The new Into the Woods series continues, but on this jaunt I also came out of the woods.
Technical painting notes: When painting the 6×6’s I use a few different supports, including 140lb. and 300 lb. rag watercolor paper (sometimes hot press, sometimes cold press), 2-ply rag matboard, and even Stonehenge printing and drawing paper. I usually prime the front and back with a coat of clear shellac, though occasionally I use acrylic gesso and let the texture of the brush marks influence the look of the final painting. I use Winsor Newton Liquin as a medium, both regular and impasto.
Teri Though I’m relishing deep summer, I’m enjoying this work. It reminds me of a West Coast painter I’m in correspondence with, Randall Tipton – check out his blog, Painter’s Process. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday at 10. Ginny
Thanks for the tip, Ginny. I looked up his work – wonderful!
This style is so different from your previous work, it warrants an exploration all on its own. The freshness, light, and excitement persists throughout the series. I wold love to see you progress this into larger images.
I’d love to see if these can go larger, too. Daunting, and and a lot of paint!
I feel like I’ve been through those woods with you, great work!
Thanks Ian. Nothing’s better than a great walk in the woods, though I bet you have some magnificent walks out your way too.
How are the new paintings priced and would the purchase of 4 reduce the prices?
Faithfully Yours, A
Glad you like them Arnold. The paintings are $285.00 each, matted and ready to slip into a frame (no quantitly discounts). If there are specific titles you are interested in, you should contact Powers Gallery in Acton, Massachusetts, USA. They can help you. There’s a link to the gallery on my home page.
Beautiful, vibrant, unique style… a change! take care, Kathy
Thanks Kathy. You never know where something will lead….
