Misty Day: Mini Oil Sketch 6″ x 8″ Panel

I enjoy practicing on smaller panels; I don’t feel overwhelmed, and I have room to practice new techniques without fear or messing up. For this painting, I wanted to keep my brushstrokes loose while leaving visible texture. This was painted on a 6″ x 8″ panel.

I am starting to enjoy the use of acrylic paint for the under-painting. It allows me to work farther into a painting in one session and allows the painting to maintain a certain vibrancy that is hard to achieve with oil paints alone. I make go back on the left side to add more detail. I have learned that there are infinite ways to paint clouds and water. The key is to add many colors and work them towards one another.

Amidst: Oil Painting on Linen

Impressionism Landscape watermark

I wanted to paint something colorful and dream-like. I love the idea of challenging perceptions of realism in art and  I am beginning to believe that what we see is always questionable. However, I do believe it is false to rely solely on intuition for guidance–being able to utilize one’s intuition while under control leads to perfect harmony.  I painted many landscapes in various styles–impressionism, realism, and abstract–and I feel that each one is different. This is perhaps because I allow the painting to speak rather than impose myself on the painting.
