The two paintings in the previous post plus the two paintings below will be in Old Lyme, CT. from January 11, 2013 to February 23, 2013. Hope you can make it to the show.
This painting was done at the end of last summer on the grounds of the beautiful Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA. From the lower stables of the estate there is a path that rises above the fields and marsh. If you follow the path all the way it ends at the back side of Cranes Beach. Along the way one sees beautiful vistas. One day while painting here a deer slowly walked into the scene I was painting.
At times it's fun to create a landscape painting by placing paint strokes on the canvas and see what shapes appear. By recognizing the shapes as being part of natures many parts a landscape soon appears. The artist is then free to create a mood with color and form.
I enjoy both methods of creating landscape paintings.
