More mixed weather today, sun in the morning, overcast in the afternoon. I have two images by Camille, one for me. I only kept one as I spent the morning doing several starts, wiping off each start as I went.
Here’s her first start in the morning:
Here’s the near finish…she said she’d adjust a few areas, but it’s close and again shows you how she transitions paintings. Note the dark warm shadows in the foreground trees, the high intensity warms in the sky (that she later tones down to read as blue); and feeling of atmosphere she creates.
She then painted this study in the afternoon, with overcast light. See the difference?
And finally, here’s the only painting I finished today, the “Old School” (now shops). I don’t think the light key is as accurate as I’d like, but it reads well, and that roof was a blast to paint!

Nice painting, Ed! Cool light, warm shadows. I can see Camille’s influence.
I like how you’ve used Camille’s techniques but still managed to maintain some of the local color of this scene – that roof looks like it was fun to paint! I know Camille is a colorist and as such isn’t too concerned with the local color of a scene, but I’m a bit disappointed in these studies of hers – they just don’t look at all like Hawaii to me – she might as well be back in California, you know? They’re still beautiful paintings though – I guess I’m just being cantankerous today =)
Really interesting to see the process unfold. Thanks for sharing your experiences, Ed. Nice job on your piece. That green roof is luscious!
I really like it Ed. The color harmony is great. Green nicely balanced by red.
The old Hanalei school is great! I love the cool vs. warm greens in the roof.
