Painting #1 Imagined landscape on Arches 140#
I have been enjoying more warmth in my paintings lately. I am a lover of blue but want to reach out towards a little heat. This particular scene is in Colusa County on a day trip with my big brother Doug. I am working more and more from my imagination and memory rather than photos. Easy for me now that I am willing to let loose and not rely on relentless detail.
Painting #2 Remembered Landscape on Arches 140#
I don’t think that I’ll ever tire of this scene. I am intrigued by the light and the overall feeling.
Painting #3 Sand Pond on Lanaquarelle 140#
One of my favorite scenes on my favorite paper. I didn’t plan on that golden pyramid shape in the background, it “snuck” in but I would like to think that it is a sunlit mountain, let the imagination work.
Painting #4 Imagined Landscape on Arches 140#
Basically the technique with these imagined landscapes is working wet on wet and building a scene intuitively.
Painting #5 Abstract
I love abstracts and when I paint them I work entirely by intuition.
Painting #6 Imagined Landscape Arches 140#
I had the most difficult time getting the colors to match up with my painting. I do believe that my photo on Instagram is much better.
I don’t have as much time this week to paint because I will be running into town twice this week. I have to pick up a painting from my framer that I won via ArtistNetwork. It is an original painting by Thomas Schaller, one of my favorite watercolorists. Talk about exciting to have won something, a first time for me. Happy painting folks!
