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.

Here’s something different from the usual detailed and realistic paintings — one in an “impressionistic” style. While I’d call this going outside the comfort zone, I actually did little planning and tried to be very relaxed and free. In reality, the roses and leaves have some texture because of the thicker paint that I used but the scan doesn’t show it very well.

I’m not sure I’ll be doing more of this kind of painting anytime soon, but it is good to try something different once in a while.

We bought a small bouquet of these little rosebuds a while back. I kept painting them until they wilted and lost their shape, so I will be posting rose paintings for a few days.

Here’s the last rose painting for now. The reference picture for this one was also from the WetCanvas Image Library by indomum.

Below are the three previous rose paintings. I think this last one is my favorite of all though.

I missed posting a daily painting for the second time yesterday as I wasn’t able to use our computer. Anyway, the two paintings that I will post today are part of the series of roses with black backgrounds. This first one was based on a photo by Gypsytoo from the WetCanvas Image Library. I am doing these rose paintings in preparation for a much bigger oil painting of a flower arrangement that I will be doing soon.

I will post the other rose painting in a little while. Stay tuned!

Personally, I think flowers and figures are the most difficult subjects to paint well. The challenging part of this painting was to get the rose to look realistic and not look like plastic. There’s a bit more texture to the petals than what the scan shows and, I think, it’s that texture that makes the rose look more real. This painting was based on a photograph by WetCanvas Image Library contributor maltman.

By the way, I am not fully back to the bigger paintings yet. I still have one more ACEO painting to post tomorrow and then I’m back to the regular sizes like this one.
