Original Art For Sale, C. Twomey

"A Conversation: Eggplant Greeting Shell" by C. Twomey oil
"A Conversation: Eggplant Greeting Shell" by C. Twomey


These companions together were perfect. I don't know if it was the shapes (intriguing), the colors (harmonizing), the tension (subtle) or all of that - they just had to be painted.

To view additional art for sale, please click:

HERE

Process

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.

Original Oil "Appearently So" by C. Twomey, Auction!

original oil by C. Twomey
"Appearently So", original oil, 9 X 12", C. Twomey



Imagine this painting on YOUR wall and you'll want to place a bid HERE immediately! This is done from life, in the alla prima style, meaning it was completed in one sitting.

It's that time of year, and I found this trio of Bosc pears at the local grocery and had to paint them. I loved the spots, and the orangish glow throughout. This is an original oil, sized 12'W X 9"H. It is painted on archival linen from RayMar.

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.

The painting has been varnished and will be carefully packaged by me. Please note that the painting is not framed.

BREAKING NEWS! I’ve just been notified that three of my paintings have been accepted for the highly competitive Randy Highbee 6X6 Squared exhibition in Los Angeles, CA. I'm very honored and excited to participate in this show featuring top nationwide artists.

About Me
I've been painting since 2008. Up until then, I honed my drawing and painting skills by practicing as a Certified Medical Illustrator. My blogs have been viewed by over 70,000 people worldwide, and I have over 2,000 followers on Facebook on Catherine Twomey Art. 

I've just been notified that three of my paintings have been accepted for the highly competitive Randy Highbee 6X6 Squared exhibition in Los Angeles, CA. I'm very honored and excited to participate in this show featuring top nationwide artists.

My paintings are of a variety of subjects and sizes, ranging from 4 X5" up to 18 X 24" or greater. Each painting is carefully considered, sometimes in a series or in a similar approach to the subject matter. What's most important is that each painting is defined by the moment it is created. Whether it reflects a mood, or a moment, or something so beautiful it had to be painted; my soul goes into each stroke, color choice, composition and execution. Having studied Japanese Art for my Master's Thesis, I instinctively incorporate the Japanese respect for careful presentation and finishing, personally varnishing and packaging the work

My artwork has been featured at the world renowned TED (Technology, Education and Design) conference (TED MED in San Diego, on huge high definition screens throughout the exhibition center).

Notes
I accept Paypal payments. This painting is currently drying, so it won't be shipped for about three weeks. I personally varnish, wrap and ship the painting to ensure a successful delivery.

Lake Summer Swing, 6X8", original oil



About the Painting
Set up my easel on Kenilworth Lake this summer and painted this peaceful scene. The kids love to swing out over the lake, so on any hot day I can hear their laughter and joy. This morning was somewhat blustery, which moved the swing like a ghost was riding it and rippled the water.

More about the Artist

Recently two of my pieces were awarded the cover and inside art for Wine and Country Living magazine, and were purchased for the publisher's collection. In 2015 one of my pieces was a finalist in the Gigliola Gamerini Award International Competition, and was exhibited in Florence, Italy.
