I am completing a small strawberry study from Jacqueline Gnott's video " My Favorite Things". Jacqueline makes one take a real close-up look at a strawberry. Wow. I had never noticed all those small details before. Fascinating! Here is my humble 5" x7" rendition of Jacqueline's fruit:
I will be in a two-day show at the end of July. Apparently last year not a single painting sold at that show:-( I think I should have small paintings of this size either framed or just matted to offer some less expensive art. What do you think?
Most artists at that upcoming show work in oil or acrylic. I believe that there will be only one other watercolor artist. I found that surprising. That brought me to reflect on what medium is used on the various daily painters sites. Most daily works are in oils; acrylic is next. Watercolor is fairly rare. Why is that?
Do people hesitate to buy online a painting that is either not yet framed or is framed in glass that could break in transit? Is it that watercolor is not popular or is perceive of lesser value than oil or acrylic paintings?
I would really like to hear your opinion on this topic.
Have a great Sunday.
