Autumn, 8x8 Oil

SOLD
Conor's (my son) beautifully glazed bowl, a leaf found while walking Paco, and an apple - all remind me of this season. I love this support - it's Gessoboard, as opposed to yesterday's 'Martooni', which is on a canvas panel. For some reason I just love the paint sliding around on this smooth surface. How about you? What supports are your favorite? Pin It

  1. Very fall like, Kelley. I paint on gessoboard a lot using oil pastels and I love the surface.

  4. Love that juicy bowl and background. Great colors! I paint on Raymar panels and regular stretched canvas with lots of gesso to make it smooth.

  6. Wonderful painting Kelley and I love Gessoboard!!

    I got really lucky today when I went to the Apple store to ask questions about my Mac! The gentleman who helped me was a photography professor at the art school here in Columbus!! He told me I do need lights and a new camera because mine isn't cutting it if I want prints. I want a camera that is RAW capable.... yes... sister.... I spent over an hour with this man and my head is spinning!

  9. That plate is very tactile, one can pick it up and feel the smooth glaze. I work on commercial ready-stretched canvasses or canvas board. I find handmade cooton duck stretched canvas prepared with gesso is too heavy to be sent in the mail.

  10. The paint looks creamy and buttery - I love when a surface takes on this quality - looks great -

    I like to paint on masonite. . .

  12. This is a very "rich" painting. The hues and application of paint make it luscious.

  13. I love this, Kelley!

    The colors are fun and the composition is simple yet delightful.

    The thick brushstrokes are quite lively too!

    Wonderful!
