Here is a new painting I just completed last week. Summer is still in full vigor in the Midwest, so I decided to capture that in another fun summer composition. Fall is coming fast, followed by old man winter, so if it is ok with you, I would like to hold onto summer just a bit longer.
This particular composition was intended to be a “soft” painting. Soft, meaning most of the elements have either a soft feel to the colors or perhaps soft edges. Even the rocks in the foreground are not quite as jagged as I usually paint them. All in all, I wanted to create a painting that was easy on the eyes, and maybe, a painting where the viewer can easily picture themselves at.
I used mainly Lukas 1862 oil paints for this piece along with a double primed cotton canvas support. The painting itself measures 9” X 12” and will be sealed and signed when it sells either online or at an art show. I always wait to seal and sign until a collector has been found for my artwork.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend
