Light on the Yuba

 

I have had an obsession with light ever since I can remember. I wanted to keep a minimal approach with these paintings, it is all about the light and feeling of the river. I painted this rather quickly because I had to run multiple fans in my art room. This is on Arches 300# a quarter sheet.

I also painted this one quickly because the paint was drying super fast. Again a minimal approach. Also from the same area on the river. This is on Fabriano Soft press, and I am in love! Until I get more Lanaquelle paper that is.

This painting was started last week and I fished it today. It was painted about 80% saturated wet on wet and I finished it up wet on dry. I used Saunders Waterford I think.

I have discovered that I can post from my tablet easier than from my computer, and it is fast!

**A word about photos. The paintings and photos on my blog are mine, taken by me and copying them would be stealing from me. If you find a photo that you would like to copy or use, I request that you ask me for permission and I expect you to give me full credit for my own photo. Thank you so very much.

    1. So good to hear, I think that this has been my underlying goal and desire for years and didn’t know how to do it or if I could. Every time I get caught in a very detailed painting, it feels bereft of feeling and leaves me bored. So when I am able to do something of this caliber, it feels like I have come home. 🙂

  1. Yummy colors – I love the blues and purples with the golden light. I actually managed a little landscape watercolor on my vacation, which I’ll post later, but wanted to let you know your work inspires me!
