Painting Chamomile and Butterflies in Oil

Oil Painting Chamomile and Butterflies. from Ginette Callaway on Vimeo.



I am starting a new oil painting today. Something similar to this one. This chamomile and butterflies sells very well as art print

The original is a huge acrylic on canvas. It's over 5 feet by 5 feet. If you want to buy it contact me or go to the listing in my ETSY store. Below is the link. I twill ship as rolled canvas because of it's size.

I have been playing with the idea of painting this in oil. Today I am starting on it. It's a size of 24 inches tall and 36 inches wide with the canvas prepped with my texture process of marble dust and gesso.

I don't do all paintings like this but this one I will. I really want to get back to making my canvas textured with the marble dust. I like it a lot.

I am an independent, self supporting artist and Renaissance woman, working full time on my art. I absolutely love what I do. Creating art consumes me. I paint original art with oil paints, watercolors, also ink and pastel. Additionally I use the photos of my art or scans to create mixed media, where I use digital tools to layer texture or change the colors of these original paintings. Not a day goes by where I don't create something new. My original paintings are on ginettecallaway.com My art prints are on ginetteprints.com and over 1000 pieces or art prints, that includes some of my earlier work and many abstract pieces are on http://www.imagekind.com/artists/GinetteCallaway/all/fine-art-prints
