Pictured below are two paintings I've done using Genesis heat set oil paints. I was fortunate to learn to paint at the Guild School in 2010, in two classes from the very talented and patient Jeff Wilkerson. We learned a seascape in one class and TWO English landscapes in the second one. Jeff made it a wonderful learning experience. I had been trying to paint a landscape for the longest time, and never could figure out what I was doing wrong. Jeff broke it down for us, telling us to paint the broad background areas as if we were just painting the side of a house. When we switched to smaller brushes, he told us it was like painting the trim of the house! The beauty of these paints is that they operate like oil paints but you dry them between each step with a heat gun, which literally cooks the paint within a minute on a tiny canvas. Genius, Genesis! The pictures are of the coast of Lake Michigan from north of Milwaukee Wisconsin, and one that is a commissioned piece. The lake painting is based on a photo I took, and the second one is taken from the emailed photo of the original painting, which is set behind the miniature. Enjoy!
