Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

FROM TOP: "Cody," and "Samson", both 5" x 7", acrylic on board, commissioned portraits (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

I used to hardly ever use white, tinting my paints with yellow, pink, or a soft green. I still don't use a whole lot of white, but the point I'm getting at here is that I am recognizing (or rather now Seeing) the softer variations in those lighter values. I see color saturation so easily, and it wasn't so tough to see deeper variations of purples, blues, greens and reds in the dark values of my paintings. But it was a huge challenge for me to linger over the areas of light. I think I'm starting to get it though!!

Thanks, as always, for following along. Yes, please forward these paintings to friends and family.
Enjoy your weekend - stay warm, dry, and safe.
See you Monday,
Kim
