Bright Brothers, Oil and Acrylic on Canvas by Penny Otwell

2,850.00

Otwell paints with acrylic, oil and watercolor. She is known for her palette knife painting in an ala prima style of thick paint. Her use of color is what collectors say they like best about her work.  She is a self-taught painter whose Mother was a professional artist in Canada at the same time as the well-known “Group of Seven.” 

"The possibilities are endless but it is my task to discover a road map through each painting.  I allow the painting to guide me, one step at a time, and am good at not thinking too much while painting.  Afterwards, I take a cold, hard look at the work done.  Moving through each piece like this allows for plenty of failure but this is the key to learning and growing.  I teeter on the balance beam between expressiveness, boldness, accuracy, detail and feeling.  When I play it safe, I find a piece boring.  I must totally engage in the act of painting to make each piece come alive. 

I am always pushing towards the truth of what I see and what I feel and I have learned to trust in this process."
