Field of Gold

Standard

FIMG_3457 (Edited)Field of Gold – Acrylic on Paper – 9.5 x 12 inches

Thought I would get back to painting landscapes.  Colors used: French Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Gold.  Unfortunately, the gold doesn’t show up very well in this photograph.  I just added a few dabs here and there. Hope you like it!

Landscape – Mixed Media on Paper – 8×8 inches

I love using the brayer, but I never know how these paintings are going to turn out.  The top one came out the way I hoped, but the bottom one turned out different.  In any event, I always enjoy myself when making these paintings.  I also tend to get a bit messy.  Although I have a great love of color, I find these dark paintings somewhat soothing.  I used three colors: Mars Black, Indigo Blue, and Titanium White.  I also used acrylic white ink.

I might try these in some bright colors next time!
