This painting is also in progress this week. It has been a week of touching up old oil paintings and starting new ones. This 18″ x 24″ painting began as a washy abstract that evolved into a floral painting that works well for my Garden Series. It is still under construction. I will post the finished piece soon.
Another Ocean Painting for my Ocean Series. This painting is 14″ x 18″ on linen board. It started out as an abstract using the colors in the sky. After building up texture through multiple layers of paint and working from all angles I found myself liking the colors as a sky and then of course the ocean came to mind. It is all about color and texture.
While on vacation I took a photo of a plate of donuts at the breakfast bar at the hotel. They looked wonderful in a delicious art form sort of way. When I came home I played with the photo in some iPhone apps. I do not have Photo Shop and I am afraid that if I did I would immerse myself in learning more about it-therefore using up painting time.
“Pink Donuts” was fun to create.
Today I think I am finished with this painting of Buster. I have decided to tone down the orange collar after I saw this photo. This is a large oil painting at 36″ x 36″. If you scroll down you will see photos of the beginning process of this painting. It has been to a joy to paint Buster. I have completed paintings of Buster in Acrylic, Watercolor and Oil.
