10 of Same (Ross Inlet)

Final Five

by on Feb.21, 2013, under 10 of Same (Ross Inlet)

Finished with the last 5 of the Same Composition series. It has been fun to work “outside the box” and to visualize a setting with different mind and eyes. These short studies will be helpful in future work habits in the studio where I find them to be an artist’s calisthenics before spending longer times with more major pieces.

Ross Inlet #5

by on Feb.10, 2013, under 10 of Same (Ross Inlet)

While driving home one afternoon last week during a cold spell I came upon fog being pressed down along the waterways (and roadway) and felt the view would be fun and a challenge. I first painted the landscape as could be clearly identified and followed with layering and blending while keeping a movement of light modulating through the layering.

With #4 I played with texturing the whole panel with Golden Modeling Paste and acrylics. Then, complimented with texture-painted rice paper for hills and foreground.

Ross Inlet #3

Liking the texture paper effect of #2, I decided to use it again. This time, I wanted to see how it would look if all the water was cut from the textured paper – which I found to give an eerie mysterious feel. I thought ‘morning’ and gave a dark morning sky with an awakening light starting over the background textures. The land and trees were painted with acrylics.

Ross Inlet #2 of 10

by on Feb.04, 2013, under 10 of Same (Ross Inlet)

Below is the second of the same scene at Ross Inlet. I opted for a warm landscape with my acrylics and to use some of my textured rice paper which had been created by cleaning my brushes while working on other paintings. The paper was used for the background hills, trees, land on the left, and foreground land.
