An Inca Dove for today's 5" x 7"
I do love painting Inca doves. (is it 'dove' or 'doves'?) A nice round shape and warm colors.... This little 7" x 5" oil study is today's piece for my 75 for $75 project. To see the rest of the paintings, go to the 75 for $75 page on my website. All the paintings are $75 each, unframed plus $6 shipping within the U.S. These little oils are quick, spontaneous studies that I do to help me become a better painter. This is how I work out color combinations, brush work, etc. I love doing them too! I paint 8 am - 5 pm, six days a week - sometimes 7 days when I'm getting ready for a show. When I first started the 75 for $75 project, I would do the 5" x 7" study at the end of my work day, but I've found that if I do the little painting first thing in the morning, it loosens me up for the larger, more serious paintings that I work on for the rest of the day.
