I finally took the time clean out my studio a bit so I could paint without having to maneuver around boxes and random art supplies!
I love oil paint. Isn't that pink the perfect bubble gum pink? Yum. It has been so nice to spend a few solid days working on painting - I feel like I've got my painting mojo back now that the sun is back.
This is the underpainting - a quick study of light and dark. I like to use a tinted canvas - it helps me to quickly lay out the light and dark areas, and forces me to build up thicker layers of paint.
I also really like this little table easel that I bought on a whim - it works really well for smaller paintings.
I think this stage of the painting is a bit creepy looking!
90% Finished - just have to wait for the paint to dry to go back in and 'fidget' with a few areas.
Lastly, the cats say HI!
Can you tell they are siblings?
