This painting has seen many revisions and I think that I am now satisfied. I am still using the 3 color palette...but to vary the reds I used Quinacridone Red. I like the true reds and the darker reds that I could get. I also used a bit of Permanent Green Light to get a true green. Those are two of the colors that I have the most trouble getting exactly what I want. Maybe I am just not mixing correctly.
I love the roses in this painting....they are a luscious color. Still using the 3 color palette and becoming more comfortable with it each time I paint. This was a still life that I painted from life. This little oil painting is 10"x 8" on a stretched cotton canvas. When dry it will be for sale in my Etsy shop.
I felt that working more on this painting seemed like a good idea. I used the 3 color palette with the addition of Quinacridone Magenta which allows me to achieve the red violets and blue violets that I like so much.
This is a commission that is long overdue. I used the 8"x 6" gessobord as a support. I also used the 3 color palette that I have been working with and just love it......I love Molly's ears and her sweet face. I also worked on edges after reading the FB post today. This was shot from my phone and I will reshoot tomorrow with my camera.
This is a large landscape painting which measures 24"X 36" on medium weight stretcher bars. I enjoyed working on this painting...I did work from a photograph that I took. I am still working with the 3 color palette and learning to love it.
I have been working on this abstract for many months and it was just not going anywhere. But, today I felt inspired to work on it. I feel that the direction is good and one that I have been seeking. Once again I will say that I am not sure of the primary colors that I am using...although I am trying to persevere. Leave comment please and tell me what your reaction is...it would appreciate it so much.
I know that this is a little early, but I had done this painting some time ago and felt that it wasn't any good...so today I wanted to try again with what I have been learning. Yes, I am working with the Primary colors that I will be using in the upcoming workshop. I am beginning to gain a love for them...the only thing that I miss are the red violets and blue violets....but I may learn to mix them with more practice. By the way the colors are Cadmium Lemon, Ultramarine Blue, and Vermillion. That is it other than a Titanium White. Pretty fun really...:)
I am thinking about this one.....Ahhhhhh now I am happy....I have learned tons. I still am a little iffy about the 3 colors...but I am going to persevere and see if I can learn to love them. I am taking a workshop in about 6 weeks with James Richards from Georgia and these are the colors I will be working with. So I just want to practice.
