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.

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’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.

A Lemon and a Teacup - Oil Painting

Daily Painting #162 – A Lemon and a Teacup
(Click image for larger version)

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.

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!

Tea and Lychee - Daily Painting

Daily Painting #26 – Tea and Lychee
(Click image for larger version)

Oil on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches β€” 13 x 18 cm

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.

(Click image for larger version)

More of the little chili peppers from yesterday. My Mom and I bought 5 of these just to paint. Although I am not a big fan of chili peppers in my food, I’ve always enjoyed just looking at them. When we had homegrown chili peppers, I used to sketch them quite often.

This is also my first time to try a square format for the daily paintings. All my previous daily paintings had been on 5″ x 7″ board.
