Original.  We walk the beach early in the morning. You always see something different.  The LaJolla beach is popular with kayak rentals and scuba divers.  That is why I stopped and took  a ton of pictures of a cute little old man and this row boat  The cute little old man was edited out this time.  Last time, he was included in two paintings and they took forever to sell. I thought this boat deserved to float on its own.  We will see.

Original.  Beach portrait !  The Hotel Del on Coronado Island in San Diego CA is a very popular destination, which was the backdrop in this portrait (grin).  Marilyn Monroe filmed "Some Like It Hot" with two other guys (grin again).  Plenty of sun is a good excuse for sunglasses but if you know me, I like to paint sunglasses.  This was an easy one.

GYPSY

"Gypsy"
Original
14"x11" 
Charcoal wash on 400#Bristol Plate
Price $595
©Nancy Tokos 2014

Charcoal wash technique was perfect for this figurative study, mostly in shadow. This is a mixture of charcoal sticks and powder. The velvet shawl detail brought added interest because of the depth of blackness achieved with mere charcoal powder. 


This is an original work of art by California artist, Nancy Tokos, member American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America.  Charcoal on paper. Safely packaged and ready to frame but please allow 1-5 days for shipping. Charcoal paintings + drawings are very handsome in a wooden frame, my favorite is barnwood found at Frame USA http://www.frameusa.com/.

* colors, values, may vary slightly between the actual painting and the image on your computer due to my digital camera settings, time of day the photograph is taken and the monitor you are looking at right now. *

Price $950

Original.  "All white with wispy plumes on head and back in breeding season" ... according to Wikipedia.  My story is a lot more interesting but actually, has nothing to do with the painting.  The painting was inspired by a terrific photograph.  The photographer is a friend that goes back to school days.  But I never knew he was so talented !  Thanks, Frank
