Weekly Painting Week 93 Black, White, and Grey

Working on a few possibilities in oil using only Black, White, and Gamblin Torrit Grey. I am carving the horses out of the darkness. Those lumps on the beach may turn into dogs… or maybe a lobster, I haven’t decided.

Weekly Painting Week 88- Hey Betty! Surfer Girl

Summer is coming! I love how the color of the ocean is changing in the brighter light of Spring- more blue, less grey.  Completed this painting this week on a gesso board in a wood cradle- very stiff to paint on, but very smooth and glossy finish. Hey Betty! 8 x 10″ acrylic on board on cradled wood support.

Weekly Painting Week 83- Surfer in a Wave

My Dad asked me this week, “How do you paint this (a seascape)? Do you draw it first? Do you work from top to bottom?  One of the best teachers I had told us to work out all the details in a small drawing. Then work on a large drawing. Then start all over and by the time you paint so many of the details are illuminated that it just flows into a painting. And the seascape, that’s top to bottom, back to front.
