    Path WIP

    I think I'm addict to this WIP for the time being. Maybe a good place for me to see my own progress.

    This is how I start my thought and then go on...

    I start with the roller, then mostly oil and knife the rest.

    Then I start adding colors and details. Up to this point is an hour work.

    I would never guessed that the final came as a result of that beginning.

    Absolutely time to rethink the tools for me. Never painted like that. But I see so many here who are producing such remarkable results got there this way.

    Fantastic. What can I say?

    Well done Pai and thanks for the lesson.

    Thanks D Akey for looking in.

    Since I'm not good in drawing ops: (actually I'm practising that's why I want to do this WIP). It's all in my mind. Sky, tree, path...and then just keep imagining how I want in the painting to be (more is I'm getting my feeling into it) ...then keep adding color and movement. It's not finish yet. At least my mind hasn't stopped in this painting.

    Nice to see the process Pai. Great fluidity to it, with beautiful colour subtleties emerging on the way.

    Thanks Bob, Nickillus and Caesar for looking in.

    I'm inspired by people in this WIP section. Actually everytime I start out the painting differently and it will keep changing along the way I paint. It's just like this one I've changed the sky again. :lol: :lol:

    Has a more contemporary feel than the other, even though it's not that different. The previous one had some umber kind of color in the clouds that make me think of old oil paintings with varnish and felt just a little earthier.

    This is more atmospheric and benevolent feeling -- like a harmony between the heavens and the earth, between the male and female principles blending together, as in old Chinese philosophical references.

    It's more natural for the sky to come down to earth than the earth to go into the heavens. etc etc. . .

    And my comments come merely from having the paintings side by side for comparison. I would not have come up with that seeing one or the other only.

    Nice turn you took with this one.

    Feels fresh.

    Thanks D Akey for the input. Yes, I found it the sky change the whole feeling as you said more in present time. I think I'm finished for this one I'm not sure what else can I add to it. It's another experiment for me.
