Bluebell Forest (2017), 22 x 28 in.


Here is the finished painting!  You may have recognized this painting as similar to one I completed in the past. The clients who commissioned this painting fell in love with a bluebell forest painting I completed in 2010. They, however, wanted theirs to be much larger in size. The final painting has a bit more detail than the original, but contains the same composition and color scheme. Because of it's large size, I did more layering of the paint than with the original painting, which was only 8 x 10 in. and completed in a single sitting. In order to make sure I covered the entire canvas with paint, and no white showed through, I painted an underlayer over the whole canvas and then added a second layer where I applied the paint in thick textural daubs.

New Commission Painting Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak peek of a new commission I am working on. The painting is finished, but I will wait to post a full pic until the new owners take it home.  For now, here are some close-ups of the brush work.
