Hello and welcome to my Blog.
My new oil paints arrived last week.
It is all change in my studio from
landscape palette to abstract.
No more earth colours for a while.
I want to make abstract paintings in brighter hues.
It isn’t always easy to change...I shall persevere.
It is easy to stay in a comfort zone
using the same ones every day.
I have had a canvas on the easel for some
time going through changes.
This means layering the oils scraping back
and reorganising shapes. I left it alone for a week
to think about where I wanted it to go.
The base colours are dark so it is time to go brighter.
This morning I used some of my new oils
mixed with some cold wax medium.
I think I shall let it dry and put it away for a while.
Here is the finished piece.
Oils and cold wax medium on canvas 24 x 36 inches
Another painting had a small change.
The lower middle part had some green added.
Oils on box canvas 30 x 30 inches.
Green has a calming influence.
The piece is finished now and is a
companion for the above work.
I like a series of paintings.
Here is a little one finished this morning.
‘All Change’ 14 x 16 inches
Oils and cold wax medium on panel and frame.
The painted frame is part of the work.
A good start to the week.
Until next Monday,
Thank you for visiting.
