Thinking of Sunshine

img_3276I’m thinking of sunshine and flowers, while our first blizzard hits. Yesterday our yard was a healthy green. Today it wears a blanket of snow, but it’s pretty too.
The first image is the under painting, and the second is the finished work. 8″x10″ acrylic on canvas board.

Next “Valley at Enemy Creek” WIP01

  
I want to do another version of “Valley of Enemy Creek” It was one of my best projects and I want to be able to exhibit the work.

I started again with a study because I might as well make some adjustments to the composition, since it doesn’t need to be exactly as it is in real life.
Mainly I move the tree to the right, and changed the direction of the water in the foreground. The first painting I did is in recent posts.

The study is 9×12″ and the final will probably be 18×24″.

Frost Fest Plein Air (Part 2)

Acrylic on canvas board 8″x10″
This weekend we had a Frost Festival in our town which included a Plein Air event. It was a bit gloomy but we still had snow on the ground.

My daughter and I painted with artists in our area, inside the club house at the Dakota Nature Park, where we had a nice view of frozen ponds and bridges to paint our pictures. It was a fun day for all of us! We got our paintings done before lunch and met everyone for BBQ.

The Valley of Enemy Creek (WIP02) Study

(Click the Image to Enlarge)
I got a little more done today. This rugged terrain, spotted with cedar trees is very interesting to paint. The distant land in background is behind the veil of humidity for depth. I hope I will have time to work on it again tomorrow.

Blue Skies #1 (WIP 1)

image

I designed a sky that would complement the field with a group of trees that I plan to paint for this picture. I played with positive and negative space until I was satisfied with the composition.
6×8″ stretched canvas with gallery edges.
