Things are starting to let loose and go airborne. I love fall : )
This is in remembrance.
two paintings with photo reference.
Can any painter do anything blurry without thinking of Gerhard Richter?
A fast and fun palette knife painting.
This version was painted over and ended up as the following (which I think I also painted over).
I will use them as studies for a larger piece, perhaps.
9″ x 12″ oil study
White herons fly among old oaks.
Wetland area where I like to hike. I combined palette knife strokes with some brushwork.
9″ x 12″
Abstracted scene of a threatenening sky at sunset over a meadow with trees in the distance.
Looks a bit like rain is coming.
9″ x 12″ study… A quiet place with many fallen dead trees in the water.
Often, I see Great Blue Herons standing in the debris, perfectly camouflaged, waiting to catch a meal. Also, white egrets and woodpeckers come here, and turtles sun themselves on top of the logs.
I left out a lot of details… the abstraction of the place was more important to me.
started using new limited color palette today…
