The Drink

I finished reading about the painter "Anders Zorn' and the limited color palette he used for his beautiful paintings. I decided to give it a try. This is a small study I did for a larger piece I plan in the future. It came out rather nice.

Yellow Orche / Cadmium Red Light / Ivory Black / Titanium White ( I cheated and used Ultramarine Blue on the pants only)

6"x8" oil on linen

About Dave Ivey

I started drawing when I was in elementary school and have been fascinated by it ever since. I draw and sketch consistently today. Drawing is the foundation of all my paintings. Having been a editorial artist early in my career helped me hone my drawing skills which I continually strive to improve to this day capturing the enviroment that surrounds me.  Many of my paintings today are birthed from the rural lifestyle that my wife and I enjoy.

I paint every day as a commitment to myself to perfect the God given abilities I have been blessed with.  Painting is what I love and long to be doing when I am not doing it. This is passion that I don’t intend on neglecting, but nurturing for the rest of my life
