Orange on Black

Orange on Black: Oil on 11" x14" wrapped linen. $350

I love painting on linen, this painting of course is all about the orange, saw it in the fridge, caught my eye as it seemed to glow, of all the time I have spent in front of the easel, oranges haven't been a subject I like to paint but being fall, I guess I just needed some warm colours to warm me up a bit and of course this time of year the sun starts to go down by mid-afternoon, so I really need it.

Had a great day in front of my easel yesterday. Started this painting in the morning, painting went according to plan for a change, I had a few little tweaks to do today, Just minor stuff. I stopped by the local thrift store yesterday and picked up some great props, the Urn was one of them. People donate some great stuff here in town.

Green vase and plums

Green vase and plums: Oil on 11" x 14" wrapped canvas $350

I bought these plums more then 4 weeks ago and totally forgot about them, came across them while looking for something to munch on, a bit past their ripeness but still good enough to paint. I have been really happy with my progress of late, rediscovering some of my secondary oil colours, been experimenting with Phthalo blue and transparent oxide yellow from Cobra,  like it's name it's so transparent and Phthalo blue is so strong so much fun to play around with.
