I have a webite http://www.jimmiesart.com/, you can visit to see more of my artwork and more info about me. I will get to the artist profile and rest of the blog features as time permits, but first let's get some paintings posted to have something to talk about.
I finished the oil painting on the left last month. It is the "Mission Espiritu Santo de Zuniga" located in Goliad, Texas.
My wife and I visited the missions in Goliad and took lots of pictures to work from. The scene is in the summer, very hot, with a high sky. This painting is on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas. I used both palette knife and brushwork on this painting since the building has plaster type work on the walls. The knife was used to block in the sky and building and I brushed in the areas of fine detail.
