As I find more time to create, I am getting back into oil painting. This is a piece I started a few years ago, and finally got back to working on, as I found it in a bin of unfinished works in my studio. It is about 20" x 20", canvas. While I am forming my imagery in sketching, I also enjoy the spontaneity of what happens on the canvas itself and then work on images from there as well. I printed a copy of this out and worked on it with colored pencil so I could see where I want it to go without overdoing the painting too much. (July, 2020)
My Dad sent me a picture of this Caribbean waterscape. Beautiful!! I am getting into drawing again and wanted to sketch this out to make into a watercolor. I really felt rusty doing the drawing! But, I persisted. It was fun to get back to my roots. While I love contemporary art, my abstract paintings all come from a source of learning the basic skills to draw! During the time staying at home due to COVID- 19, I think we all are getting back to basics!
