Through The Trees (1.5 x 1 inches; watercolor)
Got in a little painting today (no pun intended)! ☺
If you look carefully through the trees you will see a distant mountain range. I have also completed another one of these little gems, but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see it!
Remember when the Peanuts character, Charlie Brown, got a rock instead of candy while trick-or-treating? Well, I got a rock…and I painted it!
The gif image shows the steps of the painting process. The smooth stone was first primed with white gesso (3 layers), then painted with acrylic paints. I sealed the water surface with gloss medium and will coat the rest of the rock with matte medium. This should seal it sufficiently for an outdoor display. A very enjoyable painting experience!
Autumn Field (3 x 3 inches; oil)
Completed my last oil painting for an upcoming community festival.
This old feed mill is located in Drake, Missouri.
My latest watercolor painting is an imaginary scene.
Autumn Forest (9 x 12 inches; watercolor)
I was asked to do a painting for someone and here is one of the attempts. Not quite what the person was looking for, but I like it. I have this one framed and it’s hanging in my office.
Aspen Way (12 x 16 inches; watercolor)
Stopped to take this photo while driving through Hermann, Missouri in the Fall of 2012.
Autumn Splendor (5 x 7 inches; watercolor)
Painted this watercolor in 2011. This is an imaginary scene.
The original painting resides in a private collection.
