6 new studio paintings

I have 6 new studio paintings to share. The first four were painted while attending a workshop at Scottsdale Artists School. 

These have all been painted with a limited palette of Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, and Phthalo Green, with the exception of "Catching Waves", which I painted using only Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, and Ultramarine Blue.

I've also been experimenting with a new medium. It's a mixture of Galkyd, Gamsol, and linseed oil. I've been liking the working properties so far. More linseed oil will slow the drying time. It gets a little tacky after a short while, allowing me to apply several layers in one painting session. However it stays wet for a day or two, so I can still have time to go back and soften edges.

  1. You are REALLY good. People like to know the price and make it easy to buy. Do you know how to set up a simple Paypal Buy Button under each painting? I was on your FB page, your website and now here. I can't afford your paintings myself, but you are too good not to be selling each and every one immediately upon posting. Make it easier for the buyer!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Elizabeth. I really do need to set up a Paypal buy button. That's a great idea. One of the projects on my chopping block is to revamp my website, so I'll definitely try to make buying pieces easier! I'm currently juggling between painting and two jobs, which makes dedicating time to art a little difficult.

      Thanks again! Best,
