Remember the Renoir commissions that mysteriously disappeared in the mail? Well, they never resurfaced so I painted them again. I debated over whether I should use the ones I painted last time as reference or use the print outs I had of the original Renoirs. I opted to look at the original paintings. I knew they wouldn't be exactly the same, but at least I was starting at the same point. I was happy with how they came out and my customer is happy too. I am now an expert at every detail in these paintings. I need to go to the MFA soon and see the real ones in person.
is an award winning artist who paints exclusively with a palette knife. She holds a fine art degree and has worked as a professional graphic designer for many years. She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop through the Copley Society of Art in Boston and was immediately hooked. The thick, painterly, yet highly detailed strokes of color are trademarks of her style.
