My art blog... what's on my easel.... what going on in my weekly workshops with my mentor Heleni Shamai .... daily painting... sketches... digital stuff and photography...challenges ... the whole works....
My friend Neomi and I decided to try to paint after a demo given by Paul Taggart. We started it on one day and then finished on another so its not a one sitting painting. We really had a great time with this although any relationship to Paul's painting is purely coincidental...I love working with the split primary palette.
Prussian Blue and Ultramarine blue--Cadmium red and Alizarin crimson --- Cadmium yellow and Lemon yellow + white. We have lots to learn with color mixing... we hope to do the same subject again using impasto style.
After a long while that I haven't done much "daily" paintings I have decided that I HAVE to conquer my fear of doing oils at home on a small scale... even if it comes out a mess... So I started by going to the the weekend drawing events on wet canvas and did this small 20x20 cm cat from the wonderful references that DominicM gave for August 3rd.
Wet on wet is way out of my comfort zone.... used two main paints for my grays Ultramarine blue and raw umber... naples yellow for the eyes.
