Day 16: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

"Love They Neighbor"  8" x 8" image,  $65

I'm working on a painting for an upcoming national show, and I want a variety of grey tones.  I had started with the colors, Antwerp blue, Quinacridone gold, and Red Rose Deep.  So I decided to do a small color study to see if I could get the greys that I had in my mind.  This is what I ended up with.  "Love thy Neighbor" is 8" x 8".  If interested in purchasing, go to:  

 Tip of the Day:   Recovering whites:  The best way is to completely surround the shape with masking tape, making an island.  Then press the tape down securely.  Then scrub in little circles, using a wet toothbrush, and clean it often. Be gentle as you scrub.  Gently blot the surface when it's back to white, and then gently remove the masking tape.  Make sure you remove the tape, by pulling it off onto itself, so that you won't tear the paper.  This really works, and whites are magical to make other colors sing!
