Fred Ochi Studies

October 20, 2016

First off, today starts the fall art show for the Nampa Art Guild at Karcher Mall. I think it will be a good one, and I recommend you go take a look if you are an art lover. I expect there will be several collectible pieces at reasonable prices. Art can be a great investment.


Secondly, we painted Fred Ochi studies at the studio today. We went wet into wet to begin and finished throwing white acrylic paint to indicate snow falling. Mr. Ochi painted a good many barns and ski scenes in and around Idaho Falls when I was young, and I have always admired his art. I don't know exactly now he painted his white snow, but I find it easiest with acrylic gesso. He may have used a gouache, or straight white watercolor pigment, but . . . his paintings were pleasing to the eye and we tried to come close.


Liesa and Kirsty's came out very successfully. 


Mine was fun too. We need to find a better way to flip paint. We tried stiff bristles, soft bristles,  . . .  Still, they came out looking good; not exactly and Ochi, but he might be pleased with the efforts. No, we did not sign anything. We were trying to copy Mr. Ochi because we like his art and wish we could own one of his originals.
