I knew once September rolled around that it would become incredibly busy. Usually in a good way.
It's time to set up more still life groupings to carry me through the winter. So hopefully my next
paintings will reflect the coming season (my favourite).
This is, once again a small format oil on wood cradled panel measuring 6" x 6" x 1.5" deep.
When I started these small format paintings, I meant for them to be simpler with the emphasis on brushwork but I keep going back to trickier subject matter....ellipses for example. I do like teacups so they do end up in my paintings quite often. I'll post the painting when I'm sure I'm happy with the end result.
...and here is my painting Jax from the last post. Painted slightly larger than most of my recent work at 8" square. I may continue this size format for awhile. This painting is a little more loose from my previous painting and the size increase helped. One more painting of a dog before I go back to my usual subject matter. Now this next one may be more of a challenge as it is of a dalmatian who is no
longer around and either the spottiness will make it easier to paint or harder - I'll find out soon.
