Wildflowers in spice jar

Back to alla prima, light-and-shadow style for this one. Trying to paint loose, hoping that some of Quang Ho's magic has rubbed off on me from watching his DVDs.

Soulful Jazzy.

This is a really nice, loose piece Jala!

It's beautifully loose! I especially love the treatment of the jar.

Mona said...

Nice one Jala! Such a sweet photo of the dog too.

Marian Fortunati said...

Who's the cutie??? Is Jazzy his / her name.... ??? SOOOOOO cute.

Oh... now I've scrolled down and I see there's a second lovie... How wonderful... beautiful dogs, Jala!

I always enjoy your alla prima work... You are so versatile!!

So as you try different methods, do you find you have a preference or do you warehouse it in the brain and pull it out as you need it?

I'm asking as I just ordered Quangs' DVD also after reading about it here and in the spring 09 issue of Workshop Magazine.

I love how you handle the loose painterly brushwork.

Is Jazz giving the Blorpenmeister a day off from the camera and kleig lights of web fame?
