1 - Creation XIII - Small Oil Painting Study
Creation XIII - Colour Study
Original oil painting
by Vincent Keeling
"As for my next painting, this is another one from my Creation series of roses. Now I know it's sometimes difficult to judge the scale from digital images, and you might be confused into thinking this is the epic piece for over the couch you've been waiting for. Alas this is not the case, as this is only a modest canvas, but for that I think it packs a visual punch above it's weight, and don't forget there are plenty of nooks, crannies, alcoves and bedroom walls that also deserve a little art love too.
And for those of you, who want the big centre piece for over the couch, fear not, for this was actually painted as many of my small paintings are, as a kind of colour study with a big painting in mind. And that large version is nearing completion. Now of course, this phrase nearing completion, doesn't carry the meaning you might come to expect, for us oil painters are an antiquated bunch, running on an antiquated clock, that in truth hasn't changed much in five hundred years.
Thus the translation of "nearing completion", really means although I started it back in June, it's still three of four months off. Another week or two for finishing touches, and then she needs to sit quietly in the corner of the studio, and dry in some mysterious alchemical old-worldly way, before being safely varnished and presented to the world.
Keep an eye out in the first quarter of 2022 for the big one, whereas this little painting is varnished and all ready to go!
