Comparison of Two Mediums


Nikko Heaven (left)
and Pastel Nikko Blues (right)
        Available


Nikko Heaven (oil on left) Sold 


These are two paintings done with
similar compositions, but painted with
two different mediums. Nikko Heaven
is an oil painting and Pastel Nikko Blues
is a soft pastel painting. I thought it
would be fun to compare them next to
each other. By the way, the vase has
Nikko Blue hydrangeas painted on it
with another medium, China Painting.
Another one of my favorite mediums.
Yes, I painted the vase too!

It's always an interesting endeavor
to paint white. There is never just
pure white. White always has a reflection
of the colors that surround it. Even the shadows
have reflected color.

What inspires an artist to paint something?
A delicate turn of a petal....
the way the light catches the edge....
the cast shadow of a cobalt bottle...
All are part of this painting & all a great inspiration.

This is one of those paintings that basically
painted itself. I guess you could say it
rolled off the brushes. I'm really pleased with
the brush work on each surface.
