Help us Welcome Bucks County Gallery of Fine Art

Sketch Cooperman 1

We want to welcome a new gallery to our Team Senkarik family! Bucks County Gallery of Fine Art is located at 77 West Bridge Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Howard Cooperman, the owner, is delightful and we are so excited to be working with him. This opens a whole new door of subject matter for me, it’s going to be fun. The first piece is an old farmhouse courtyard near New Hope. I’ve taken artistic liberty and moved Bromley Mill, a local landmark at Cuttalossa Farm, into the background. My first step is to make a pen and ink sketch. A road map, so to speak.

SC1713 Step 1

Moving to the canvas I begin by establishing perspective lines for the foreground building. Then the main elements are drawn with a brush dipped in a thin oil wash of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.

SC1713 Step 3

The Mill is a challenge, especially getting the perspective on the water wheel correct.

SC1713 Step 4

Cuttalossa Farm is well-known for its Miniature Babydoll Sheep so I just had to add a few grazing in the meadow. If you would like to see any of the images enlarged just click on the picture.

The basic shapes of the flowers are indicated and labeled. So we’re all sketched up and ready to start painting. Hope you’ll come back tomorrow to follow along. And….. if you are anywhere near New Hope, PA please stop in the Bucks County Gallery of Fine Art and say HI to Howard. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik

    Wow! I’m honored to have you write such kind words in your introduction of our partnership Mikki. I can’t wait to see what the next scene will be. The Bucks County Playhouse, the New Hope/Lambertville Bridge, or the Parry Mansion?

    Whatever it is, I couldn’t be more excited.
