|Returning to Kennels - 8x10 oil on MDF|
This past week I decided to spend a bit more time with the WM oils using small watercolour brushes on a smooth gessoed surface on MDF board. I am really liking the greater control I have with the combination. I no longer seem to be getting my self deep in oil muck and am more easily able to make corrections as required.
The hunt scene was part of our old life. The shapes and colours of horses, the coats ( men wear pinks and ladies black with blue collar) and the fall colours create opportunity for abstracting and I plan to do more and larger.
Heading back to Ontario for an early Christmas with family tomorrow - so I needed to work on a few Christmas presents.
Our nephew is playing in the Toronto production of Les Mis -5x7
Our grandson Jayden 5x7
Our grand daughter Maeve 5x7
Photos are off as I had already plus a finish on ( using Liquin as recommended by Doug Braithwaite and really liking it).
Good small brush exercises.
MDF Board is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my diary and commenting during a constructive manner, following on already! nice diary your have-I notably enjoyed your post on top of as I simply attended a Smash box event wherever the conjure artists all used brushes to use foundation giving a pretty mat and even finish!ReplyDelete
