Still Life Demo_14 x 11_CLICK TO BID


"Still Life Demo___14 x 11 oil on student canvas _____click to bid
Our lesson today at the Western Art Academy was all about edges. These young artists are all gifted and KNOW the basics (you ought to see the great compositions !). They have strong drawings and have taken a lot of care to get the big shapes of color into their objects...now they are "sculpting" the objects using more color and controlling the edges...here is the one I did as a demo...it's a good "example" of edges directing the eye through a composition...a nice painting, but not on my usual fine linen, so the auction is ON!!!
If you are in the neighborhood (Kerrville, TX) on next Saturday, August 2, please come to the Western Art Museum for a fantastic exhibit of art by the next generation of superstar painters! They will each have at least two original oil paintings on exhibit at the museum, and will be there to visit with you about their art and future! All the paintings are 18 x 24 or 16 x 20...
