August Already!

Painting #1 Mendocino #6 11 x 14 inches

I have been working on a series based on my trip to the Mendocino coast back in May. The above painting is on 300# Arches. I am not a fan of 300# simply because to me the paper soaks up the paint and the colors dull down. I received 4 sheets by accident from my favorite supplier and was told to keep it when I contacted them about the mistake.

I have been watching videos by David Dunlop and he mentioned painting on 300# that had been first treated with acrylic gloss medium and I decided to give it a try and I love the outcome.

Painting #2 Mendocino #5 11 x 14 inches

Another one in the series.

Painting #3 Mendocino Skies #4 11 x 14 inches

This is one of my favorites of the series.

Painting #4 Evening Light at Lake Francis 11 x 14 inches

I think that I will give this another try, the colors aren’t the best for a feeling that unifies. Always another day and painting.

Painting #5 Clarity Rising 11 x 14 inches

Just throwing paint around hoping and searching for something different.

Painting #6 Mendocino #7 11 x 14 inches

Another one on 300# Arches primed with acrylic gloss medium. Looks like I will be buying more 300# Arches! So darn expensive though.

Painting #7 Given 11 x 14 inches

An abstract for the bunch, I love exploring shapes and colors.

Painting #8 untitled wip 11 x 14 inches

This one is a wip and I will be taking my time to finish it up.

My husband and I will be leaving for Lassen National Park on Thursday. We will be going on the Indian motorcycle and camping, my favorite way to have fun! We both are going to be celebrating our birthdays at Lassen. His birthday is on the 9th and mine is on the 11th. I am so excited to say the least. Next post will be about our adventures at Lassen. Until then, thank you for stopping by.

    1. Thank you Yolande, sometimes I get in a hurry and fail to share my process, I need to take more time in the future. I can’t wait to hear about what you think of David Dunlop’s videos. I really appreciate them because he delves heavily into the creative process. He is a fantastic artist and teacher. Thanks again for your comments.
