|Flea by Ann Tuck. 16"x20" Oil on canvas.|
I'm all about just painting what I want to paint these days. Especially after a break for preparing taxes.
|I started out with a nice sketchy sketch|
|and worked most of the painting|
in only burnt sienna and ultramarine blue.
I always end up to adding a patch of cadmium red light for composition anyway, so that's what the runic things are all about--purely for composition. Since paintings are for the observer to interpret, you can interpret the runes as you like too. (I haven't decided what they mean anyway).
I don't think I'll post this for sale anywhere. The subject matter may turn people off my um...dog paintings. If you're interested though, pop me a note.
