I ended up reworking a painting that I I thought I finished in January... It happens sometimes... Every time I worked into the studio I thought to myself that I could improve on that one eagle....Today, I was finally brave enough to touch it :)
Here is the finished floral painting that I have been working since last weekend...This one was incredibly hard to photograph. No matter how hard I tried I could not do the depth and texture of this painting Justice.
"PEONIES" 18 x 18 Acrylics on Stretched Canvas
This painting is varnished with a glossy varnish for an additional WOW factor.
I had a very productive weekend in the studio. Was able to finish a larger painting that will be donated to SAFE Haven for Cats, to be auctioned of at their Tuxedo Cat Ball Fundraiser. In addition, a second painting is currently on the easel and you can see the WIP photos below.
"TURBULENCE" 16x20 Oil on Stretched Canvas
Not for Sale
ThisWIP painting has some really great texture on the canvas and is progression quite nicely. I anticipate that it will take me maybe one more sitting to complete it. Sorry for the poor photo quality - Once it's complete, I will take a proper photo :)
"To be Named" 20x24 Oil on Stretched Canvas
Not for Sale
I was also in a mood to prime couple more 20x20 canvases...I used heavy texture and some nice layers of acrylic paint. Not sure yet what I will use them for...Maybe some abstracts?
