The Cut by Sally Shisler

 The Cut, 10x20" Oil on linen 201445
Available - Contact me for pricing.

Been working on larger things, experimenting with my knives and loving every minute of it! I can't wait til my next workshop in a few weeks. My students are in for some real fun! BTW - there are only 2 spots left. Class is limited to 8. If you're interested, contact me asap.
OK, so... drama queen lately. I am entranced by working out of darkness; dramatic theater type lighting as opposed to the sunny light of outdoors. So many things happened in this painting. Starting with being another painting that got scraped (even after almost dry - can do this with thick paint). Brush toned with mix of prussian blue and raw umber. Built the dark jewel like colors from there. LOVE alizarin crimson; prussian blue; magenta; sap green; and lamp black. Just started using black (only lamp so far); much to the chagrin of my students. Mixing the three primaries is good fundamental practice; but when lamp black helps you achieve richer darks with lots of depth - USE IT!
