Oil block-in for 'Three Dog Day' by RK Schlueter

Oil on 24x32' canvas.
There is Something I love about a block-in. The paint is sketchy and not committed, the flow is loose and enthusiastic as there is much hope and anticipation for it's development. This painting is a commission piece that I've just completed, see finished below. I post the beginning stages because I like it as much as the finished painting and it speaks of a direction that I hope to develop, using a limited palette with select color choices.


  1. Nice, Rachel! Both block in and final painting are inspired!

  2. Wow, Rachel, This is a wonderful painting. So beautifully done.
