Class Demo - Brushstrokes, Neutrals and Color Harmony

7 1/4"w x 6 3/8"h | oil on canvas

This is a very quick experimental class demo on the subject of brushstrokes, and neutral colors. I'm starting from a chromatic gray, that I mixed from red, yellow and blue, and am adding saturated color to the gray. A kind of backwards approach from where we normally start with mixing paint on a palette. It gives a very harmonious look to the painting! I will be doing more of this! I read about this approach on Terry Miura's blog. He calls it, starting from "the center of the pie". This painting is only on a piece of canvas, no support or board under it. Because of this, the starting price is $50.

I am having a blast experimenting with new tools. New brushes from Rosemary Brushes, Ivory Flats with Rounded Edges. And a Kemper tool, that scrapes paint away beautifully.

My Mother's Copper Pot

6"x6" | oil on archival panel
This copper pot has sentimental value, it belonged to my mother. I have never painted copper before, so, like many of my small 6"x6" paintings, it was an experiment. I liked doing it! One of the things I liked about it, was composing the still life, I have always liked putting turquoise and orange objects together, one of my favorite color combinations.
This painting is part of the weekly painting challenge on Daily Paintworks, the challenge this week is copper.
