Some of my latest acrylic paintings
Scraped paint, gel medium stencilling, metallics.
1st | Rylstone-Kandos Show
Five sold paintings
I exhibited paintings in two local exhibitions during the last five months, resulting in three sold paintings. At one venue I sold an acrylic painting, while two watercolour pictures were sold in another.
In addition, I sold an acrylic painting and completed a commission in coloured pencil,
Sadly, I only took photos of one of these sold paintings: Jasper.
Commissioned 'portrait' one of the sold paintings
Jasper is the faithful companion of Kevin and Marsha, who own other paintings of mine.
Using Prismacolour Premier pencils on Colorfix paper, I enjoyed painting the portrait. It was very satisfying to do. One thing that surprised me though, was how quickly the sanded surface wore down the colour pencils. Had to buy more white and ginger pencils!
As a result of painting this picture, I have another commission for a portrait of Buddi, who is a very old Jack Russell/Maltese cross much loved by his owner.
Remember my replacement acrylic painting of the lotus made for my friend? She insisted that I put it into Rylstone Agricultural Show.
Prize winning acrylic painting
Lotus Blossom which I entered into the acrylic painting section, was hung in a really prominent position. On Saturday it won a first prize. Very chuffed.
The judge was impressed by the way the background created reflections in the water.
Also entered was a watercolour of Lake Windamere. Used Art Spectrum watercolours on Arches cold pressed A2 paper. No prize, but may be sold.
My friends who were the ones who commissioned Lotus Blossom, who offered to pay me. I refused that and said they could buy me a couple of tubes of paint. My lovely friends gave me a wonderful gift on Sunday.
A bag full to the top with art supply goodies and a pocharde. I have been tossing up whether that was a “need to have” or a “nice to have”.
Also in the pocharde were more good things: a wooden artist’s mannequin and another palette.
Aren’t I lucky?
Art Show Entries
Kandos NSW celebrates its centenary this year and I entered Cementa Art Show[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id="14" gal_title="Kandos Centenary Art Exhibition"]
Every month we have a challenge, one of which was fantasy. Since I’m not into fairies and ghosts, I painted an angel in mixed media on mount board.
