this was a painting i did on my first day of evening oil painting class. i was so excited to be painting it’s evident in the intense brush strokes, deep colors, and happy subject.
done on a 24″ x 18″, canvas sheet, colors used are red, blue, yellow, and pink, the canvas i actually stuck together in order to texturize the paint. it’s a very heavy painting and i now know that if you use that much paint on something you should probably do it on stretched canvas because eventually the drying process will cause it to pucker.
