Art Series #16 - Hand Study in Oils & My Art Story

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Spring has finally arrived here and I'm very excited, for warm weather of course, but, also, because it means beautiful flowers and hopefully lots of practice painting them! Today, though, I am sharing the last of the small oil studies I did in January, "Hand Study", 5 x 7", Oil on Canvas Board. I shared the final painting over on Facebook and Instagram back when I finished it--follow be on social media to get those first looks at my finished pieces--but, in this post you'll get a closer look at it and the detail and colour of it! I am very pleased with how it turned out! I'll also share the time lapse of it's creation and my art story, so continue on for all that...


I really wish that everyone could see it in person because I feel in photos the texture of the canvas gets in the way of the actual painting. From now on I think I'll add a couple of coats of gesso to my canvases before painting on them to get a smoother surface. I got a few GessoBoard panels for Christmas and I can't wait to paint on those. I think for practice paintings I'm going to get some MDF board and prepare some of those to paint on. It's basically the same idea as GessoBoard, but not quite as lovely. What's your preferred painting surface?



That's it for this Art Series post, friends! Check out some of my other Art Series posts here! See you soon!
