Tim Ellmers, Artist
One picture; three paintings; three different mediums & surfaces
I was up in Paducah, Kentucky with my Father-in-law over the 2017 Thanksgiving holiday where I joined several farming families in making sausage. This was my 3rd trip out to JW’s Farm. While we were waiting for the hogs to arrive, I walked around and snapped some photos. One of the photos was of the soybean silos. In tackling this project, I decided to try the same painting but with different mediums and different surfaces.
In completing this painting I decided to complete it three ways:
Acrylic on Canvas
Watercolor on paper
Oil on Panel
Each form of medium requires a different way to approach in starting. So lots of thought had to go into figuring out the appropriate layers. This was my first watercolor since I was in like elementary school so here’s to more practice.
