Coastal image size 6 1/2X8 oil on painted wc paper $50
This is the image shown with the painted paper. I took the photo on the floor which is the warm orange brown that you see along the edge.
The paper was treated with gesso and then there is a coat of gesso and a bit of acrylic paint which is where the warmth of the paper comes from. From there I have painted with oil and cold wax. The whole painting was done using a palette knife.
This piece is in a 10X10 Black Matt so that it will fit a standard size frame.
It's that time of the year when the intense colors disappear and all those beautiful blues and grey appear. This painting is done on Arches Oil painting paper made specifically for oil paint. It is lovely to paint on and makes it light for shipping.
Happy Thanksgiving to my friends south of the border. I hope its a time of good visits and of course good food.
Blue , 9X6" Acrylic and Watercolor on Watercolor Paper $35
I am working on many paintings at the same time. Some are very large 4 foot by 6 foot.
They take time so once in a while I think it is fun to take a break and do something a little more immediate. I've done a group of tree paintings using a variety of mediums - acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, and molding paste. My intention had been to make them into small cold wax paintings but I was having fun doing these flowing trees and stuck with that.
They will frame very nicely into a standard 8X10 frame if they have a mat around them.
I have a partner for this one posting tomorrow if you are wanting a pair.
