Carnation, 6x6 Inches, Oil

SOLD

Last week at the workshop in my studio this was one of the demo's.  First we painted the image as a value study.  Then we matched the colors we applied to the values of the study.  Good to do, as it keeps you on track in terms of values.  If your values (lights and darks) are off, the painting will not have the punch you hope it will.

I don't know about you, artist friends, but I am very excited about Wednesday's Artists Helping Artists Blogtalk Radio Show at noon, EST.  Carol and David Marine have an exciting announcement.  Hopefully while I am listening I will finally paint my Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge - nothing like waiting till the last minute!!!

  1. What a pretty piece, Kelley! Wish I could hear the blogtalk show. Alas, I'm at work on the noon hour. Anyway, no surprise that this lovely work sold.

  2. Thank you so much! One wonderful thing about Artists Helping Artists is that they become podcasts (free) that you can listen to from your computer later or download to an iPod, etc.
