New Paintings…

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Hello everyone,

I’ve neglected my blog terribly for such a long, long time. There was just so much going on that, for a long time, the Blog just needed to move to the background. I have been painting and taking on portrait commissions though and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the kind folks who have supported and continue to support my work. I’m truly very grateful!

Here are five paintings that I have completed recently. They are all still available and, as before, shipping to the USA is free.

After these quail eggs were finished posing for the two paintings, I decided to fry instead of boil them, which is how they are usually cooked here in my country. They make the cutest sunny side up eggs!

Milk and Cookies Oil Painting

(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.75 x 5.5 inches β€” 14.5 x 14 cm

I am saving this painting for a second layer. I accidentally applied too much linseed oil on the board before I started painting so the paint became so liquid, it was very difficult to make some areas smooth and even.

I would like the teacup to look more translucent so I will give this painting a second layer. I am also trying to use my tube of phthalo blue more so I used it on the background here.

I have painted this teacup a few times before, and each time, the design on the cup changes. I haven’t really painted the original design as it appears on the cup, but the one in A Lemon and a Teacup is the closest.

Here are the other paintings featuring this teacup:

I had a late start on this painting and I spent over an hour thinking of what to paint. We had some mangoes around but I couldn’t find a composition for them. So I asked my brother David for help and he set this black mug against the mango.

I am posting two paintings today and both feature this black mug.

By the way, the painting fell face down as I was waiting for it to dry so I had to do a second layer to fix the damaged areas.

I’ve mentioned this before: porcelain is, for me, really one of the most difficult subjects to paint. This little teacup was no different.

On another note, I recently completed my portrait assignment for Different Strokes from Different Folks. It feels great to finish another portrait again — and an oil portrait at that! Visit my other blog, Art Studio, to read a little more about the painting. The direct link to the post is: Oil Portrait Painting.

Daily Painting #162 – A Lemon and a Teacup

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 7.5 inches β€” 14 x 19 cm
Private Collection

In the Cup of Chocolate painting I posted yesterday, I used just three colors plus white: burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and titanium white. For this painting, I substituted cadmium yellow lemon for the yellow ochre. I like how both turned out. I feel that using a very limited palette gives a painting an overall harmony.

Also, yesterday was the first day that I didn’t finish a painting. I did use my oil paints and worked on a new portrait though. If you’ve been following the Different Strokes from Different Folks blog, the latest challenge is the Year-End Portrait Swap. Ms. Jurick gave all participants photographs of other artists to paint from.

I started mine yesterday and am nearly finished with the underpainting. So far, so good. Below is a peek of what it looks so far.

I don’t really drink much of anything except water, but my Mom enjoys a cup of hot chocolate often. And because of that, I am dedicating this painting to her.

Another one inspired by daily painting #41. So far this is the most painterly that I have done. I kept blending to a minimum, especially in the foreground. I feel that it could have been done better, but I am quite pleased with the result. It was a fun painting and I learned that burnt sienna and yellow ochre is a good combination!

It’s nice to finally be able to find use for this baby mug! It actually has a pattern on the outside, but I left that out in the painting. I’m sure I’ll paint it again in the future and maybe I’ll include the design then to give it more character.

I’ve always had a hard time painting porcelain — it seems I always make them too dark and too gray. I had to scrape off my first attempt on the teacups and teapot because my Mom said they looked like steel! Well, more practice should do it. I think subtle shadows are the key.
