It is great to be painting outside again. Here are my first two works painted outside this year, returning to a favorite method of “broken line,” that feels very authentic.
For the painting Insinuations, shown above, I borrowed from the composition I did last week, done with oil on claybord, titled Reflected Water Surface Close-up (see here), wanting to take it in a different direction with color. I like the result, which is large at 22″x30, and done in pastel.
The painting below, titled Wind Blown, is also done in broken line, and is reminiscent of the foliage on our hanging weeping cherry branches being tossed about in the wind. It is 22″x30″ and done in pastel as well.
Both of these look particularly good on the merchandise, I think…
Which is your favorite?
