I am taking a painting class at the Winslow Art Center on Bainbridge Island on Tuesday and enjoy the camaraderie of other artists and learning to paint small. We paint from small photographs on to 8 x 10 inch or 9 x 12-inch canvases. This was my painting from the first day of class.
The teacher David Marty asked us to do a homework assignment, and I just finished mine.
This another 8 x 10-inch painting. I find it interesting as I usually do paint in a much larger format, but am finding this satisfying for some reason.
Normally I paint abstracts in larger formats. The one below is 36″ x 24″ and as you can see, it is very different from my smaller ones.
This one is 30 x 48 inches with black, gray, and gold leaf interspersed in other colors. I was looking at in the studio and think it is the perfect Halloween painting. Look at the “evil” eye of the predator on the right side of the painting. This guy is watching you, and it was totally an accident.
Just thought I would share something other than food art and interior design. I am doing a 3 x 5-foot commission right now and love the big scale of it.
