About This Painting

Last evening on my internet video broadcast Dave The Painting Guy I did a preparatory painting, known in painting circles as a color sketch.

This is part of a process of a larger work in which I can test at a small size how I might approach the color and some of the brushwork on a larger work.

In the case of The Blind Merchant, a commission from a San Diego collector of my work, I painted this on top of a mounted print of the pencil layout I have already done on the final, 18" x 24" canvas.

The painting is ready to go, and I will begin it in a 2 - 3 hour broadcast beginning Wednesday at 5pm, Pacific time.
