Framed Oil Painting & Prints of Dixie & Hachiko

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Yesterday I went to collect the three framed pictures of Dixie & Hachiko. One is the original painting and the other two are Fine Art Prints out of the original. We decided to use a deep moulding which suited this one perfectly. Now I will have allot of work with packaging all portraits and prints which will soon be on the way to both USA and Russia.

Second Stage of Pharaoh Dogs

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Naturally I have also been painting on the large Pharaoh dog painting. But nothing is completed yet, not even the background. I’m using a very limited palette for this one: Titanium White, French Ultramarine, Indigo, Cadmium Red light, Cadmium Yellow Light and Cadmium orange. I will continue with the painting tomorrow and block in the rest of the dogs. The paint is drying slow, since I use Walnut Oil.. but that is exactly what I want. The painting is much lighter than it looks on the photos.

Sunset Value Study in Oil

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

A few days ago I printed out a black and white photo of a sunset and decided to paint a value study. It might seam quite boring to create a sunset oil painting with no color, but I did that on purpose of course. I needed to do this as a study for the oil painting of the three Pharaoh dogs I’m currently working on (even though that background isn’t quite a sunset). The painting turned out really nice and I really regret painting this on student canvas-like paper. Well, I will create many more of these in the future, so a little canvas is ordered. Anyway, the conclusion is that the values of some really strong colors are much darker than they actually appear to be.
