Latest Paintings Update
Latest portrait painting I am calling “Mug Shot”. Did this in Bob Gerbracht’s class. I am learning a lot from him. He has classes Monday thru Wednesday in the evening. For more info on the class, look him up on the internet: www.bobgerbracht.com,or shoot me an email.
Yet, another still life of fruits and vegetables. I am really starting to dial in the colors. Great exercise for mixing paints. This time, I went for a real forced compostion. Yes, I put them in a circle on purpose. It was a small square canvas- 8×8 inches.
I am posting this one too, but I am not too proud of it. Its a big canvas (for me that is): 32×20 inches. I worked from a photo. I think the main problem is that the colors are too strong (green is the hardest color for me), and I should have made it more abstract. I tried all kinds of technique in this one painting: I dabbed, dry brushed, made grids, went thick and thin…(if you click to see the larger image, you will see all the different brush strokes). It would look good as a “Snow White” backdrop ;-)
