the little meadow reworked

meadow reworked (3)

I decided to let loose with the paint over pretty much the whole scene.  It has different colors with a slightly different ratio of sky to land and other changes of a “bustin’ loose” sort.  This acrylic painting on canvas panel measures 18 x 14 inches.

I like it a lot better than before.  I knew I would do this at some point, repaint it using a loaded brush.  I just didn’t know when I’d do it.  And now I’ve done it.

another crazy little color study

garden color study (3)

I like my crazy little color studies for up-coming largish landscapes.  This one measures 13.5 x 9 inches.  Unfortunately they are nearly impossible to photograph properly.  They are hard to “read,” as it is, their whole raison d’etre being color.  Que sera sera.  What is most interesting about the study — the character of the color relationships — is also the feature that causes the photography challenge, that and Mother Nature’s grey mantle this morning, and my general naivety about the technical aspects of photography.

Later on, when it really matters, I’ll have to rephotograph all the finished works (not the studies).  I just post the studies and the work in progress stuff as a record for myself and hopefully as entertainment for my internet friends.

The study is painted using acrylic paints on unstretched canvas primed with clear acrylic.
