeek!
thanks for that link rene,i've seen his work/blog before but lost the link,lovely stuff,a very english name for some one in Germany?
Hi Rob - you're now blogged and my lead item!see this post
thanks Katherine!great article as always.i have to say,car painting,is ofcourse not my solution,many have gone before me,Trevor Chamberlaine was a master...
I'm glad I wandered in here; I really really like that painting.
thanks!sure like your blog too!
This is wonderful!Your use of such vibrant clors reminds me a bit of Wolf Kahn (one of my favorite pastelists).Beautiful painting!Cindy
thanks for the compliments Cindy!never heard of Wolf Kahn,just had a look and i can see the color comparison...a bit
Great painting Rob. Really atmospheric and a terrific "studio" space for making it. My painting professor in college had an ice cream truck for a studio--called the "Vanudio"; part van, part studio. A total mess inside! Keep up the great work!Cooper
thanks for the nice words Cooper,we've got a campervan,but the windows are tinted wich playes havok with your values.
ps just had a look at your blok Cooper,the last four with the pinkish backgrounds are great,especially the bike!fancy linking?
HiThanks for sharing your talents. I am amazed at the set up you have with the wooden contraption. For all us 'budding' artists - could you tell us more about it. RegardsPeter NZ
my pleasure Peter...the wooden box is basicly a panel and palette holder,any odd box like a sigarbox can be used,to learn more have a look here,http://paintingwalesdiary.blogspot.com/2006/12/newbridge-on-wye.htmland here,http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=188408enjoy!
Hi Rob!Just came back from Croatia and Austria, and I also tried to paint something from inside the car, when it started to rain in the mountains! It reminded me of these pictures I saw on your blog.I'll post it on my blog this or next week. Rutger Hiemstra.
