Impressionist Oil Painting Monarch Butterflies and Chamomile Flowers

I painted this in April 2016. It’s a 24 by 26 inch oil painting. Check out the close up images.I prepared the canvas with a mixture of marble dust and gesso that i move around to created a stucco like texture. After that is totally dry I painted in oil.  Here are two videos. I did not tape everything I just don’t have the time to do that. But it gives you a good idea of my oil painting style. I like the impressionist approach, but I do have my own unique style. I’m not trying to totally emulate that wonderful impressionist era but rather be inspired by it.

I had painted a large acrylic a while back just with that motive. Bunches of butterflies and a field of chamomile and assorted flowers. The painting is very popular as print.

I decided to paint it also in oil.

The painting is finished now. you can buy it from my website ginettecallaway.com

homage to vangogh and keisai eisen

Japanese Woman in Kimono

 

Inspired by the interesting interpretation by Vincent van Gogh, of one of Keisai Eisen’s woodblock print called “The Courtesan”. Here, I created my own interpretation. Lighter then Van Gogh’s oil painting and lacking the brilliant precision of the great woodblock artist Keisai. My interpretation is more whimsical and free. I hope you enjoy and appreciate it.

” which is from the same “Japanesery” series

Japanesery) was the term the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh used to express the influence of Japanese art.

Before 1854 trade with Japan was confined to a Dutch monopoly and Japanese goods imported into Europe were for the most part confined to porcelain and lacquer ware. The Convention of Kanagawa put an end to the 200-year-old Japanese foreign policy of Seclusion and opened up trade between Japan and the West.

Artists such as Manet, Degas and Monet, followed by Van Gogh, began to collect the cheap colour wood-block prints called ukiyo-e prints. For a while Vincent and his brother Theo dealt in these prints and they eventually amassed hundreds of them (now housed in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam)” read more about the subject at WIKI
