"ROBIN" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF A ROBIN © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Robin"
15" x 30" mixed media on canvas
$450 includes frame and shipping in the US
ON HOLD, HOWEVER until it dries!

I took many different photos of this painting before I found one even CLOSE to the color representation on MY computer screen...STILL it seems the colors aren't quite deep enough in some areas, or vibrant enough in other areas.  Part of this is the lighting available to me, and part is the fact the oil is still wet on the bird and needles...BUT, I will photograph it again with better lighting and when it is dry and framed.  I believe I will be getting a floater frame for it in black most likely... Soon I will be offering it on my website and again here when it is ready!

I enjoyed working on this painting.  I spent some time trying to figure out just what size to do the robin...and settled on this...I am not fond of exact representation; thank goodness, because it isn't what I enjoy doing and it makes me too nervous to do that...so the needles are more impressionistic in nature...FUN DOINS FOR ME!!

I've been off lately on getting reference photos for things...I'm sharing two that I particurly like for paintings in the future I'm sure...I like the pine cone with it's darks and lights...a great subject matter by the way for contrast studies!!
When I get around to painting this; if I do...I will lighten the area above the pine cone as it was in shadow and I think would make a great contrast piece...

The pine berries are a favorite of mine, but I've not painted them yet...I decided that I am going to go fauvist on this painting as it is living in a lot of medium value right now...but HOW FUN!!
I have a feeling I'm going to do some small works for a bit...getting ready to offer things on the Daily Paintworks auction site!!  FUN DOINS!!

HAPPY CREATING!
