Last Finished Painting of 2011 and First Finished Painitng of 2012

Posted by Debbie Beukema. Comments Off on Last Finished Painting of 2011 and First Finished Painitng of 2012

First of all, I want to wish all my readers, real and fake (you know who you are) a very hsppy new year!

I’ve been busy. I have a lot of paintings in progress, 3 commissions scheduled to begin on the 6th, another on the 28th and one already for Feb.

The good news is that The Red Mill is finished and on it’s way to its owner

I also did the designing of this image for my newer Zazzle store: http://www.zazzle.com/dbartworks/red+mill+gifts

The first finished painting of 2012 is On The Beach. That is it’s finished as long as I don’t get any urges to fuss with anything…

This will need a week or two to dry, be varnished, matted, framed, and shipped. This one’s permanent home is all the way in Australia! Cool!

Posted by Debbie Beukema. Comments Off on Finished Da Kitties and Cool Client Help

Here’s the Kitties all nice and done. This was so much fun to do and it was awesome putting in the little fur and whisker details.

Oh and check out what a client made for me! A side by side of her photo and the painting I made for her from that photo. She what I can do? Huh? Huh!?! I’m good like that : )

3 Current Gray Scale Underpaintings

Posted by Debbie Beukema. Comments Off on 3 Current Gray Scale Underpaintings

Number One: Laughing Geese. This is after the 1st underpainting and I will definitely be back in to adjust and get the tree and the delineation line in the back less straight.


Next we have the second version of Butterfly. I had some problems with the first version and instead of throwing good time after bad, I decided just to restart it. Glad I did.

And finally the second coat of underpaint for Geese. I wanted to finish this layer but needed to call it a night. Things are really starting to pop, but I need to get to the buildings
