Miniature Painting – Untitled

Untitled Oil Painting

I received a whole bunch of free mini canvas panels from a friend. She no longer wanted them, and knew I painted miniatures. They included line art already printed on them. I don’t need the line art, so I covered the canvas panels with gesso.

The above painting was completed from a reference photo given to me by my sister. This is my interpretation of the actual location. This was painted on March 17, and is still shiny with a few brush hairs stuck to it. I’ll remove the brush hairs after it has dried. Too easy to smudge while still wet.

Afterglow 

My latest painting is an 8 x 10 inch acrylic on stretched canvas.

I used Liquitex acrylic paints for this one. Still my favorite brand for acrylic paints!

Planning a New Workshop 

Getting ready for my next wet-on-wet oil painting workshop. I painted this demonstration painting earlier today, and my students will be using it for reference when they paint their own version. I will be setting up workshop dates for June and July of 2017!

I Got A Rock

Remember when the Peanuts character, Charlie Brown, got a rock instead of candy while trick-or-treating?  Well, I got a rock…and I painted it! 

The gif image shows the steps of the painting process. The smooth stone was first primed with white gesso (3 layers), then painted with acrylic paints.  I sealed the water surface with gloss medium and will coat the rest of the rock with matte medium.  This should seal it sufficiently for an outdoor display. A very enjoyable painting experience!
