|The Red Dress|
|The Perfect Coat|
These were two paintings I did in 2010 and thought it'd be fun to post them again. I may do some more of these, maybe larger. I think I've gotten better at oil painting after three years or more of practice. I've always drawn and painted with watercolors and acrylics but it wasn't until 2009 that I stared teaching myself how to oil paint. I've been studying everything I can get my hands on ever since. Now that I'm doing it full time I think all the practice has really. I would love to take a workshop with several well known artists, but it's not in my budget...at least not right now. Until then, my mentors are online and in the wonderful books I have. My favorite is Kevin Macpherson's "Fill Your Oil Painting with Light & Color", but there are so many other good ones and I learn a little bit from each and then incorporate what I've learn into my own style.
These two paintings are no longer available but I may be able to offer them as prints in my Etsy shop. Stay tuned for more!
