Orange and Blue, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Oil, $150
For me drawing is a discipline. I want to get right into color. And so I struggle with proportions and symmetry. I practice those elements with cups and saucers because the proportions are different every time, and these are symmetrical objects. Just in case you wonder why I do so many cups and saucers.

Irma's Gift, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 8" Oil $200
Last September I experienced Hurricane Irma up close and personally. We were without power for a few days, but fortunately had flashlights and water, so we were fine.
After the hurricane, the beach was a treasure trove. We found several large conch shells  unlike any I'd ever found.
Painting it was challenging and gratifying. Something that was brought up from the deeps had amazing color, shape, texture, and subtlety.
