A "For Fun " project!
oil on canvas 12" x 18"
| I am Finishing head details on right cormorant|
This is many weeks later , with much more detail--almost done now
| This is two days into a study of Albrecht Durer's "Cowslip". Painting from a master's work is|
something I have never done, yet at one time this is how artists learned to paint...so here we go!
The kitchen table becomes such a happy place!
This is the acrylic base layer. In the end I changed the shape of the bud so it was not pointed.
|These are my paint colors for this project. Even though much is now dry, I can still figure out what colors I used to mix other colors, which is really helpful as time goes on. I will save this even though I start on a new pallet sheet.|
|This is a fox painting inspired by Bruno Liljifors, who painted in the early 1900's|
|This is a small piece which depicts native American stones I found in the river|
and a landscape of the river area
|This is my pet garden toad Stella, who lived in a lovely large pond I had made in the yard|
|This is a Spanish Luna Moth. I was not so pleased with the background and will no doubt try this again. The luna moths are all exquisitely beautiful|
|This is a little broccoli Sprite I made, thinking in terms of doing a set of vegetable sprites|
