Autumn Willow and Pear Study

January 1, 2018

Autumn Willow – Oil on Canvas Panel – 8″ x 6″

Two more small oil paintings started as a resource for my Oil students. The willow tree is from a reference photo. The willow is at the entrance to Midway Village in Rockford. The pears were started to help my students understand methods for tackling folds in cloth. Both paintings were quickly requested by galleries for display (and sale – hopefully).

Sunspot Jr. and Pumpkin with Water Can

Sunspot Jr. – Oil on Canvas Panel – 6″ x 8″

One of the classes I conduct is for Studio Painting in Oil (and Acrylic). Trying to cater to my students interest, I aim to offer one landscape and one still life option at class each week. As if that is not enough strain for an instructor, I also have each scene started on small canvases to help my students visualize a looser beginning to their paintings. Once I get back into my studio, I like to complete the works for sale through my studio or by the galleries which represent my work.

Sunflowers in Coffee Pot

Sunflowers in Coffee Pot – Oil on Canvas Panel – 8″ x 6″

Started this as a lesson for my Saturday morning painters. I wanted them to see an example of using complimentary colors to make a painting “Pop”. Purple in the background and used in the shadow areas of the flowers help to tie the work together.
