Brass Pot

10 x 8 Oil on Canvas Board Last year I was lucky enough to see a demo by David Leffel. I am total hooked on Chiaroscuro Style painting. "Chiaroscuro" literally means light/dark. In Chiaroscuro painting, your eye follows the light. The light gives the picture its flow-it takes the eye from one place to another, and the shadows structure the painting. Quoted from Oil Painting Secrets from a Master, by Linda Cateura.

Number 6

7" x 12" Ink on Yupo
This little abstract was done in Carole Fry's workshop.......lots of fun, but I hate YUPO! So I won't be working in that slippery stuff!!!! One needs to learn what they don't like.....it was truly a learning experience....... Carole's a great teacher and we had lots of fun......she does wonderful abstract colorful paintings......but I'll stay with watercolor and oil for now!
