Compliments, oil on canvas board, 16 x 20 inches
Well, I've definitely fallen off of the painting-a-day wagon already, but I am definitely ready to jump back on it. In my defense, though, I have been doing some painting of another kind-painting bead board paneling. Needless to say, not nearly as creative! Actually, very boring, time consuming and tedious. But, hopefully, it will be worth it when our game room/studio is finished. My kids don't know about the studio part yet, I'm going to sneak that into a corner when it's finished. The light in the room is great, so I can't wait to paint in there.
This latest painting is one that I started a while ago and never finished. As I was gathering my unused canvas boards, I came across this painting and realized that it needed a complimentary color in the background. So, I added that and carried the color throughout the painting to tie everything together. I also tried to make it more textural by not blending the paint too much when I placed it on the canvas. After many layers of paint, I finished up using a palette knife.
