Visiting the National Gallery, London I decided to make this reproduction and keep it for my studio instead buying one from the museum shop.Reproduction - Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh - Oil painting on stretched cotton canvas 40 x 50 cm - George…
Thank you George for your comment on my Hare painting. I just love painting this creature. I have done another one and i will put it u... see what you think. Thought I might do a series of them. At present i am working on skies and coluds.. which has me pushed to the limits!
Thanks again and must mention that I really like your style of work. Lovely colour mixes.
Well, drat! I typed up a long message and did ??? and deleted it. So....thank you for your comment on my Rees Valley after RR. I did not buy the lesson, just jumped right in to try to learn how RR mixes and uses all those grays. I will keep attempting to conquer landscapes to the level that I want. lol
Hi George. I am glad you enjoyed my WIP video of The Otter Cliffs. I do think this was the hardest painting I ever attempted to do. Richard's was truly a master and his work is beyond my skill level to perfectly copy it. I do think I learned quite a lot in the attempt though.
Oh dear.........have to clean up after every painting session and put things away! Yikes.
We live in a motor home and my studio / computer station is the dining table that is MY SPOT. I have 4 paintings sitting on the dash leaning against the windshield so aid in drying, One painting WIP hanging above the bed from cabinets, one hanging on a rod going corner to corner in the shower and there are times I just want to look at my pretties so I get them out and put them all over the place! My husband is my biggest supporter!!!!!
I guess kicking the wife out is not an option (just kidding of course)..........but PLAN B is to find a bigger place to live so you have a closet you could turn into a studio and just shut the door when that painting day is over. grin Remembering our apartment days, we had one that had 2 huge walk in closets. Wala a studio. Oh well, one must just make do with what must happen. At least you do get to paint. smile
Thanks for the comment on my painting Morning Light. Did you notice below where I showed my Color Journal and the mixes "I could obtain" using those colors? I dont think I could have come up with all those pretty colors with out doing the mixes before hand to see what all I could get.
