This is a true blog with images, descriptions and comments. It compliments my online gallery http://www.ronunruhgallery.webs.com. It describes creative process and the finished product on someone's wall.
The photo is less than sharp but the colours are close to the original oil on canvas, and the painting is new, perhaps my last Vineyard Collection piece for a while. I couldn’t get over the vivid colours and consequently the unwieldy title is, ‘ROSES ARE RED AND GRAPES ARE TOO.’ For the past couple of weeks I have worked on five paintings, each quite different from one another. That serves a purpose when using oil because it is wet for some days, and this exchange allows time for setting before application of something further. Completing a piece in a day, wet oil into wet oil is called Alle Prima and it is a fruitful exercise for accomplished painters who do it well.
