“I painted this Pomegranates and Marbles (still life oil painting, on 14″ x 14″ birch panel) alla prima over a course of 3 days due to the slow drying qualities of my painting medium, walnut oil. I enjoy painting with slow mediums that allow me extra time and space to change my mind about some painting choices I made. Working wet into wet is the only way I can paint as the painting feels alive with its movable parts. Once anything dries it is fixed and done. I used solvent only in the initial drawing phase while at other times it was only pure walnut oil. This video is supported by Penticton & District Community Arts Council, Province of BC, Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, Canada Helps, Gore Mutual, and generous community sponsors.”
