It took some time, but my Etsy shop is now well stocked with tiny paintings! :-). Please take a look and share, like, pin, tweet, enjoy. A warm thanks to you.
Documenting my next commission painting. View from a Window. Oil on canvas, 30″ x 48″ (about two-thirds of a doorway). Mediocre photography by me :-P.
The lines are completely straight, I promise, though they look bowed and tilted in the photo. I finished it and sent it to its new home a few weeks ago.
Preliminary watercolor sketches:
Distance is already a challenge for me. In fact, that landscape a couple posts ago was a bit of distance-practice while working on this commission. Gonna keep trying :).
Calling it finished. I added more detail in the foreground, amongst the shrubberies, and glazed over the darker areas with some alizarin crimson. I tried to build up a simple foreground/mid-ground/background, but they’re not as distinct from each other as I would like. Have a look at the previous post for in progress photos. I welcome all the feedback :).
Lately I’ve been getting requests for landscape paintings, but they’re tough for me. Conveying distance and deep space isn’t easy. Time to practice. Here are some in-progress photos of my current attempt. It’s not yet finished; I’ll post the final version soon. -oil on canvas.
