Landscape with Zorn Palette - SOLD

Landscape with Zorn Palette
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $10.00 plus $10.00 shipping.

Practice with a limited palette, often attibuted to Anders Zorn. I used Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Ivory Black and the sometimes additional Cobalt Blue. Amazing how much you can get out of a few simple colors. This one was a combination of my own photos references, and copying a piece (which I quite like) by Kevin Menck That's why it's priced low, can't make a profit on a copy, just materials and shipping.

Hydrangeas on Grey - SOLD

Hydrangeas on Grey
Oil on Stretched Linen, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $35.00 plus $7.00 shipping

I hope you all aren't getting tired of the blue hydrangeas. It's just that I had such nice mixes left over after the large oval painting yesterday, that I couldn't bear not using them up. (Hate to waste paint.) So I promise this will be the last one for awhile. On to other things. A landscape today, I think.

Oval Hydrangeas - SOLD

Oval Hydrangeas
Oil on Stretched Oval Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $75.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

I had an oval canvas to use up, and this seemed like a good opportunity to use it, I've been doing some hydrangea paintings lately. It will make a nice statement on a wall, I think.

Turning Into Summer - SOLD

Turning Into Summer
Oil on Stretched Linen, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $35.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

It's always cool to have the summer bracketed by Memorial Day and Labor Day, a definite beginning and end to summer. Personally, I love the beginning, with the whole lovely summer to look forward to. This one is done from a reference photo of Lake Artemesia which is a sweet little manmade lake nearby to my friend J's home where we had a nice walk and some snapping of photos last Friday afternoon.

Into the Greenwoods - SOLD

Into the Greenwoods
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16"
SOLD at $65.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

This one was posted before on April 25, 2011, and didn't sell. It may have been priced a little high. Sometimes it's nice to have some good pieces around, just to revise and post again. I changed the sky, made it lighter, brighter, and retouched the greens, and the path. I think it has more light and depth now, certainly a good size painting at this price.
