I am painting a couple of atmospheric paintings inspired by Lake Coeur d’Alene. I was there on a weekend outing and saw some pretty spectacular clouds over the lake. The lighting was very dramatic and inspirational.This is the first painting I have done, it is 16’x16″. I am pretty pleased with the outcome but it doesn’t begin to do my memory justice. I will post the next one when I complete it as well.
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
Moonlight is mesmerizing, it’s not news that it has a romantic feel but there is something so hypnotic about a big moon casting shadows and lighting up the darkness with such interesting and subtle colors. I have done very few moon paintings but it is something I always mean to put time into.
This weekend I was working on some atmospheric cloudscapes, nothing unusual for me. I was also unpacking boxes in my new studio space, more on that at a later date. I found some small boards that I had readied for painting at least a year ago and packed away. So I decided to play around with some nocturnal imagery. Ultimately I want to do some really good sized paintings but for now it is nice to get some forward progress into the night.
Welcome spring! Here are some small paintings I did in the first half of March. These are all 10″x10″ acrylic paintings on plexiglass.
I am looking forward to the longer days and much more sunshine!
I just posted these 10″x 10″ paintings on Ugallery. It is an art website that sells and markets artwork. They take a 50% commission but they also do help get your work seen. As paintings pile up I am starting to look at more ways to sell my work. I really enjoy having my paintings in a physical gallery but these days there are a lot of other options!
This 36″x36″ show will be part of the POAC members show in Sandpoint, Idaho. It will be on display until June 5th at the Columbia Bank in town.
Here is a collection of 10’x10′ studies I have painted this week. Lake Pend Oreille is frozen along much of it’s shoreline reluctantly giving up the ice to March. Giant clouds roll across the landscape in a constant dramatic shift. Photos don’t seem to do the beauty justice and my paintings barely hint at the spectacle…. we do what we can.
Clouds are endlessly fascinating to me, particularly when there is a bit of blue Sky visible! These three paintings are 10″x10″ cloud studies I recently finished. I am hoping to paint some large cinematic skies I the coming months, I will do a lot of small studies first!
