Painting #1 Shenanigan Flat
This is one of my favorite paintings that feels totally me, the style and approach that I truly love to paint in. I am thinking that this scene on the North Yuba river enables me to naturally paint this loose and minimal. For some reason not every scene that I tackle enables me to naturally paint in this style. At this point it is a mystery, perhaps I am at a creative cusp of sorts.
Painting #2 North Yuba river
I don’t exactly love this one but it was a good in between paintings exercise. Painted saturated wet in wet.
Painting #3 North Shenanigan Flat
See! Easy with this scene! Drives me nuts how this view enables my inner creative to kick in but with a more detailed view, I turn it off. If anyone have any idea why it falls short when I approach a more detailed view, give me your thoughts. I think I’ll figure it out eventually.
Painting #4 Mist over Sand Pond
I wasn’t sure if I went far enough with this one, for now I’m leaving it alone.
Painting #5 North Yuba river
I slap dashed this one hoping for looseness and feeling though the river doesnt “sit down” on the right side as it should, easy fix.
Painting #6 Of Bullards Reservoir
This one is a bit too tame for me but it does have a glow that I really like.
Happy painting! Have a wonderful weekend folks!
