Pin It

Oil, 8" x 8" 
$300.00 on canvas panel with display easel.
This palette knife painting of a small sailboat was completed this past weekend while I was in Balboa Island at a painting workshop with Darrell Hill. He is an amazing artist and has truly mastered how to "tell a story with as few brush strokes as possible".  I think Darrell's two favorite colors to paint with are orange and sage green - so we definitely agree on color selection! Darrel paints quickly because he doesn't over paint his paintings. His brush strokes are deliberate and his colors are pure and clear. He seems to have mastered a routine and style that allows him to create some of the most stunning paintings I have ever seen.  If you ever get a chance, take one of his workshops!
