#32 Art Supplies - Sheryl Hawkins

I have been mixing my mediums lately and splitting my painting time between watercolors and oils.  This is a small (5X7) oil on canvas.  I have been working a lot with reflective surfaces and different ways to handle them.  This time, I tried working in a little looser style (well, much looser for me) than my usual way.  I was trying to keep from painting the tiny details like I usually do, and just include those I needed.  It is easier for me to work loosely in oils than with the watercolors which always end up more detailed no matter how I start the painting.  I was trying to only post watercolors, but as long as I am learning from them- I think it is a good thing!

Exciting reflections everywhere: behind the pencils in the can, the paint tube against the can... and that paint tube with so much character looks like we could reach out and pick it up! Fun!

...ditto Lorrie! Your reflections are always primo. I haven't painted with oil since 1978. It's in the back of my mind, though. One of these days I'm going to add it back into the mix.

Art tools - what a fun subject! I am really enjoying your paintings and the awesome reflections that you capture.
