This weeks plein air still life painting.
Every week I am getting together with a friend to paint plein air still lifes. Heres a photo of the still life.
Study of the Table Setting
Here is the final painting of Noto.
In November of 2018 I traveled to Sicily to plein air paint and on a trip to Noto and Siracusa I took this photo. In 1693 the town of Noto was totally destroyed by a massive earthquake. It was rebuilt in the early 1700’s in the baroque style five miles from the original location of the town.
Here is my acrylic rendition of the photo and my palette.
Here’s my final painting for the Sonoma County Barn which I posted today on my website. I forgot to take a pic of the acrylic painting I did before I painted with the oil. My palette is Blue, red, green and orange which is a palette I have use before and love. It’s a rectangular quadratic from John Photoschnick’s book Limited Palette Unlimited Color. Below is the photo I took.
A photo I took at Dillon Beach in Sonoma County of two mothers with their children.
This is my acrylic painting of the photo. I made the two mothers bigger and moved them towards the front of the painting. I didn’t put a lot of the other figures in since the mothers are so compelling. #mothers,#beach,#Sonoma County.
In the fall of 2018 I traveled to the Tetons and Yellowstone. We stayed at Colter Bay which is a small bay off of Jackson Lake. This was a dramatic sunset one September night. I was afraid to try and paint it thinking it would be too hard, sky, reflections, mountains and boats. After I finished my Truchas painting I had a lot paint left on my palette so I thought I would paint something that I didn’t pre paint or draw. Below is the photo and the painting.
My palette for this painting is blue violet, blue green, yellow orange and red orange. #tetons#mountains#sunset#boats#reflections
In the fall of 2014 I traveled to Truchas, New Mexico to paint with my group. This is one of the photos I took there. Truchas is not far from Santa Fe or Taos but its elevation is 8000 ft.
This is my very simple acrylic painting of this photo.
