New Landscape study..

Howdy Folks.. here is another landscape study of the Kiewa Valley in Victoria. The lighting is a bit flatter than I usually like, but it had a hazy quality which I liked. Dont think I captured it here though. Anyway we keep going… “We have to go on… We must go on..”  10 points to those who can guess which movie that line is from!

Is anyone else using wordpress.com having issues with uploading/displaying images? If I upload 2 or more images, or ‘gallery’, I get the option of displaying thumbnails which can then be opened up into full res images, (the size that I save the images in the first place. In my case 1024 pixels). If I upload only one image, I have no choice but to ‘insert’ that image into the page and you get a 510 pixel res image (as below), with no way of being able to open it up to full res.

Am I missing a button somewhere?

One more painting for today..

Here is another painting I started yesterday, this one is from a photograph I took in Victoria in November last year. It’s still a work in progress.. I have two others also started yesterday/today, also from photo’s which I will post soon.

It’s been a busy day here and I’ve managed to get through a lot. It helps when you wake up at 5:30!! I was up wide awake, BING! As Billy Connelly says in one of his shows, ‘…like a man in a tooth paste commercial – ‘MORNING!’.. So I expect a midday rise tomorrow!

Here is the google map position for this painting.. http://tinyurl.com/cdc6gy

Ok, enough rambling.

And a quick shout out to a super talented dude I met yesterday with Evan, Hovig Alahaidoyan. Not only is he a great concept artist, he is a great photographer. Here is his blog, check it out! http://hoviga.blogspot.com/
