It is summer after all! There are only so many for each of us, word is less every year…
This is an 8″x8″ acrylic painting. I have always liked tonalism and an overcast morning really displays that kind of magic. Now that summer is finally here we are seeing beautiful bright mornings, I will play around with some of that imagery, never enough summer days in this short life.
I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.
Four very small pieces, 6″ x 6″, acrylic paintings. Continuing on with smaller art due to work space limitations. I am planning on doing some 10″ pieces next as these little guys don’t allow for room to roam.
Excuse the song title, it is a good one though!
Just for fun posting the most recent skull paintings together. Both 10″ x 10″ acrylic. Hopefully I will be back behind the brush soon!
This is the fifth painting in a little series of fish paintings. 10″x10″ acrylic paintings.
This one is particularly loose and free. I rather quickly developed some bold blends and marks and knew I could only muddle what I had… Knowing when to stop!
These are two acrylic paintings I did a number of years ago. The subject was a very basic white dress, an old wedding dress.
The surfaces are heavily textured with cracks and built up modeling paste. This is a method of painting I have left in the past. The results could be interesting and organic but chaotic!
This is a large water painting I did. The best part about it is the reflected ceiling lights captured in this photograph. If only it always had intense reflections!
These two paintings have now been completed. I recently applied a couple coats of varnish and took this photograph in my studio.
Since I am moving these photos may be the last taken in my studio. For the near future I will be without a dedicated work space. I will probably be working on smaller pieces… I must keep working!
