This is the busiest time of the year for me, a number of important birthdays, and family celebrations and lots of other activities that need my attention,

hence, not an overly active painting time, but still… I have managed to start some really cool cnavas’s that are making me smile.

here’s 2 I started, the red & purple on the left and the turquoise, orb & koru on the top right- both with LOADS of texture…

The bottom right is a revamp, a re visit of an older one that never ever quite sat ‘right’ with me. So I am totally changing it, and its feeling much better, even though I still have a long way to go.

all in progress……..

thses 2 are finished and sold:

this one is part of the ongoing ‘Shades of White’ series, I decided to depart from the ‘marbly’ type backgrounds and go for something smoother….

So, continuing with my latest obsession:

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: May 15 final iphone(c) Reina Cottier Art 2013

Shades of White

Shades of White #1

well this series happened quite by ‘accident’ ….

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)
