Hillside with Clouds - SOLD

Hillside with Clouds
Oil on Canvas Panel,12" x 9"
SOLD at $5 plus $10 shipping.

I wanted to see how well I could do without white paint. Really, no white at all.
I do have a pale blue grey tube paint that I've used in place of the white.

This one was interesting to paint, since I ran out of white paint half way thru, and had to do my lightening with a tube of pale blue grey. Thankfully I had the sky and the water done with the little bit of white I still had.

This one was done with a palette knife, for the most part, so has a lot of texture.

Don't you love seeing all the blossoming trees along the road? Right now the Red Buds are out, and they are so delicate and beautiful (though this isn't a Red Bud.)  I like the Red Maple behind the cherry in this one.

Today was a tough painting day, too many interruptions, too many distractions, too many worries.
So this is what I got, after some fits and starts.

Finally, a landscape. Enough florals for awhile, methinks.

I have almost forgotten how to paint in oils. My dear friend B bought me some canvas yesterday (YAY!, thanks, B.) so I could get back to some oil painting. I painted this one as though it were gouache or watercolor, but towards the end, I was starting to remember. Now for some landscapes, yum.

Here is a possible cropped version (it's just paper, after all)


Which would make the size around 7" x 7".
Do you like the cropped version better?

I was thinking about a different paper surface, and when I unearthed my pad of Bristol, I found an old watercolor that I had apparently played with, and forgotten. (Bristol is actually meant for dry media.) So I used gouache over it, just to see how the paper worked, and to see what would happen with gouache in a looser treatment. Looks like I need to go over the black areas again, bit other than that, I'll let you guys be the judges.

This one could be square, but I've allowed a little extra breathing room at the right.
Just because, which if you like that look, would make is more like 13" x 14".
This one took all day, just so many little pieces.

With Gouache, does the paper make a difference?
Yes, gouache acts differently on different paper, just as watercolor does. I like the smooth way gouache goes on this toned cotton paper, but it does take more to cover an area. The blending is easier as well. I'll have to try other papers, see what happens.

I'm finding out with gouache that you need to get your brights and lights down first. Otherwise it'll take too many coats to bring something up to a bright light. Here I went very gingerly with the light yellows, and later decided that it had gotten too chalky, so added more bright at the end. (Chalky is one of the dangers, I am finding, with gouache.) In some places I treated the paint like watercolor.
