1788 In Full Bloom Mixed Media oil and water color painting








First painting after my cataract surgery, I was having fun with colors! I tried a new to me technique. I took a piece of watercolor paper, coated it with clear acrylic. This was to protect the paper from the oil paints. Then painted an under painting with watercolors. Then went over that with oils. It was about 5 sessions with letting it dry in between times and tweaks. Its a fun technique, something a little different.  Its loosely based on a photo I took while I was at a Heathcote Botanical Gardens plant sale.



Its 9 x 11 inches, watercolor and oil on watercolor paper.

1787 June-Ann's Palm Trees Plein Air alla Prima

"June-Ann's Palm Trees" I painted this yesterday in June-Ann's lovely yard with my painting group, The Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast. We had a super time, June-Ann took me on a tour of her home and I got to see her wonderful collection of paintings. She served us iced tea and cookies they were an unexpected treat. I had fun on the way over to her house, there are lots of peacocks wandering around the neighborhood, we could hear them calling while we were painting.

1774 Wafting White Water Lily

 This started out badly, I was trying a different technique, negative painting with water soluble oil paints. So it was sort of new to me, I have done negative painting before but not trying to do a whole painting just parts of them. Negative painting is working from front to back, it messes with your mind in a fun but sometimes frustrating way. So foreground things are painted first and the background is painted around them. Then in the end up it turned into more of one of my normal paintings. There is the final painting and a wip below. Right before the end the painting was taken to the sink and washed off, something I hadn't done with water soluble oils. I wasn't sure if the whole thing would come off or not. It stayed and I decided I didn't like the plants on the right so rubbed them out. Click them to see bigger. Painting is 9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas mounted on masonite.
