Oil Painting Techniques and key to success II
Oil Painting Techniques and key to success. Wow..hate to follow that last post because my friend Kim is incredible awesome at what she does with painting. But it sparked me to share my journey here as well, with Oil Painting Techniques and key to success.
Here’s a collage of my journey the past years. This was 2007, my first paintings of horses I take my own photos, these were from the world’s oldest rodeo in Prescott, AZ. Now, it took 7 years just to get to this point, and it was finally here I landed my Aspen Galleries, with these first works that sold.
2008. Great photoshoot for these horses in get-up for this commission piece in Wickenburg, AZ. It also won first place in the annual festival, Wickenburg Days.
2009, more confident in lighting and brushwork…feeling…really hungry to incorporate more colors into the tans, and backgrounds…
the following here is all 2010 to present…I really wanted to expand into more colors, but also various techniques of what I could do on canvas, began incorporating watercolor for transparency, depth of color, feeling and mood. Playing with ways to share animals, like the lion and tiger, for example, but not render them in a traditional way with technique and color palette. It was here I understood you can keep the animal’s essence – but totally be FREE, artistically.
To your Prosperity!
