Folk Art

Trying some folk art. Just wanted to try something different. These are all very small- 6inchx8inch. I =really enjoyed doing them. There are a few "fails".. mostly when I try to use green. So, thinking about how to use a more toned down green color for outdoor scenes.

Old Boatyard- Sneads Ferry, NC

Still working on this one a bit...Sneads Ferry, NC. This is from a reference photo from a visit there a few years ago. Currently,  I have a lot of workers at my house, painting exterior and doing some  
 inside repairs. My studio windows are covered with tarps and lots of noise! 8x10 oil

Enjoyed getting out and meeting some new plein air painting friends. The weather has been unusually warm- in the high 60's to low 70's. Not complaining!

Patiently Waiting

Today, I debated about doing a marsh painting or a setting up a still life. But my studio is a bit messy after the holidays and setting up a still life would take some time. So, marsh scene won out. The little egret was an "addition" and I think he looks okay so he will stay. 9x12 oil, mostly palette knife.

Charleston Sunset- palette knife

Saw this view on the way to the Charleston Airport. Its a 8x10 palette knife. I like to do these small ones with a palette knife- it seems to keep the colors crisper and less muddy.
