The Artist's Tools


Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I had this painting in mind for a couple of weeks. Then last saturday, I saw the DailyPaintworks challenge was to "paint what you paint with". Perfect timing for me. This painting is a bit looser and that is what I love about it. I think if I tried to paint every detail and make it really tight, I would have lost all of the drama.

First, I thought "gee, he sure has short brushes!" but I just woke up....
Now I get it. 'Like all those amber/citrine colors in the medium's bottle.

Just started following you, as a fellow artist with a blog I feel I can learn from your work and posts. I really like the buildup in your paintings. I love to see other artists supplies, I am a huge nerd in that I get excited by just seeing brushes, paints and pencils.
