All Progress Photos of Cat Hoover

Friday, November 14th, 2014

This is the progress of black cat Hoover in oils with a total of four stages. It is now drying here in my studio, waiting to be scanned. Once the painting is completely dry, I will “oil-out” the surface with walnut oil to bring out those dark colors. Dark oil colors tend to get a bit dull once dry, since I now only use turpentine as a thinner when I paint. Once the oil is on the canvas, the colors get more depth and vibrancy. Scoll down to view all photos.

Oil Portrait of Working Springer Spaniel Rapp

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

This is an Oil Portrait of working Springer spaniel, called “Rapp”. The painting is in size 35 x 35 cm, painted on professionally stretched gallery-wrapped Italian linen canvas. I painted this portrait in alla prima (wet on wet) over three days. I absolutely love the feel and colors in this painting and it will be added to my oil gallery shortly, along with a few more of my recent oil portraits.
