Sketch by Amy Crehore May 2011
I made this sketch last night called "Blue Whale Cove". I'm going to try painting on a piece of wood this time. I already have a unique gold frame and I cut the wood to fit it. The frame will determine the direction of the color scheme this time, as I want it to become part of "the whole".

"A Delicate Promenade" by Amy Crehore 2011 (click to enlarge drawing)
"A Little Escapade" by Amy Crehore 2011 (click to enlarge drawing)
Someone told me that they really liked my preliminary drawings, so I thought I would show you the two pencil drawings that I did for my new paintings. "A Little Escapade" totally morphed into something different when I painted it. Also, here are some quick digital shots of how these paintings looked framed before I shipped them off to the NEW BROW IV show in Seaside, CA. (Opens Friday May 13, 2011) More info about this show in a previous post.

Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889-1962) "was a French painter specialising
in portraits of Parisian women. In the 1920's Domergue invented a new type of woman : thin, airy, elegant, with a swanlike neck. 'I invented the pin-up, he later claimed."

The image shown above is a new painting that I just finished. It is called "A Little Escapade" (8"x 10" oil on linen with a black frame 13.5" x 11.5"). I will blog my other painting as soon as it is dry enough to scan. These are for an upcoming show in Seaside, CA on May 13.
More details to come!
