Painting Rocks


Something really clicked for me this week as I painted rocks. In the past when I wanted to paint thousands of them, particularly in river beds, I had tried several techniques. I might have been seen dotting drops of paint, creating individually shaded rocks (groan), laying down a wash of the general rocky color through blurred eyes, etc. This week I tried edging the cracks and the dark holes of the river bed. Though it was a bit tedious, I found it was much quicker and more accurate than anything else I'd tried. Given some more time I want to add some shading and assorted color. Maybe I will paint those same rocks next Sabbath. Art makes mundane marvelous.

By the by, that lead weight of color at the bottom of the picture is the shadow of a bridge.

Nice rock technique! I remember figuring out a rock technique (not for many rocks, for texture) and I rapidly used it in every painting. We need to paint together sometime! Oh, and you have spam in your comments.
