Hi & Welcome Marina!
I have just found you and looked through your lovely gallery. Rather than comment on each individual work, I though I would just say how much I enjoyed the way you portray light in your paintings against those lovely lively darks you use. Thank you for sharing your work with us. :-))
Good morning, I saw your comment to RR about English being your second language. I want to assure you that you speak English very well, and even if you did not it would not matter! I have a French speaking friend on another site who uses a translation program. That makes English a little strange, but we still can communicate well enough to have become good friends. I already told this story to some one recently. Hope it was not you. he he Ro
I dont have a crimson red. Which Cad Y? I have cad Y light, med, dark. You method produces beautiful results. I need to be bold and try something a little "wild" just to see what it will do. fun
Ro /// I will have to think about my colors (I have a zillion) and try something. /// Oh, you did not mention what sizes your paintings are. // We are just going into fall here. Do you know where New Mexico, USA is?
Marina, there are never dumb questions.......you can ask me anything! // Friends....you can chat back and forth and not ask people to be your friend. I tend to ask people that I am impressed with their art because I think they are better than me and I want to keep track and maybe learn something. I find that I can "find" the person again if they are on my friends list and I want to share something with them that I just found out. -- Sites such as this are totally so you can interact so do not feel like you would intrude, get involved and make friends. // If you see a painting on the PHOTOS gallery, just click on it and when it gets bigger, there will be a place to leave comments. // I will always have and take time to visit with YOU! he he // Would you mind sharing how you prepare the canvas with deep color and texture.? I love the effect. Ro
Your picture immediately caught my eye because I saw "Bloemfontein"! I am an old Kovsie and went back last year for a solo exhibition at Liedjiesbos. Good good memories of the Free State. Thanks for the advise on the blogs - will do so.
It is nice to have another South African on this sight. I love your work, it’s true South African and a joy to look at.
Be sure to go to Blogs there is always something to learn especially from Richard him self
I hope you will enjoy this sight as much as I do.
