NEW PAINT IS LIKE WATER

detail
Blue Boat 16x12 oil on canvas
It's like dipping your brush in the water..............the way oil paint feels. We make ripples, reflections, hard shiny surfaces and soft indistinct forms. We paint glare on glass, fog, leather, rocks, clouds. What magic.
This is the marina at Decatur Al. Painted as a demonstration for our monthly class. See
Robin RobertsArt.com for information about classes. I give an introductory class ( one on one) for newcomers to the class.

  1. Robin, your paintings are awesome! We knew each other as kids, through the McCullicks in Austin. I have seen, in an internet search, that Tracey is an art therapist. I have a blog on here, but I haven't blogged in a while and it isn't focused like yours. I really am impressed with your paintings! -Melanie Waters

  2. I love this Robin! I would never have seen the beauty in the real scene that you were able to capture.
