Sid's Vicious Dogwood

I had leftover paint from Thursday, so I panted Sid's dogwood tree because he posted such pretty pictures of it.  Sid is an excellent painter who lives in Maryland.

This painting was particularly good practice to find masses in very lacy areas.

8x10 oil on panel, hour and a half

  4. Hello, I found your colour pallets on Wet Canvas and was hoping to create some myself. What paper or surface did you use so the oils would not bleed?

    Many tanks

  6. Jess, I wanted to tell you that Luna is part Samoyed. We got her from a white shepherd rescue group but our vet said first thing he thought she was part samoyed. It must be true because you aren't the first to think this. Then people that are familiar with shepherds think they see that in her. What ever we love her.
