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.
Blaze of Glory (2 x 3 inches; watercolor & ink)
This miniature painting was completed with watercolors and ink.
A short video demonstration can be viewed here…
My first painting of 2018 and my first painting in 3 months. Feeling a bit rusty today, but it sure was nice getting outside and painting! This scene is located in Bonne Terre, Missouri at Lakeview Park.
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!
Reflect (2.5 x 3.5 inches; watercolor)
My latest painting!
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!
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!
Redbud Lake (5 x 7 inches; oil)
Completed another oil painting today. I need to complete at least one more for my art booth at an upcoming community festival. The paintings that feature redbud trees have been very popular.
Worked on this miniature oil painting yesterday before retiring for the evening. The canvas is only 2 x 2 inches.
