this is so light in feeling, i thought it was a watercolor.

Susan Abbott said...

I'm finding that the way I'm using oils has been changed by so many years of working in watercolor, Liana. More direct color, no dark underpainting, and no neutral pigments. Also, I'm mixing color directly on the canvas. One big difference--after paint has dried, it is much easier to correct and adjust oils than watercolors!

Scrolled down my blogger dashboard and this painting stopped me in my tracks. Did you sell it? And,what is your price for a painting this size?
