More Western art. Oil on canvas panel, 11×14″
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!
ok so that is a little bit of a cheat, but here are 3 small works in oil. Apple, 6 x 9, Tomatoes 8 x 10″, Chickadee 5 x 5″. Happy Summer!
Aim small, miss small. This painting is 5 x 7″, so as important what to leave out as to leave in. I am reading Carol Marine’s awesome book about daily painting, so maybe time to switch to a daily blog- yikes! This one went to a West Coast Collector this week – thanks!
I draw them, I paint them, I think about them. This is from a dream I had about them- Horse Dream, 20 x 24″ Oil on Canvas.
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. Surfer, 10 x 20” Acrylic on Canvas.
