Still Life Painting Threes Company by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life Painting Threes Company by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I usually paint pretty exclusively with RGH artist oil paints but decided to change for a bit so I ordered a set of artist grade Gamblin oils. I don't know if I like them or not. The consistency is so different. I wish I could explain it but the Gamblin seemed to smear and The Cad Red Light just did not seem to mix as bright as with RGH. I am gonna continue to try them because yep! I have a whole set. Maybe it is just me and my not being used to them. I will let you know...

Still Life Painting "Something Beautiful" by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life Painting "Something Beautiful"  by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I painted all morning, animals for the most part on 6x6 canvas but then I decided to do this one. It is a larger painting on 20x20x1.75 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. Sometimes after painting smaller paintings it is kind of intimidating to start a larger one. I really like this one.

Talking Things Over still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Talking Things Over still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Well! I learned something today. Never Ever be pulled in by free merchandise, They just sucker you in. I recently bought some Gamblin artist oils and they came with this free painting panel. Well... All it did was make me want more so in the long run it will be only cost me more money. Lol... I am to smart for them. I figured out the trick and will resist but it did paint nicely as the oils just glided on. I went to an antique sort of store today. Calhoun County Pickers and bought this little vase. It is actually a sugar and creamer but I only painter the one. I love it but will definitely paint it again soon.
I don't know the exact size of this but close to 6x12 with boxed sides which are also painted.
