Helen Koehler’s blog

This is the launch of my new blog featuring contemporary landscape paintings of my surroundings, and images made of wool and cotton and which depict worlds that reside in my imagination.  For the past year and a half I have been employing an oil painting technique learned from New York painter, Christie Scheele.  Layers of light are built on dark gesso with paint mixed with a cold wax medium and softened with inexpensive brushes from the hardware store.  These are the basics of her technique.  I have been working to create my own voice with this technique by experimenting with colors, local subject matter, and manipulating brushstrokes to create a variety of textures and edges.
