They're Up To Something
6 X 8 inch Oil Painting on Raymar linen panel.
$140 (Shipping $12 in the U.S.)
The challenge for me in this one was to capture the transparent quality of the onionskin. Instead of a dramatic shift from mid-tone to highlight with these, there was a slow transition between the two, which helped convey the feeling of transparency.
This is another painting that started out with a black-toned panel. I’ve really enjoyed painting on black because it instantly creates drama, which is exciting.
Also, I've been tagged 2 times this month and have yet to get to that task. So, I'm sorry Dana Cooper and Christine Mercer-Vernon, if I have time I'll join in the fun. Thanks for thinking of me!
