Kind of an awkward title I know but pretty much describes this post. First up, palette. I worked on the white table cloth in the painting this particular morning and thought it would be interesting to see what goes into the white in this particular painting. I mentioned on the previous post that I had read about a technique I wanted to try in the A History of American Tonalism: 1880-1920. I am not sure if this is a good place to use it but I wanted to try it. It involves laying down a warm undertone and painting a cool complimentary color into it. I tried that on the white cloth. I am not sure I like it here but it isn't so bad that I will take it out. Here is the painting still in progress:

Finally, the "changes in the wind". I am sure many, if not all, of you have heard of Pinterest, both the controversy and the excitement of using it. I will be joining in the next day or two in spite of a few reservations but, I had a bit of work to do. I went through my website and Facebook page and put copyright text either on the picture, in the title description, or both. I really didn't want to put a watermark of sorts on my pictures as I feel it can be distracting but I feel at this time it is the prudent thing to do. I don't mind having my work shared or "pinned" at all but I do want the proper credit! Not everyone is aware of giving the proper credit, although they should be. I always do my best to credit and provide links back to the original source too. It takes a tiny bit more time but I feel it is the right and respectful thing to do.
I would love to hear what you all think of the whole Pinterest thing. Please do leave a comment and let me know what you think. The best information I have read so far has been on a recent post (3/2/12) from Alyson B. Stanfield's Art Biz Blog. Click on the link and take a look for yourself!
Oh! I just noticed my wee skeleton model peeking through the easel in the top photo. Do you see him?
