Clouds – Acrylic on Canvas Board – 7×10 inches

I decided to work on clouds this weekend.  There are so many ways to make clouds.  Who knew?  I decided to start in the conventional way.  In the painting above, I used only two colors, Titanium white and Indigo blue.  The trees and hills came about by accident.  I am not sure one would see as many fluffy clouds like these , but that wasn’t the point of the exercise.  The main things is that I enjoyed myself when making them. 🙂

Mini Landscapes – Acrylic on Canvas – 4×4 inches

After painting Field of Gold, I dug out some mini-canvases I had in my cupboard and continued on using the same colors.  The sides are painted wrap-around and would look really cute on a mini easel.  What do you think?

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!
