Enchanted Oil Painting

Price:

Size: 36" x 48" x 1.5"D CANVAS SIZE

Original Oil Painting

This beautiful view has it all ~ turquoise water, a view of Capri, Sorrento architecture, and tour boats on Marincanto (Enchanted Sea.) Inspired by a watercolor she painted en plein air overlooking Marina Grande, Dorothy created this spectacular oil painting incorporating her friend Antonella's stories of bougainvillea and girlhood memories in Positano.

About the Paintings
I paint vivid, impressionistic oil paintings that capture the feeling of being alive. My joyful paintings are inspired by my travels on trails and beaches near my home in Virginia, to Italy, France and across the U.S. My technique is done with expressive color and loose, calligraphic brush strokes, in a wet-on-wet technique known as alla prima.  Alla prima comes from Italian, literally meaning "at first attempt" and is loosely applied to any painting that is done in a direct, expressive style.  

hanging your painting

I work with a limited 6-color spectral palette, painting over a color-toned, textured canvas reminiscent of my favorite pastel papers. While my inspiration begins with the scene, each painting is also fueled with a fusion of feelings present at the moment of its conception. It might be the marriage of a child, or the birth of a grandchild, or memory of a parent. The joy of life infused with my passion for living, in good times and through trials, heals the heart in each and every painting.

 

Hanging Your Painting
All my canvases are wired and ready to hang. To help keep your painting level, I recommend hanging your painting from two picture hanging hooks spaced apart on the wall.  


Framing

My oil paintings are offered both framed and unframed.  We are happy to help you find the perfect frame for your new painting. The larger paintings, which are done on 1-1/2" canvas, are best framed in floater frames, or left to hang unframed on the wall. 

Gold Black Float Frame

Floater frames are designed to cradle deep canvases. A small gap around the painting, allows the canvas to "float" in the frame. Floater frames can be made in a variety of finishes, including gold, silver, black, white, and in any type of hardwood and stain finish. I am partial to the gold and black shown here. However, your decor may require a special touch, which we are happy to recommend.


In the Best Light
DAYLIGHT   Your painting will look different depending on the changing quality of the surrounding light. Natural ambient light will create a nice feel for your painting during daylight hours, as the colors subtly change throughout the day.

AT NIGHT   Art galleries use warm or cool-toned spot lighting to accentuate the colors in the painting, and they usually intensify the light on the painting's center of attention. You can imitate this effect in your own home by installing halogen or LED directional spot lighting in the ceiling above your painting. These lights are surprisingly inexpensive to install. An electrician can install them in a few hours. If you wish you can purchase the fixtures and bulbs yourself online. 

Use the Right Bulbs
The wrong color bulb can cause your painting to look "muddy." Use cool lighting to illuminate a painting that has predominately cool colors, and use warm lighting on a painting with mostly warm colors. 

Many houses are already fitted with recessed ceiling fixtures. These can be adapted to directional spot lighting by a handyman. Even without direct lighting on your painting, your artwork will still look good with nearby incandescent lighting. 

Enjoy!

Canvas

Works on Canvas are generally more durable than works on paper, and DO NOT require glass. Dorothy Fagan Collection fine art canvas prints are coated with a satin finish, non-yellowing UV resistant varnish for protection, durability, and long life. 

For a contemporary, gallery look, your canvas print can be hung "Gallery Wrap" style, with the image mirrored on the edge of the 1.5" deep stretcher bars . If you prefer, create a create an edge frame appearance with a solid edge color to match other design elements in your room.  Your finished piece will be wired and ready to hang.

If you prefer to use a frame, the frames we offer are heavy-weight solid wood construction. Contemporary in style, the black, natural, or white blend with most decors. Dorothy is personally fond of the black float frame for canvases. However, if the natural finish is preferred for your selected art piece, they are an excellent choice.

If you prefer to have your own framer create a custom frame for your new artwork, Dorothy recommends the 3/4" deep stretchers, as this shallower depth will give you a wider selection of mouldings at the framer.

" I must say the pictures on-line do not do it justice! It is so vivid and rich, it literally took my breath away when I saw it. It also has an ethereal feel to it, almost like a fairy tale. I could not be more pleased with my purchase"   ~ Linda Tennessee
