Good For The Goose- Gander

Close ups

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Mary was the hostess who graciously supplied the great reference photos!

I imagined this proud guy to be a gander so the title will make sense.

Some palette knife...some brush.
I tried to go by that saying, " a stroke laid is a stroke stayed." Which means after you lay a stroke down, don't spread it or fuss with it...period. Go ahead and make another stroke. I wasn't entirely successful at it but I tried.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

the evidence of things not seen."


  1. nice combination of cool and warm! lovely

  2. Beautiful painting, Dean! Wonderful colors..I love the little blue flowers.!!

  3. Exquisite, as always Dean. One of the thumbnails beneath this post is showing "Faraway Thoughts - Figurative." I don't remember seeing that piece (though I'm sure I must have), but it is so fabulous!

  4. This reminds me of the 4 toulouse geese we had.... umm.... MANY years ago. I loved watching them meander out by the goat barn. Very nice painting!

  5. Hi there Dean... Thought I'd drop by... and take a "gander"... at you alla prima gander!

    Wasn't disappointed! Loose... lively and painterly!

    "I wasn't quite successful"?????

    You stayed the course in the exercise... Sure looks "laid n' stayed" to me! Good one !

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  6. Well, it looks more like a gander to me Dean:)
    One has to be well self controlled to leave well enough alone if I may put it that way....
    Great job.

  7. Yes, I pick a gander, great work Dean. Yes, it is difficult to know when to stop.

  8. The way you focused the light in this piece is what makes it special to me.

  9. Dean, your goose is super! I love the warm colors.

  10. Ducky good love the blue peeking through in the background
