Seascape painting work in progress Cuchilla Alta Uruguay

This is the progress of an oil painting I started this past week. Based on one of the photos of Cuchilla Alta (Uruguay). This painting will go to the "Seascapes 2009 project" series and it is the first on a medium size canvas (22" x 22"); there are already some others belonging to this series but on smaller size canvas.
After applying the underpainting I worked on the sky and then the water. Next I will work on the surf and a little more on the water.
Thank you and see you soon!

Paintings of red poppies on yellow background.

I define my style as Modern Art, abstract expressionism. Many of the pieces are painted with palette knife and thick oil paint knife or brush strokes, impasto. Many are "alla prima", meaning that once the colors are applied there are no further modification or corrections.
I sell only original paintings and drawings. Every piece is unique, there is only one original in the whole world. Hand painted on hand stretched canvas on han made and assembled, wooden stretchers bars or prepared masonite board.
I hope you enjoy these two oil paintings!. Thanks, Monica.

Welcome to "Paintings by Monica Fallini"

I have been working on the "Daily paintings blog" for a year and a half and on the "Figurative art blog" for half a year now. This past week I decided that my regular size paintings deserve a space where I can show the progress of my work on a weekly basis and share the process of research and other stories behind the completed paintings.
A link will follow every image and by following it you will be able to learn more about each piece and purchase information.
I hope the visitors enjoy this blog and please submit your comments or questions! Thank you for your support of original art in general and my art in particular. Monica.
