VERY happy to announce that I finally have sorted my YouTube channel and have uploaded a whole pile of slideshow vids.

Here is another:

I have been working on this piece below for a while, and Im not sure about it at all, slow progress is foreign to me and I would love to just paint over it, my rule of thumb in general is that if its not flowing fast, forget it, but there is a small niggle,,,, keep going, its going to be ok lol… so I am 🙂
this one is finished and sold… its off to Australia. …

I think Im coming to the end of my Shades of White series, well I mean my obsession with it, there is ALWAYS a few more that sneak out when I least expect it, but I feel another phase morphing its way over me and Ill been keen to see what happens next week in the studio! 🙂
my ‘Shades of White’ series #5 above, complete and sold. This one is my favourite!
Totally in my element to be painting these at the moment, loving the backgrounds, they look like a mix of galaxy and marble to me. I create them with a combo of water spraying, sponging and big/wide paint brush on its side, I layer this up, and sometimes let dry inbetween layers, but because Ms Gemini here needs INSTANT results, we are not too fond of ‘waiting for things to dry’, no, noooooo waiting for me…. of course, IF I do have to wait, I have another 6 paintings to continue on with on my never ending conveyor belt of creations. 🙂
………also completed and sold #4 below: (c) Reina Cottier Art 2013
and I have started 2 more!
ON A ROLL!!!!
*but quietly wonders when it will end?- who cares!*
I painted the background of #1 and then doodled a very fast design straight onto the canvas and painted the outline of it white, as I always do as a prep for the rest to come… the COLOUR, the signature ‘Reina colour’ 🙂 ……
I posted an ‘In Progress’ pic on my FB page and got an overwhelming response of: “its FAB as it is!!” … so, a new series was born…
this is the finished result of the first one:
#1 (18″ x 36″-for sale) (c) Reina Cottier Art 2013
