A few retouched

Slight retouch of this koi 48x48, added in more dimension and bright contrasts. I like to think the koi I lost last month are living inside this piece. #abstractart #abstractthought #koi #contemporaryart #modernart #art #decor #gallery #exhibitionseries #americanartist #japan #largeart

In order to provide our home with 6 of us more room, I’m going through old art I outgrew and am repurposing them. Below I’m working with gold leaf on three old ones

My 1st ballerina painting. I’m going to redo her. Make her better  

“Reborn”

I think just a few more touches to soften and add dimension and then she’ll be done #geisha #art #painting #americanartist #contemporaryart #modernart #interiordesign #figurativeart #japan #kimono #kelliethomaswalker

Very quick sketch on # 2. I ran out of black so my mom is running to get me some😘. Probably can’t see it (but I can) it’s a ballerina laying down legs stretched out, from neck down.

1st on Figurative Series

cleaned up get legs point shoes and background. Added in flective lines the. Some sheer paint for dimension. I always line up my painting with the grooves of the wood floor when doing lines. It’s so easy to go crooked on accident. I used my smudger for the lines and highlights on her legs with quick flicks of my wrist.

The surprise painting I did of my niece for her graduation present. I posted a lot of pics because it’s hard to see in photos the metallic gold I used. Incredible dimension in person, catches the light beautifully
