Palette Kinfe Painting of a Women in Red Dress

sold but available as a print on my Etsy


This oil painting was created using only a palette knife and oil paint. I tried to keep to a limited palette of complimentary colors for a dramatic impact. For her dress, I used alizarin crimson with some green for the darks and cadmium red for most other light areas. I painted this one in 2016...I don't remember exactly. I loved painting her red dress. This one just flowed so effortlessly. They don't always happen like that ,so when it does I remember it, for sure! I've done several paintings of women in red and I'm sure I will do more someday. I'm inspired by beautiful fabrics and bridal gowns and since I've been wedding dress shipping recently, I have lots of paintings in mind. This oil painting is only an 8x10 and I'm trying to paint on a larger scale lately, so I may do something similar but larger.

I like your new name and design. I've been a little behind on blogging and I'm a bit confused as to why my blog feed has the the same few bloggers over and over. I used to follow so many. Comments and page views are down, too. I thought maybe the popularity of IG was the reason. I don't have the answer but maybe you aren't alone.
