In The Studio: Just Paint “Afternoon Showers” “Ocean Point”

Today’s oil painting is an attempt to capture light dancing across water reflections.  I used a really simple subject of a mass of trees along the side of a river bank.  I put in a big piece of sky to evoke the feeling of a building storm coming up over the top of the trees. The brush and color work is pretty lively and I was pretty happy with the relationship of the landscape forms. The second painting is about the late afternoon light on the Maine coast.DSC_0007“Afternoon Showers”  11×17 oil on canvas panel

    The first painting has such wonderful reflections of the trees, and in the second, even the rocks are glowing with the light!ReplyCancel
