"Into the Light" --- SOLD



I wiped a couple of these before I switched from canvas to gessoboard. I find it's easier to keep the colors from getting muddy on this smoother surface, and that's exactly what I needed with the subtle yellows.

You've captured a lovely glow in the petals in this one.

I had to stop by and say thanks for sharing so much about what you do! My husband built a still life box similar to yours for me so that I could try painting still lifes. I wouldn't have known what to ask him for if I hadn't read your FAQ.

Now I know why you paint these little ones every day, they are a blast to paint (not to mention that I can finish one during my son's nap time)!

Love it! Much, much better that your first study.

Ann Reyes said...

Congratulations Carol!!! I just read the Southwest Art article about you and your paintings. How wonderful!

Any chance you might expound on why the gesso board surface helps you keep things from becoming muddy?

I can't make it to Jacksonville to find out, but I'd love to hear more.
