oil 10x8 inches
I haven't been knocking out a painting a day, or posting every day for quite a while now. I enjoy the bit larger sizes, taking my time and putting more thought into what I choose to paint. A line from Richard Schmid's book, Alla Prima
has been in my mind: "Slow down and savor what you are doing."
Love your Paddington! Brings back memories of my childhood! And I totally relate to what you're going through, regarding slowing down and thinking about what to paint. I'm starting to feel like it isn't enough just to paint to get better, but to also question why I want to paint something...maybe it's just the next step in the process...?ReplyDelete
Keep exploring your subjects that speak to you, this is certainly a winner! Dynamite painting! The edge work is especially well done.
Yours in art,
this is wonderful! I love it! And I too am working in a variety of sizes more often- that's a great reminder from Schmid...thanksReplyDelete
What a beauty. Among the many beautiful characteristics, I love the textures and the play of lights and shadows. :)ReplyDelete
Lovely! I love everything especially the fur!ReplyDelete
Wonderful! I love all the textures!ReplyDelete
Beautifully painted. It is obvious that you enjoyed working on this one.ReplyDelete
He's cute! Wonder what you tinted your canvas with.ReplyDelete
Helene, I think it was transparent red oxide or burnt umber, or a mixture of both.ReplyDelete
He is soooooo cute. A beautiful job I say....ReplyDelete
