Warmth

Warmth: 20" x 16" oil painting on wrapped canvas $500

It's cold here in my part of the world so I needed to inject a bit of warmth this holiday season, I haven't had much time to paint until the last few days, nice to get back to the easel, I hadn't painted in about 2 weeks and I was surprised how rusty I had had gotten, found it really had to focus for a while, but I slowly kept at it.

For more details on this or any of my other paintings visit my etsy shop

Enjoy,

Blue glass

Blue glass: original still life painting oil on 20" x 16" canvas $500


For most of my work I tend to stick with more earth tones but there is something about dark coloured glass I love to paint. I decided to use a lot of transparency in the background to allow my initial drawing to show through, which is something I am doing more and more, just love the look.

Available at my etsy shop here please visit for more details.

Enjoy,

Blue glass wip


 Here is what is on my easel today, started this yesterday afternoon,  and it's coming along nicely, I decided to allow a lot of the under painting to show through, I didn't post the latest version but my block in is finished, which is a good thing as I won't be able to get back to this until tomorrow evening, I have a few issues with my drawing but should be an easy fix later on.

Enjoy,
Dave

Orange and decanter

Orange and decanter: Oil on wrapped canvas 18" x 24"

This painting started out a little different, my main focus was actually going to be something else but mid way through I realized it wasn't going to work out so I had to change my plan. That's the way it goes sometimes, Normally I would consider moving on but glad I stuck with it. This painting turned out OK and was a great learning experience.

Painting comes unframed, varnished and with hanging hardware attached, please allow 2 to 3 weeks from date of posting for painting to dry to the touch and have varnished applied. Visit my Etsy shop for more details

Enjoy,
Dave
