Abstract Landscape – Summer Daisies

I did a small 5 x 7 painting this weekend. It was over so quickly! I’ve had the sketch ready for a while – it was nice to finally get to it.

I think I will do another 5 x 7 next weekend, and I will show it first in my newsletter before I post it here. I want to at least occasionally talk about things first in my newsletter – or what’s the incentive to sign up?

And then back to some larger work :-)¬† I have a whole bunch of ideas and sketches in various stages that I can start finishing up. One of them is another 24 x 30 that I’m really excited about – it’s the wonderful oranges, greens and greys of a rainy fall day – but I think I’m going to do a few smaller ones first.

Abstract Landscape – Summer Morning

Yay for long weekends! :-)

I have finished the painting. I’m calling it Summer Morning¬† – that’s the feeling I get from this scene. It’s a little humid, the rising sun is burning off the mist. The leaves aren’t all green – they know fall is coming.

Stay tuned for the next wip! I had such fun with this and I really liked seeing my progress over the many sessions, I think I will do it again.

New Abstract Landscape – WIP 12

I got a fair bit done this weekend. I have only a little more of the background to go and then I can do the rest of the foreground leaves and then finally the trunk – yay :-)

I can’t believe I started this on January 19th – it’s been nearly 2 months! I want to make 20 paintings this year but I think I will be a little behind :-)
