The Picton Strait 6" x 8" Oil/Panel


The Autumn colours are still hanging in there. But, they are now taking their tole with the wind and rain in a losing battle.
This piece was painted on a Gray stained Masonite panel. The colours used were my regular limited palette. This painting required two hours ...and a bit to finish. I only mention this because...
This painting was painted the same day. It also was painted on a 6 x 8 panel but stained with a light orange colour. The limited palette was also used for this painting.


The Sunshine Pasture 6" x 8" Oil /Panel

It is plain to see the difference in the style and application of the paint. Both, legitimate. The first being, in my mind, a "fussy, detailed" painting and the second, a more "blocked in and intuitive" method.
Yet, I feel both maintain their own abstract qualities and callings and the choice between them becomes one of personal preference.
This second painting required twelve minutes to complete.

'til next...

Interesting Frank. Did you enjoy doing one more than the other? I get the feeling that you found the second one more satisfying.

Thank you, Megha. I appreciate your comment and compliment.
Nice to see that you are "branching out" so to speak. It never hurts to have more than one technique in your bag of experiences. Painting on glass is a good technique. Good luck with it.

Smiles.. :~)

Keith... good guess. :~) ..and it was less boring and more fun that was for sure. Nice to deal wth the big shapes and basically forget the details... :~)

Take care...
