“Yellow Poppies” by Jody Balow
oil on canvas, 16” x 42”, 2016
Jody Balow is an artist living in Eau Claire. She teaches art at Regis Catholic High School and works on her personal art from her studio in Banbury Place.
“This painting was done with oil paint and a variety of palette knives. The canvas is covered with a dark gray acrylic gesso (primer). This provides depth as some of the dark comes through the layers of paint. When I paint using a palette knife I have a general idea of what my subject will be but I do not sketch it out before applying the paint.” – The Artist
