Roses: Searching for Simple - SOLD

Rose One
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

Although I like this one, I decided it's just to complicated for my students. They are all beginners, so...

Rose Two
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

I think this one might work for them, just one color, with some white, and some blending. I think I will tell them to do a darker background though. I may still change this one. Maybe a nice cool grey-blue.

Dog Creek - SOLD


Dog Creek
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $55 plus $10 shipping.

I've been meaning to revise the 'Creek" painting that I did with a palette knife, since it wasn't quite singing.
I'm much happier with it now, and I've also dropped the price. This is a decent sized piece at a reasonable price.

Oil on GW Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10' x 1.5"
SOLD at $40 plus $7 shipping.

This one will not need a frame, as it is painted all around top, sides and bottom.

Peachy Rose - SOLD


Peachy Rose
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

Okay, so roses are tough, probably because they are so complex. My students requested "roses" for next week's lesson, and I figured I'd start early to practice. If  I can do something in oils, I can make the switch to acrylics, and figure out a lesson for them. This one isn't entirely successful, but it has some appeal.

Acrylics Lesson Available

Distant Farm
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.


Dappled Path
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

These are two paintings I am showing as step-by-step exercises in the finished Mini-Lesson on Acrylics.
The lesson is now available (finished it today, along with the two exemplar paintings) at $20, and will be sent to you in three emails. It turned out to be 17 pages long, so I split it into three parts. It gives some basics about using acrylics, at least some of what I've learned so far, and the shows the progress of these two paintings in stages, with color notations and simple instructions.

Send an email to me if you want a copy of the lesson, or either of the two paintings..
