Stages of Art Creation
Stage 1Establish the big shapes of light and dark, warm and cool.
Stage 2Breaking into smaller shapes, establishing better values and putting more power into the darks.
Stage 3Establish the figures and reinforce the contrast between the dark figures and the lighter background.
Stage 4Refine the figures and I look to smaller pieces, shapes in the building.
Stage 5I decide to paint out the bicycles in the front. More attention to the tables and chairs.
Stage 6General refinement to the buildings at rear as well as to the left corner of the front building.

Paintertainment 2011 – The Process
Stage 1Stage one of the painting was created live in front of an audience at Paintertainment 2011This is how the painting looked at the end of the night.
Stage 2Over the next few weeks the painting would be refined.
I try out the idea of adding a dog and some cattle.
Stage 3I add in the bridge and refined details on the house.
I have moved the fence close & the cattle further away.
Stage 4I am now bringing focus to the main element of the painting which is the farmer, his team and the dog.
By deciding on the strength of the main elements I can begin adjusting the strength of the secondary players
