Memories Series - Seaside Underpainting

Beside The Seaside

Underpainting

oil on canvas, 16 x 20 inches

As with the other paintings in this series, this still life is based around family photos from the 1950s. The underpainting was completed using a mixture of very diluted oil paint and almost looks like a watercolour painting. I'll add more colour (although still quite muted) and thicker paint in the next layer.

Alison,
You work is beautiful and great fun. It's obvious the process is also fun for you. I'm a California Artist. Come visit.
