Seascapes

I decided to revisit this painting from one I made in November.   I gave the small canvas to a friend of mine as a house warming present.  She recently moved back from up North in Yorkshire, Emily Bronte country.  I really liked it and decided to make another one, but larger.  I used sand medium and used extra sand from the beach.  I could probably do this again and it will come out completely different.

I had some leftover paint, and so I made this little one afterwards:

I always feel better after painting a seascape.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

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?

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!
