Lovely, Irit! Wish you could bottle some of that blue sky and warmth and send it east.
Can't wait to get this Irit...do you have a theme?
Irit, I'm doing the same thing with gesso and oil...or acrylic (depending on how much time I have). Hey, you've started something interesting here, and now you have a few months to figure out what you are going to do to finish it...not a bad idea.
I was wondering about painting in the moleskine and had thought about using canvas paper and applying it to a page, I had not considered gesso....something new to think about. Irit, after all the grey, cold Dallas weather we've been having, I love seeing your bright colors; a wonderful start and something to look forward to when it returns to you.
Such a lovely sky and palms trees. Those colorful houses are already fabulous can't wait to see the final touches.
I didn't know if gesso would warp the pages badly...that's one reason I used the Pitt Pens.Your painting is a beauty with the color!
With the current weather, Irit, your painting is a breath of fresh air. It looks great...and I assume your theme is...warm & sunny, or colorful houses, or lovely Florida weather ...or a bit of all! :-)
Hey guys,I was so happy to read all your comments this morning. That's the way to start my weekend.Thanks for all the comments its mean the world to me. What a wonderful group! I am so proud to be part of this.I do not have a theme feel free to paint what you are comfortable with .After 11 years in Santa Monica I realized that I can find so many ideas in my own neighborhood. Venice is next door to us. So I did this painting, unfinished painting, to give you some idea where do I live. . ****The idea to use light gesso,came from lady D. I have been using Blick's artist's acrylic gesso .Its just perfect for me since I am working with oil only.I cannot wait to see your work. I am mailing my book today, Dana.Have a great weekend, Irit
I am a big sucker for any beach theme painting or especially one with palm trees. If I lived near a beach I would do nothing but paintings like that. Wonderful theme, Irit!
Irit, I LOVE all of the color...it feels like sunshine just looking at it!
