A Pond in Summer

I’m practicing my trees. We will be moving to an area with more hills and trees. Cincinnati here I come! This is why my blog has been quiet, moving is too much work!

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 1)

I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.

Send in the Clouds (WIP1)

image

These clouds were a bit more complexed formation than the clouds I tend to emulate. I needed to add fresh paint to my palette, therefore it wasn’t as thick as the last painting. I need to start opening my palette a couple hours early for the fresh Golden Open Acrylics. Strange isn’t it! Although with the smaller clouds it wasn’t such a bad idea to have thinner paint. 5×7″ canvas board.
