This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.
Don't forget to leave a comment, or a question if you have one, below the post. Thanks.

NORA Oil on Linen 18 x 14

EMMY Oil on Linen 18 x 14

I thought I was finished, but I decided to use the same background on both paintings.
They kind of go together.
They're sisters


  1. Did you cool the backgrounds a bit?..I was trying to see the difference from the older posts. In any event... they are strong, beautiful images.

  2. Thanks, it helps that they are strong beautiful girls.
    As you know, greys can be a problem.I was trying for a neutral, and darker -Emmy was originally pale yellowish, and too close to the skin. Noras red sweater threw green into the grey.aaarrrgg
    Of course, if you have a MAC, all bets are off.

  3. I do have a mac...seems like they show pretty well through it...I am intrigued about how mine look now that you mentioned it. Am still trying to understand what happens from monitor to monitor..pc to mac etc., much too much info to absorb, sigh. I'd rather paint.

  4. It's the gamma mostly.Different defaults. RGarriott is the MAC queen, maybe she'll do a post on that, if she hasn't already.When I got my first pc somewhere around 1986, it was text. DOS Boot I called it. MACs were for graphics. Now they're pretty much the same,except for the prices.Ho.but I'll check with RG.

  5. Thanks Leslie, quite a compliment....
