Painting at the easel
I thought I would show you all where I work. I love seeing the studios of other artists so here is mine. I do most of my watercolor painting at this antique desk under the window. The desk has the perfect angled top for painting and the light is just wonderful. The chair is an old milking stool that has had a new seat cushion added to it. If I turn around from the painting desk is you will find my table easel where I do my acrylic painting. I am investing in a nice floor model this spring. To the left of the desk is a comfy chair which is usually occupied by my dogs.
The studio dogs! Tess the Border Collie and Joey the Lips, a red Doberman.
I am pretty much calling this one done! I need do a little more detail work around the eye and then I will varnish. I am including some close-up photos so you can see the brushwork on the legs.
This is measures 24 X 24, acrylic on triple primed hardboard. This is available for purchase..contact me if you are interested!
I have been working quite a bit in the studio lately. I found myself tending to the business side of being an artist and neglecting my painting time!
I am out of the ugly stage with this painting.It is taking me a bit longer than usual to get this done because I needed to get my Glory of Horses panel done. I spent a few hours on this today and now I have reached the point where I look at it for a few days and see where it needs to be tweaked. I do apologize for the awful photo! The flash has washed out the color in the mane and tail. Comments welcome!
