Playing around with composition. I love the idea of objects off the page and the principle is to have three edges being touched. But I didn’t do it in this case. Does it work?
I’m not quite sure if I’m crazy about painting on wood. This was a prepared surface with a canvas like texture. But I find it too smooth for my taste. Kinda have an interesting texture though.
Available for purchase in my Etsy store.
I enjoy painting nectarines. Their coloring is so similar to human skin so I see it as great practice for painting skins. Another goal I have is to challenge myself to paint the nectarines or fruits in general juicy as if the viewer is ready to pluck them off a tree.
These paintings will be available for sale in my Etsy shop.
I’m a fan of Pinterest. There I find all sort of inspirations and new artists that I would not normally come across. Right now I’m painting a dog portrait of my nephew’s bull dog. Such a charmer though lacking in the beauty category. To be inspired I went into Pinterest and found this painting by Sandra Flood. I love her simple yet elegant composition. Many of her paintings are like that; not too much background. She’s basically a self-taught artist. Here’s her website to explore more of her works on her website
Next week I’ll post some progression paintings of my nephew’s bull dog. . .
