Seitz’s Magpie

Hello all!

This was a difficult study for me. This is why I am sharing this. I picked Monet's Magpie to work from on this one.

This is primarily a study tool, to see how close I could get to the same colors, using a limited primary palette. No black, and only using blue, yellow, red and white!

I used a palette knife and brush on this one. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment!

Enjoy this little jewel of knowledge!

About Patricia Seitz

Artist Statement: I enjoy painting from nature, animals, and man made items. I try to gather as much information as possible prior to beginning a painting. I like subjects whereby are in rich color, and light is of primary focus.  I like to be challenged by subject matter that presents a degree of difficulty. I begin a piece by studying, and sketching the subject. From that point, I apply all that information to the canvas.I know a piece is done when I feel satisfied with the results.When my work is going well, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment and joy.When people see my work, I'd like them to enjoy the mood, brilliancy of color, and the dynamics of light play.
