Paper Painting - Walking the Dog

Paper Painting – Walking the Dog

I experimented more with painting with paper this week.  It’s relaxing to rip paper and fit it onto the form that I have pre-painted.  I like searching through the paper to find the ones that have the colors that I think will work for the shades of color I need.

It’s an interesting departure from painting.

Walking the Dog”, 9″x12″, paper over acrylic paint on canvas board.

Talking BeagleA few days ago I posted “The Talking Beagle”, an acrylic painting that I started during art class last week.  (See that post here.)  I finished it this week.

I just love the way beagles “talk” and when I saw the photo of this little guy baying I knew it would make a great painting.

“The Talking Beagle”, acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″, available for $225.

20140926_100913Last week at my evening adult classes I started a painting.  Sometimes when I feel that everyone is on track with their paintings I will paint during the adult art classes.  On Wednesday and Thursday I worked on “The Talking Beagle”.  It is an acrylic painting on 16″x20″ canvas.   I have always loved the way Beagles “talk”-they throw their heads back and just let go!  I love it.

This painting is about 75% finished.  I still need to get in some details and the finish the face.  I am hoping to get to that during this weeks class.

Oxbow Sunflower CollageI spent a delightful morning painting a sunflower field at a beautiful farm north of town yesterday.

It has been awhile since I have been out to paint and I had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed it.

As with most Plein Air paintings that I do this one is almost finished but will get a little adjustment now that I have it in the studio.  You can see the step-by-step progress in this collage.

Sunflower View I  is an oil on canvas panel measuring 11″ x 14″.  SOLD!

TVOR Demo Painting Completed

I took a little time to work on the demonstration painting that I did last week at The Village at Orchard Ridge. (Read about that here and here.)  Often when doing a demo painting I get it about 75-80% completed.  I like to take questions so I talk while painting and I can’t always concentrate on details to finish up.   That is what happened with this one.  I used a larger canvas than usual because I wanted everyone to be able to see it so in the 50 minutes that I painted I did get a lot done but still needed to wrap it up.

Here are the photos side by side to see the difference.

2014-09-17 13 43 35Yesterday I met the nice young man who was the recipient of the painting that I did recently of the “View from Harrisonburg”.  (You can see the step by step photos here.)   The painting was a graduation gift as he just graduated from JMU.

And he wanted to take a photo with me when he picked it up.  And he promised to send me a photo of where he hangs the painting.

TVOR Demonstration Painting

TVOR Demonstration Painting

Here is the painting that I did for the demonstration at The Village at Orchard Ridge on Tuesday night.   (See yesterday’s post.)

I worked in acrylic on an 18″x24″ canvas.  This was a one hour talk so I did not complete the painting but rather laid in the color and got a few details in so that they could see the process.  I will take some time soon to finish it up but for an hour I got a great deal done.
