A Lady in Red

This beautiful Vase has such a feminine elegance and the Red Color makes it more so (Red is the color of a bride in the south east asian culture).  I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I had painting it.

Size: 5″ x 7″

 

If you are new to Water Soluble Oil, I would very strongly recommend Holbein. It actually dilutes with water without becoming tacky. I had such a fight with Artisan. MAX is much better than Artisan, but Hobein reigns supreme. If you are into Alla Prima then Holbein is the way to go… for sure.

Bottle & Oranges

Thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent 4 hours today in completing this painting.  For those with discerning eyes,… It is the bottle that is small (grape juice) and not the oranges, that look rather large compared to the bottle. (The bottle is Short and Stout as well).

Size: 6″ x 6″;   Time Taken: 4 hours

Cherry Blossoms

I am on a low palette diet.  I have banished all the colors, from my palette, except for Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow light and Titanium White.  (i.e. the primaries and white). I will continue with this limited palette for a while.

I used the above limited palette to do the painting below.  The Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom at our house (I think they are Cherry Blossom).  They were calling out to me, to be painted and I was drawn to them.  So here it is.
