This will be 18x24. I stapled the canvas to the wall and went at it. I've almost have the color blocked in. It was really fun doing it this way since I usually paint murals. I felt a lot more free. It still has quite a way to go.
Oh, yeah, please excuse the glare.

Please click on the thumbnail to see the real colors. I'm not sure why the table is green. It is really purple.

Off to a good start with comp & colors, looking forward to seeing the progress.

Is this a first for patterned ceramics? (Didn't see any quite the same when I visited your site.)

Thanks Cass! I just made up the vase in my head. (As you can probably tell..hee hee)
I'll post more when I can paint on it again. It is SO wet.

Hi Tracey, I really like the idea of painting a canvas on the wall for bigger paintings, especially since I have a radial easel. The big canvas always moves and swings about.

I have painted flowers, but looked to the experts here for advice on that, so don't feel able to say much, except you do know how to handle those colours nicely. Would you call yourself a colourist painter?

Thanks Mikey!! I don't know what a colorist painter is. I just like to paint what makes me feel good and with which colors move me.

Lovely work Tracy......and I agree with Giberte...nicely stylized...
ps you could try loading you image through quick links (at the top to the left of log out) in the image uploader....this will give you a direct image and is easier for people to look at too...... :)

You've got nice rich colours Tracey and a pleasure to see.

I think Tonalist and Colourist painting are just convenience labels we use, but we wouldn't want to be tied down by them. Is it that Colourists use colour foremost to make a painting work and Tonal painters masses of tone to create srtucture, where colour is secondary.
