Fall Trees

Pin It

This is something a little different from me! But I am liking the bright colors and looseness of this style!
I am working a bit more in acrylics and oils so be on the lookout for some more "different" looks from me. Though watercolor is just so beautiful that it will not go away from my palette!
Also what is different about this piece is that is painted on stretched watercolor paper on canvas stretcher boards and is varnished. It is very freeing to do something like this! I am also experimenting with this technique with watercolor and then spraying with a fixative.

Any thoughts?  Too wild?  Too so much done?  Interesting?  More of the same style?

Fall Trees is on display at Studio 151 Fine Art Gallery in Charleston, SC.

Old Tractor Out To Pasture

Pin It

A couple of years ago, I was driving through the country about 2 hours west of St Louis, MO, right in the middle of the Mid West! We came across some old cars and a couple of tractors out in the fields. 
This one really captured me. I zoomed in with my composition in order to get the "guts" of the old tractor with the combination of colors of the rusted reds and yellows.
