Now and Zen in White

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 09:17:00 +0000

This one's for me and will probably find a permanent in our Milly the Motorhome :-) I started out aiming to paint the Buddha which sits at my desk (called "Now and Zen") and put in this white underpainting. And there I stopped! I love it ... it seems to represent to me everything that the Zen philosophy is - simple, pure, peaceful and with a depth you have to look for to find. It's mine, mine, mine. :-)

Be My Valentine

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 17:18:00 +0000

Another challenge painting (which, funnily enough, I did use a palette knife on when I was moving the paint in the middle of the two big red flowers!) ... watercolour on Yupo Paper.

I find it keeps me fresh to be fiddling with watercolour or a craft object during the palette knife painting of a more formal painting. Otherwise I tend to fiddle with the formal painting and usually ruin it in some way LOL

Although mainly an oils painter using palette knives, I love to challenge myself by using other mediums and other tools. Sometimes it works, many times it doesn't ... and sometimes I don't mind you seeing the okay ones.

Another medium today for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - acrylic pouring on a craft vase. It's upside down and perched on an apple cider vinegar bottle as that's how it was supported during pouring and it needs to be at least touch-dry before I move it.

"Green Tea Pot"

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 14:53:00 +0000

This is reaching back a few years when some studies and daily paintings were signed TPP as they were done as demos for students of my studio, The Painters' Palette. TPP was the official signature of work produced in The Painters' Palette studio. They sold on eBay at the time (I no longer run an eBay store).

I have always loved tea pots, for what they represent as well as for their shape ... fat and round with useful appendages and an interesting lid to top it off. To me they represent family and friends, comfort and home - and all that goes with that.

So I present "Green Tea Pot" ...

Dipped in Cream

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 10:03:00 +0000

A palette knife was used in this painting to mainly to move the white background to places I wanted it to be. The other colours were dropped in.

"Dipped in Cream" is now at The Gaslamp Gallery in Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland and will be featured in their Spring exhibition.

Pair of Petunias

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 12:05:00 +0000

It's amazing how often a palette knife is picked up and used during the creation of mixed-tool paintings."Petunia Pair" - which is now being exhibited by The Gaslamp Gallery in Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland - is just such an example. The white background was spread with my favourite palette knife and bits and parts of the flowers were encouraged into place using that same palette knife ... and the other tools are a mystery! LOL Simply because I can't remember what I used!!So often a painting is created while I'm in a sort of arty farty daze, instinctively using whatever medium or tool is necessary to create the final effect ... and, like a chef who doesn't use a recipe, it's hard to remember what was used, when someone asks at the end of the process!You can access The Gaslamp Gallery website here: http://www.thegaslampgallery.com/(You won't find my paintings up on the gallery at the moment as they are being held back for a Spring launching ... but they're there ... just ask!)"Pair of Petunias" by Lynda CooksonMy website : https://lyndacookson.blogspot.fr[...]
