Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I used the Gamblin palettes for these paintings to explore what the individual colors do, how to move from tonal painting into using color without the use of black and then on to the Modern colors- color for color's sake. I used the same main subject-the hawk-but rotated the figure around from profile to front view to the back for takeoff in the last piece. The size for all three is 16 x 20" oil on board. Int he Gamblin Artists Colors I also mixed them with the FastMatte oils to see how they work together-this was a first in combining them for me and I really like the results. This was a great project for me!

Please visit "Atelier NAN" (FB) page to see the albums I have created as I have been painting this series. I found it helpful to view small segments at a time of the Scott Gellatly tutorial. That way I could paint the next layer of ideas and think about how to use the individual palettes in a slower way to absorb the information more fully.

Hi Scott, I was painting the cherry trees today along the waterfront park. Thanks for the tip about Titan. ZINC whiteI love the way it flows and mixes with there paints including the FastMatte. I am also using the radiant white. They are both perfect for the cherry blossomsnancy
