Brughs Tavern

Two small paintings of Brughs Tavern (bottom photo) were begun yesterday at Explore Park.  We had great weather until about two in the afternoon when a thunderstorm put a stop to  our fun!  I still need to finish them up but plein air painting captures the moment in time with such immediacy - fun but challenging.....

Exploration and Imagination

                                          Parkway Series #446   12 x 16  oil   $195.

                                                   Parkway Series #447  12 x 16  oil 

                                                    Parkway Series #448  12 x 16   oil   $195,

Value Patterns are quick gestures of the dark shapes in a composition.  After beginning these three paintings with value sketches using black acrylic on a red canvas, I then finished each one from imagination - not referring to a photo or painting on location like I usually do.  This is stretching me to do something different and to explore the shapes, reflective light, and color theory rather than just translate what is before me.
