Songbirds

Songbirds
36" x 12" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
The size of this canvas is perfect for birds perched up in a tree.  I painted this in a couple of hours, not sure how many birds would be sitting in the tree.  I started by toning the canvas, then drawing with willow charcoal stick, then with transparent orange and a filbert brush.  I brushed in pieces of color indicating the light peeking through the branches.  This canvas needs a frame...once it is dry I will take it to the frame shop and pick out a handsome moulding.  For now this painting needs to dry in the studio.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay

Double Trouble



Double Trouble
NFS
40" x 30"  Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
(Diptych size:  40" x 60")
This contemporary abstract was created to hang as one large piece, measuring 40" x 60", plus any wall space that might be in-between the two canvases.  With this commission, I concentrated on the color palette, and once I established my colors, put some shapes and movement on the canvas.  I used a large palette knife to apply the layers of oil colors.  The soft colors over-lap and blend into each other.  There is some texture on the surface, and you can see some choppy knife marks in the paint.  I did use impasto to get some body into the oil paints.  This painting is drying...and ready to hang!  Thanks for looking at this blog and the art posted.  Have a creative day.  Kay
