Portrait Oil Painting a Day by Fred Bell 6x5"

Title: 01.30.09 ........ Size: 6 x 5" Acrylic on board
Artist: Fred Bell

This painting was done in an open figure class I attend on Friday mornings. An open figure class is one where there is no teacher, just a nude model and artists. This is an experiment with portraiture. My mind is not made up about it yet.

Window in Sun Daily Painter Fred Bell

Title: 01.29.09 Window ...... Size: 6 x 5.5" Oil on cradled board
Artist: Fred Bell Price: E-mail for availability

This painting was done from imagination. I am thinking about Summer I guess. When thinking up ideas for these paintings I can tell what I am thinking about or feeling by the subject matter I choose and the way I paint it. Judging from this painting I think I am in a pretty good mood. Everything is going my way except the weather.

I applied the paint with a palette knife and brush. I like the feeling of swimming around in the paint. I like an ocean of it. Sometimes I apply the paint with a knife because it is easier to get a lot onto the canvas. I either leave it as is or move it around with my brush. I like the feeling of the paint almost being out of control.

Daily Oil Painting Street Lamp Fred Bell


Title: Street Lamp 01.28.09 Size: 6 x 5" Oil on board
Artist: Fred Bell $100. E-mail for purchase. fred@fredbellpaintings.com

This street light is right outside my studio window. When I started it I was going to make is very dark against the back lit sky. As I worked I thought about the lamp being in the sun and how I am sick of winter. Thats when I started in with the warmer colors and a more summery look.

I am always looking to exchange blog links with quality artists. Send me an e-mail with your blog address. I respond quickly.

Daily Painting Sunny Awning

Title: Awning 01.27.09 Size: 6 x 5.5" Oil on board
Artist: Fred Bell For purchase, please e-mail me about availability.

I'm not going to include a "buy now" button for a while. These paintings, many, are being placed in galleries and it is getting too confusing to keep track of inventory. When these paintings are in galleries they sell for more than I have been listing them and it is not fair to those who bought them in a gallery.
