|"Thinking on the stairs" oil and charcoal on linen by Kerry Steele|
Last week, the mood struck to do another figural piece. I chose linen and began in several pastel colors. It quickly began to resemble one of my blue and white pieces on linen with the pastel colors standing-in for the white.
I have a 48 x 48 canvas with an indentation on the top stretcher bar, nothing huge but I felt wrong to sell it so I painted something for myself. It is another painting that defies photography and won't show all of the subtleties in color.
Instagram filters seemed to be my only help.
In reality it is somewhere between the two.
I also am trying to do a few smaller canvases.
I picked up two 5 x 7 canvases and decided to give it a whirl.
The one on the left sold very quickly so I think I need to do more.
