Painting of the Week

Painting of the Week – Essentials

Starving Artist Paints TP

After hearing about how desperate people were for toilet paper and paper towels, I chose to paint this painting. So if you are low, you can get 2 free rolls when you purchase this original painting – only $50.00…shipping not included ?

Actually, this is an exercise from my Beginning Watercolor class where we cast light on white objects and paint the shadows we see. Students are always surprised how much they learn from this exercise. Toilet paper and paper towels are also useful for learning to paint cylinders. See the cylinders in my painting “Island Park” shown below in the trees and the columns.

This pandemic is devastating in so many ways. It may be good for painting.  I am concentrating on painting!
