“Frosted Wheats #2” WIP 01

I felt like doing another painting of snow covered hay bales, and make it bigger but still small. I’m gettting warmed up right now from after my hiatus, and that makes it time for exploration. This way I can do more quicker.

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.

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.
