SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 6 Vinyard, 8×8 oil on canvas panel
$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 7, oil on 8×8-inch archival canvas panel, unframed.
After playing with iridescent oil sticks last night at the First Thursday Art Walk, I had the urge to use them again.
This morning, I worked on canvas panels so the texture would easily pick up the oil. With the alizerin crimson underpainting and shimming deep colors, I was able to recreate a majestic atmosphere. And the sgraffito adds a bit of whimsey.
