Chairs

Chair Number 1
4x6 inch acrylic and oil on paper
SOLD

Months ago, I started collecting images of chairs on my Pinterest with the intention of using them as inspiration for paintings.  However, not one of these came from those images.  They are imaginary chairs.

Chair Number 2
4 x 6 inch acrylic and oil on paper
SOLD
 And in these simple chair paintings I discovered how wonderful it is to put down acrylic color first and then paint with oil.  You get a wonderful vibrant color that comes through.  You can draw the chair by scratching into the paint, or just leave bits of color visible.  These are all listed on Etsy.

Chair Number 3
4 x 6 inch acrylic and oil on paper
SOLD

On a side note, recently I discovered Paul Taggart's YouTube channel with video after video on painting in watercolor, acrylic and oil.  If you are self-taught like me, you will really appreciate these videos.  Check them out.
