Painting #1 of Bullards Bar Resevoir
I have been painting up a storm lately and enjoying every bit of it. The weather has changed drastically in the last few days, my husband had gone up to the Sierra Buttes and there was about 4 inches of snow! I hope to get up there soon to paint.
Painting #2 of the North Yuba river
Painted saturated wet on wet. If you haven’t tried this technique you have to give it a try, it is absolutely thrilling. There is approximately a two hour window of painting time without having to wait for any layers to dry. It takes a bit to get used to the mushy appearance as you work it but to me it is like sculpting rather than painting. Once it is dry, you go back in to punch up your darks.
Painting #3 imagined river landscape
What a joy to paint this, I had no idea how it would turn out and I loved that fact, I prefer working this way.
Again another intuitive painting, I loved playing with the light.
Painting #5 of Bullards Bar Resevoir
The glow in the middle section is not quite as bright in reality in this photo, keep that in mind. I loved painting this, imagine that!
Painting #6 a semi-abstract
This painting wasn’t turning out as I imagined so I decided to abstract it to play around with shapes and values, nothing lost in an exercise of this nature. I have three more paintings to share, until next time!
