Oktoberfest study: two girls

Oil on canvas panel, 20 x 20 cm, ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] I haven’t managed to make very many daily paintings this past week.

Munich - Wienerplatz

Daily painting: Munich Wienerplatz

Munich Study – Wienerplatz, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 cm, ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] I love this square, typical for Munich, punctuated with the church spire and a maypole. I’m currently working on a larger version of this scene. — Greetings to anyone here from ICLW!


Daily painting: pumpkins at the farmers market

Market pumpkins, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 cm, ©2010 Julie Galante. This original painting is for sale. I love autumn at the farmers market.

little canvases

Stocked up

I love starting the day with a delivery of art supplies to unpack. So much artistic potential! This time the delivery was mostly little canvases and canvas boards. I started the practice of daily painting about three months ago, and I’ve found it to be something I want to continue for a while. I enjoy […]

Munich study: Market at Mariahilfplatz, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 cm. ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] We are having such a beautiful fall here in Munich – crisp, sunny days along with deeply colored leaves.

Daily Painting: plenty of new inspiration from Oktoberfest

Dirndl Study #5, oil on canvas board, 18 x 24 cm. [SOLD] Between my husband and I we managed to take over 1,500 photos at Oktoberfest this year. Yikes! I’m sure it will end up being a lot fewer once I sort out the throw-aways, but still I should end up with lots to work […]
