Back to basics- figure drawing with charcoal. One piece of paper, one stick of charcoal, one eraser, a cloth. I had a discussion with a fellow artist, he said good drawing was not necessary for good painting. I am on the other side– work on drawing, make better paintings. Draw, draw, draw. Thanks for following all the way to week 100- whew! 18 x 24- “Athena”
He is Risen!! From His humble journey to saving all of Humankind…wishing you a Blessed Easter! -Katy
Ah, you thought it was a painting of the Mandarin, but it’s not. Spring is here and with the slew of comic events, I will be inspired to paint more figure/comic stuff. For now, here are some oranges. Eat one! they are a great source of antioxidants! Oil on canvas, 9 x 13″
Got busy and finished three this week, so the pressure is on for next week! Very different works. I am usually stuck when I am asked what style I paint in– I think if an artist has just one, she might consider branching out. So here are three.
“Etch” 24 x 36″, acrylic, alcohol and water on canvas
“Rise” 30 x 30, oil on canvas
“No fate but what we make” 18 x 24″ oil on canvas
Leaving some details undone, this one focuses on the Starkness…Winter is Coming.
Serene Winter sunrise on a path through the mountains. Feel the cold breath in your lungs, see the grasses clinging to life, the promise of the sunrise that Spring will come again.
11 x 14″ Fine oils on Canvas Panel
Sold this one this week! On its way to a new home! 24 x 48, Alaska Seascape
She really does. My goal was to paint a simple scene and this girl is messing with my chi! I will keep on working this one…as I have time and patience.
Recently sold: Horse Dream–many, many thanks, Grazie mille!! to this awesome collector!!!
ok that is just the working title.. square canvases are challenging, this one started out as a landscape and was a bit too empty. Now it is a horse painting, going to finish this up as soon as it sets up a little- I used a combination of gamsol and linseed, very nice result. More horses but looks a little like a gathering of ATATs, doesn’t it? 36 x 36″ my sneaker in the frame gives it some scale!
