oil on linen
Here is my latest large painting done in Tonalist style. It was completed about five weeks ago and since then I've put it in a black frame. I think the black sets it off nicely.
The thing I've noticed about paintings done in this style is that they seem to glow on the walls. Unlike some of my Impressionist work, one notices the many layers of opaque paint, translucent paint and transparent passages. I've fallen head over heels in love with this style. Although the learning curve has been extremely steep for me, I think it's been worth the many months of study.
Very soon my new on-line class starts with Deborah Paris. It's called Magic Hours. I'm so grateful to her for showing the way.
