I am getting very close to being done this one... a little more on the waterfall in the middle, and a touch more on the water to the left. I am still contemplating adding a little more white to the water/snow below. Then... just to determine where to hang it! I don't do abstract-y paintings often, and I have to admit that it was a nice break from the more realistic style that I find that I do.
I got lots more done over the last couple days on this painting... I can actually see it being complete soon! There is lots of gold and silver interference paint used (very hard to photograph) but looks super cool in person. I am hoping to finish this weekend.
I am using a fairly limited palette: ivory black, paynes grey, transparent red earth, titanium white, yellow ochre, gold ochre, and cobalt blue.
Has it really been a month since my last post? My goodness... where did July go? Life has kept me busy with more time spent outdoors than indoors and much less time spent painting I am afraid. My return from a recent business trip to Ottawa has had me at home with a rather nasty cold/flu which has meant more time at the easel to pass the time away. The oils were irritating my rather unhappy chest, so I pulled out the acrylics to see what I could do. Below is the result: a work in progress that I hope gets finished sooner than some of my other works in progress.
