Helen's Copper Pot by Cathy Amendola

24×28 oil on canvas

Our Art Guild in Orange, Connecticut…invited Helen Van Wyk to give a painting demonstration…

She was as amazing, talented and funny as you have seen on TV….

My Helen’s Copper Pot was after HER copper pot, it was a wonderful evening and very inspirational

My painting style is described as, Classical Academic painting in oils, in the Italian Renaissance Manner …I incorporates elements into my paintings like that of the old Masters. (I use a graph on my reference and canvas,
then a charcoal sketch on the canvas, step #2 an underpainting and finally an oil painting) I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you for your visit…
