Shore Acres Garden Pond

by on Dec.04, 2014, under Acrylic Paintings

A couple of months ago in September I was working on a 16×20 canvas with a vague idea that was ‘going no where.’ I began to see a reflective pond with many colors taking my memory to Shore Acres Garden pond as a theme. I recalled I had a couple of reference pics similar to what was developing. One was found and it assisted in creating a basic structure as far as foreground, middle and rear. Colors, textures, and structure became invented. A fun acrylic painting!

Shore Acres Overlook South

by on Nov.30, 2014, under Oil Painting, Plein Air, Sketches, Studio Stuff

Last Tuesday’s plein air outing had cool and windy conditions dis-allowing for painting but prompting time for gathering reference material for studio. After gathering info at the end of Cape Arago highway, Cape Arago, I made a stop at Shore Acres for an hour or so. Today was studio work with pic and sketch off cliffs of Shore Acres looking south toward Whiskey Run. The Pacific was wide awake!

The following is a pic – a sketch – and oil painting (16×20) on stretched canvas:
