This is so cool, I want this on my wall!
217_2016 Watercolor / Fabriano artistico satinized – ca. 76 x 56 cm / 29.9 x 22.0 in / ´The Burning House II´
I had to paint this again. After I have been really satisfied with my small watercolor-sketch I wanted to try a large format today. I stood up extra early today to make sure that I can finish it before I have to go to my work. I am getting used to the beautiful Fabriano Artistico paper and I used a bigger brush. Compared to painting smaller formats these large paintings are more physical in the painting-process. I feel like I have been in the gym after painting this one. I don´t think the result is perfect, but I am satisfied. I will try to paint more of the larger formats this month to get my brushwork loose. I have a bigger amount of sheets in stock now so…

I love these paintings fom yubagold blog, especially the third.
painting #1 on Arches 140# 7 x 9 inches
This scene was a difficult one because of the steep trail leading down to the river and the fact that I didn’t have sun on the river for the first 90 minutes, I painted basically in the shade.
what my first scene looked like with sun
painting #2 on Fabriano 300# 11 x 14 inches
I struggled with this painting because of having such a complex scene with no focal point (hoping for a light source) I was all over the place and couldn’t focus. In other words, I didn’t have a clear path to follow.
my scene was beautiful but without sun, it was a bit dreary
painting #3 on Saunders 200# 11 x 14 inches
I then spotted the sun shining further on down the river, all I had to do was scoot my butt a 3/4 turn and…

I love this scene.
Finally got around to painting a 10 minute painting for my winter challenge making it my 10th painting so far.
This scene is of Lake Josephine located in Glacier National Park in Montana. The reference photo used was originally a spring or summer time scene, but I caused a winter explosion and now there is snow everywhere. More than likely you will see this scene again as it is in a green setting, cause I just like it, that’s why.
Photo reference used by Photographer Tam-tam from PMP. Painted using acrylic on 5 x 7 canvas.
Till next time….
I love these painting, such a cool mist/fog effect 🙂
Meditation on Floating Pine needles #2 is the second of this year’s trilogy of interpretations based on the pond in July. Early July, with its dusting of pollen, and scattering of flotsam forms the subject. The challenge is the reflections seen through the somewhat granulated surface. I chose layered spattering to suggest the pollen, and thin glazes to control the color. When I ask myself why dusty pond surfaces attract me, I have two answers. First, figuring out the visual subtlety excites me, and second, the partly obscured reflections parallel the unknowns in life. We only ever get a glimpse. Details below. Enjoy.
