"It's Late"
12x9 Oil/ Linen
Anthony A. Gonzalez

I enjoyed painting this painting because it is very loose and I painted 
it quickly. I used mostly a bristle brush. It made the painting look very painterly.
And the model had a great look that made it all come together.
I'm having a workshop on the 25th at my studio.

"And there she was"
12x9 Oil/linen
Anthony A. González

The model is from Tijuana
I had little time to photograph her when I was there. 
I think she had a good stare and would make a good painting. 
I have only a few references of her that I would like to paint.

"Three Faces of Eve"
24x18 oil/linen
Anthony A. González

Now this painting was a bit of a challenge. I've been wanting to paint
this painting in particular for some time. The size of the canvas and 
figures were a challenge, but I like painting the figure at this size.
The warm colors had a good feel to them. The expressions on the models
were what I was looking for. All together I like the way 
the painting turned out.

"She did not know"
36x18 oil/linen
Anthony A. González

I was not sure if this painting would work. I wanted a
little mystery in her look. A cool palette would have worked, but I 
care more of the warm palette. Hope you'll like it.

"La Gitana"
40x30 Oil/Linen
Anthony A. González

I had a great time painting this one. First it is good size painting and 
the model looked great outdoors. It had so many textures to work with 
that it took me sometime to work out. I think that the model and costume
worked very well. I'm looking forward to another outdoor painting.

"Silent Stare"
12x9 Oil/Linen
Anthony A. González

It's great to start a New Year painting. I had no other reason than to 
just paint in my studio today.
This painting was meant to loosen me up after the long holidays.
I chose this painting because of her stare and contrast. I have always
liked to paint in a low-key light. It has a good dramatic effect. The 
colors are warm and the brush strokes are loose. I don't think a very
finished painting was necessary in this case.

"Over You"
12x9 Oil/ Linen
Anthony A, González

A painting that I enjoyed working. It has all that I like to work on.
The subject, color and attitude. There is so many ways to find expression in 
 women that can make a good painting. All it takes is skill to put it on canvas.
And that is what I'm working on.

A Workshop in January 17th - 18th at my studio.

" So What"
16x12 Oil/Linen
Anthony A. González

Finally I'm back working. It's been difficult to work these last few weeks. 
Hopefully I'll have new works up more often. 
In this painting I worked in deep dark warm colors and added a cool color for contrast.
I was able to do this because I added green and yellow to the blue.
Hope you will like this one.
