Daily Oil Painting Abstract Westie Dog
The snow is all but gone in the shadows. I am painting a group of westie dogs in an realist, impressonist style with abstract backgrounds. The colors I am just picking out by my moods and surroundings. So how does this work? Well, there is not much science involved luckily.
We stirred up banana bread and added grated orange rind to the batter. That is the color combination of the abstract squares. The green and blue I brought in from outside. The purple is from the clouds shining on the lowering sun. But really the puppy is the beautiful part of the painting!
These smaller oil paintings are less expensive than the larger ones and they are a great size to collect and make small groupings of them. Look for more. This one is on ebay for grabs now.
