New Chair Paintings

Fancy Chair in Brown

Many have said that chairs are like people...they have personality.  I agree and that is a reason I love to paint them!

Plain Chair in Brown

I made both of these by smearing oil paint on gessoed 140 lb watercolor paper.  The chair drawing is then scratched into the paint and allowed to dry.  The nice thing about working in oil is that you can smear over your mistakes and redraw.  And it's also easier to remain loose in the work.  

Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Your carving into the paint is very effective, Lisa. Beautiful!
    I love what you said - chairs are like people!
    The top one is soft and pretty - most likely eats just the right amount of carbs to have a bit of fun ...and the bottom one is more controlled with attention to detail.
    Most likely a runner to balance out the carbs!
    Have a lovely week.
