OK so I'm still really enjoying my oils. I even love the smells! I never thought I'd be painting Florida subject matter but hey...why not? I'm loving the use of Phthalo Blues and Greens. Here are some small oils done on wood. The sizes range from 4x6 to 6x7, and up to 11x14. First I use wood gesso on the surface, sand the surface smooth and paint with Red Oxide or Burnt Sienna to give more depth to the images.
- Cathy and Bruce
- We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.
