Oil on Canvas
Painting is all about shadows and light and there is nothing more interesting (to me) than painting light. I am always on the lookout for a white dress or white accessories...something light to challenge myself. A few weeks ago while at a local flea market I found this fabulous white kimono.
The conversation went something like this...
me: May I see that kimono (which was up on a mannequin on a high shelf)
vendor: I only want to take it down if you really think you want to buy it. (grousing)
me: (trying to contain my excitement) I am seriously considering it (game face on)
vendor...takes the kimono down
me...whipped out cash and paid him so fast his head spun!
I called one of my favorite models to come over and decided to put my coromandel screen in the background and began painting. What fun!
I am sure I will use this kimono often...and I am constantly on the lookout for other props!
