New work

I haven't really posted much new work lately mostly because I have so many canvases in progress and this week was not art friendly. If it weren't such a gloomy November August, I would be able to get more photos taken properly. Where is the freakin' sun?

This is my newest completed work on linen.

"Style canoeing" 24 x 30 oil and charcoal on linen by Kerry Steele

Paintings that are very light with subtle color changes are very hard to photograph. This one is white and cream with a little sepia and cobalt. The cream and white are hard to differentiate in the photo but they add quite a bit to the composition.


This is an iphone shot of "In deep" but it won't be on the website or FB until I get enough sun to photograph it properly. I got some new tubes of Charvin oils and had fun with this one.


The colors are complex pastel mixes and I could mix my own but to have absolute consistency ver time, I need them in tube form. With acrylics I just mix a bunch in a little plastic container and work with that but its a little harder to store the oil colors.

I can't wait to share more of the things I have been working on.
Stay tuned.

Beautiful work. I understand how times gets away from us. Maybe one day, I came take some painting classes. I have always admired people for their work. Enjoy the week-end.

On the linen painting, is the gray just the charcoal mixing in to the paint? I really like it.

Style Canoeing is lovely! Of course I love this neutral piece!! And I can see the shades of creams and whites.
