Sea & Sky

I have finished two more paintings recently. These are continuations of a theme I started last spring. That theme is essentially a study in atmosphere and emptiness in landscape painting.

Both paintings are acrylic paint on plexiglass. “Cloud and Sea” is 20″ x 20″ and Water’s Lullaby is 18″ x 18″. I think the cloud painting is the most successful, it has a moody ethereal felling that I like. Which painting do you prefer and why?

More and more I want to reduce my imagery down to a minimal form and allow the paint to be the subtle star of the show. If only I didn’t have to work a day job! But the isolating night is a pretty ideal setting for this type of imagery… the trick is staying motivated and awake.

  1. Both of these are very beautiful, though I have to say I like the second one better. It has something very clean to it which I like and I also really like bluey green colours. Good work.


  2. I actually like the sea more but that doesn’t mean the sky is not absolutely beautiful! Both of them are so nice, I’m drooling looking at them – so gorgeous. Your very good at creating a mood in images too 🙂


  3. Brian,
    I am profoundly drawn to the images together. There is something about the soft contrasts of texture and nuance of mood that is exquisite. I have kept the image open on my computer for weeks. So moving.
