Stand of Pines - SOLD

Stand of Pines
Oil on Gessoed Watercolor Paper, 11.5" x 15.5"
SOLD at $12 plus $10 shipping.

This one is experimental, an oil done on watercolor paper.
I Gessoed the watercolor paper first, and it was good to paint on, not too absorbent, with a bit of texture still remaining, so I'm guessing that it will be okay, but I'm not sure how archival it might be. I'm pricing it as materials plus shipping.

I'm fairly happy with this one, the colors, and it doesn't look overworked.

This one was entirely experimental, trying to capture the feeling of hydrangeas, with loose watercolors. It didn't turn out as nicely as I had hoped, but if someone likes it... There is a touch of pastel here and there. The watercolor has possibilities,so I'll try this again.

The challenge this week in DPW (Daily Paintworks) is sunflowers, so I used the provided reference very loosely, and  swished a watercolor. My watercolor brushes are still buried in a box somewhere, but I had a few soft and clean oil brushes, so I used those.

A bigger piece today, and probably the last of the snow paintings. Outside it's gorgeous today, deep blue sky, lovely sunshine. But I had this one drawn out and ready to paint, so I went ahead. I think it turned out nicely.

Simple Serene - SOLD

Simple Serene

SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

It was time. My Elizabeth Tolley book had been missing for a long time, and of course, I didn't remember who I lent it to. But just before the move, it came back to me. I'd been itching to go thru a painting once again, to relearn her color mixes. I did not remember them all. Isn't this a sweet one? Using ET's steps and color mixes.
