The Gypsy girl


Copyright by Dominique Amendola


Painting A Day: Original oil on prepared oak plywood
Size: 11"x14"- unframed
Price: $149.00
Status: Available

Daily painting of a nice model of Gypsy origins. This is painted alla prima with a quick brush stroke. notice that it is not overdone and very fresh. The model posed next to a window so i had plenty of natural colors and half tones as well as north light. This is painted with my own Maroger medium formula. It borrows from the Titian tradition using some wax in it. it allow the paint to both glide and each strokes to stay right where they were applied.

Dominique,
I just love your blog. You are one of the best painters I've ever seen. I also discovered a lost email you sent me a long time ago requesting link exchange. So sorry. I am putting you on my blog tonight. My old blog went into retirement. You are so lucky to have had la bonne chance d'etudie a l'ecole des Beaux Art de Paris. Aimez vous La California plus que Paris???? Non, je ne crois pas...
