Mountains and Waterfall - SOLD

Mountains and Waterfall
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 11"
Another paint along class with Johannes Vloothuis this afternoon. I am pretty pleased with how this one came out, even though the demo was in pastels. It seems to have translated well into oils.

Single Magnolia - NA

Magnolia with Blue Shadow
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
Not available, revised on March 1, 2014

I know I said landscape today, but I did want to do one more magnolia, since I had some of the shade colors mixed. Waste not..., and all that.

My favorite part of this one is the shiny, waxy leaf. Go figure.

Hydrangeas Revised - SOLD

Hydrangeas Revised
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16"
I  liked this one well enough as it was, but since nobody spoke for it, I figured I had better play with it some more. I gave it more definition, and more "punch" or drama. I revised the leaves, and added sky. What do you think, better?

Here's the original:

See what I mean? Softer, more diffused. We'll see if folks respond better to the crisper version.

Oil Bottles

Oil Bottles
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
Available at $30 plus $8 shipping.

The Challenge this week at Daily Paintworks is to paint stroke by stroke, no fussing. The idea is to be aware of each stroke, and to try to match values as carefully as possible. It was a refreshing challenge, and I chose some oil bottles: grapeseed, toasted sesame, and olive. Fun stuff.

I picked up this stack of cups, saucers, and one lunch plate at Goodwill the other day, a find!
A great place to look for props for still life, but no pitchers this time.
