Rising Star

Beginning with three prestudies, Mark leads you through the development of "Rising Star", a painting of a stable hand at a summer retreat ranch.

This first study illustrates my initial idea for the painting.  While beginning studies like this one may not be reflected in a final painting, they do serve as a "warm up" for that work.  I generally try to get the feel for the subject by  developing a sense for proportions, perspective, composition and tonal values.  Studies like this and the two that follow were executed in a matter of a few minutes with no strict concern for precision.  My objective with any study is to express the raw idea before preconceptions get into the process and cause creative/expressive thinking to "tighten up."  In this first sketch I was exploring the idea of the figures in profile contrasted against the dark background of the barn.
