Backgrounds 17 and 18 - Two Works in Progress

The temperature has dropped to -14F (-25.6C) but fortunately there is very little wind and it is going to be another bright and sunny day.

Which is wonderful, since I have to go to The Lindsay Gallery to pick up my paintings from the Then and Now All Members Christmas Show and Sale before heading to Art on Kent to sit the show for the afternoon.

I didn't have time to paint while sitting the show as we had a number of people come through the Gallery.














These two canvases are backgrounds created by using the leftover acrylic paint from the painting I was working on yesterday.

The first one was a mixture of alizarin crimson, cadmium red and cadmium yellow.














The second was made with a mixture of Titanium white, burnt sienna, raw sienna and a bit of alizarin crimson.

I will post each of these canvases at a later date once I have decided what to paint.

A Winter Sunset - A Work in Progress

The snow that started yesterday morning has finally stopped leaving us with 4" (10.2cm) of snow and much colder temperatures 2F (-16.7C) and a wind chill of -21F (-29.4C). The one nice thing is that we have a bright and sunny day.

I thought for today I should start on one of my paintings for the Small Treasures Show, which is a fund raiser being held this year to raise prize money for the Best of High School Art held at KAGS every May.

Since I see the sun rise and set on my property every day, weather permitting it made sense to do a painting of the sunset near the gate at the front of my property.














Working from the back forward, I completed the sky, the treeline from across the road, the under painting for the snow and some of the grasses and growies around the trees and in the foreground.

Next I started on the trees along the fence line and completed two of the pines and started the trunk of one of the large maple trees.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed more of the trees.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.

Elli's African Violets - A Work in Progress

This morning in the Still Life class at KAGS our theme was Potted Plants.

There were two different displays; the first one was of house plants, two kinds of African violets, orchids and cyclamen placed on a quilt in various shades of blue.

The second display had mainly flowering bulbs in pots, white tulips, red and white tulips, yellow daffodils, miniature daffodils, crocus, hyacinths and a large container of various coloured African violets, resting on a throw with sunflowers on a blue background. 














I decided to work on the large pot of African violets. Once the basic sketch was completed I brushed in the background with a mix of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue and raw sienna.

By then it was time for a break and when I returned the background was dry and I put in a base colour for the sunflower throw.

While waiting for the bottom of the painting to dry I put in the under paint on some of the African violet blooms using various mixes of French ultramarine blue, Cobalt blue and Antwerp blue combined with alizarin crimson.

I will post this painting at a later date once more work on it has been completed.

Autumn Reflections I - A Work in Progress

Today is supposed to be the last day of the very cold weather -5F (-20.6C) with the wind chill at -17F (-27C) and it is going to get warmer over the next couple of days before the temperatures take a nose dive once again.

I wanted to do some work on one of the paintings I am donating to the Small Treasures Show at KAGS, so I pulled this one out that I had started last year (see post on 30 December 2014).

I started by first painting in the small section of the sky using Titanium white and French ultramarine blue.

Next I blocked in the areas of red, orange and yellow maple leaves.

For this I used various mixtures or cadmium red, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, raw sienna and alizarin crimson and also left some areas with the background raw sienna wash showing. These colours were also brushed into the water.

To create the shadows a dark was made using French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and alizarin crimson.

Cerulean blue and Titanium white was added to the shadow colour and the tree trunks were indicated as well as the rocks.

The greens were painted in next using various mixtures of both blues, raw sienna and both yellows.

I will post this piece at a later date once the painting is completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork. I hope you will return often.

Study in Blue I - A Work in Progress

Today was another cold day 3F (-16C), with the wind chill it feels like -16F (-26.7C) and tomorrow it is to be more of the same. The bright side is that I will not receive the massive amounts of snow that is hitting the east coast today.

I painted with the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group and one of our members, Tom Young had an exercise for us to try.

He had printed out copies of a painting by Ron Hedrick and asked that we pick a colour and do a value scale at the top of the paper and then paint the entire piece using just the one colour.

It was an interesting exercise and although I didn't complete the figures it is good to keep it as a reference piece.

Foals 1-4 - Four Works in Progress

At the barn where my friend Joanne boards her horses over the winter they had a couple of thoroughbred foals born early in the New Year.

It was an unexpected treat to have two foals to sketch at this time of the year while I was waiting for Joanne to get her horse ready for her riding lesson.

Both of them were colts and born only four days apart and had the same sire; but they were as different in their personalities and actions as they were in their colouration.

Foal 1

I did a sketch of each of the foals while they were in the box stalls with their dams.

After the riding lesson, while Joanne was putting Fiona away I went back down to their adjoining stalls and studied the differences between the two foals.

Bruno was a bright bay without any white markings. The other was a rich red chestnut with a lot of chrome, four long white stockings, one up over the knee, called Jimmy.

Foal 3

Just as we were getting ready to leave the stable for the night the owners of the foals came in together.

They were going to turn the mares and foals out into the covered arena for a little while to give the foals a chance to stretch their legs.

We decided to stay and watch.

Bruno went right out into the arena after his dam with no hesitation, while Jimmy didn't want to leave the stall and had to be coaxed.

Foal 4

Bruno stood quietly surveying the large open area of the arena, his ears pointed forward until his mother lay down to roll. Suddenly he burst into action, bucking and kicking on his long spindly legs.














Foal 2

Jimmy once in the arena watched Bruno's antics and decided to join in and took off as fast as his slightly wobbly legs would carry him and almost fell making a sharp turn but managed to stay upright.

Before long it was time for them to return to their stalls for the night.

I will post each of these sketches at a later date once I have completed the outline drawing.

Barn Swallows - A Work in Progress

We had a light dusting of snow overnight which just hides the ice underneath and made walking treacherous. The nice thing is that the sun is out and we can hope that things will melt a little even with the temperature at 16F (-8.9C) and the wind chill at 7F (-13.9C) it is a lot warmer than it has been.

I had started this drawing last summer when the three pairs of barn swallows were here and nesting (see post on 24 August 2014).

I was not happy with where I had drawn the swallow in flight so I moved him away from the light post.

I completed the post and added more detail to the unused socket light.

Once I have completed more work on the swallows I will post this drawing again.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.

Morning Lake 2 - A Work in Progress

I didn't have a lot of time to paint today but I wanted to do a little more work on this painting that I had started a number of years ago (see posts on 08 December 2010, 27 January and 22 February 2014).

I started with putting in the main tree on the left side of the painting by putting in the under paint for the needles with Antwerp blue and raw sienna.













Next using a grey of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in the tree trunk and branches.

I will post this painting at a later date as more work on it has been completed.

I would like to thank Mr. Derrick Ryan of Hastings, Ontario on his purchase of Great Horned Owl (see post on 08 April 2013) to add to his collection.

Bath Time - A Work in Progress

I chose this painting (see posts on 11 and 16 July and 28 December 2014) to work on and perhaps complete the rubber duck and start on the bath oil bottle today.

Using a wash of new gamboge over the duck and set it aside to dry.












Before I could get back to do more on the painting I had some unexpected company arrive and I will have to leave working on the duck for another day.

Evening Sky 5 - A Work in Progress

Today I just wanted to put some paint onto paper and decided to use a limited palette of three colours: French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and raw sienna.

After wetting the paper, I first brushed raw sienna into the sky using sweeping strokes and leaving areas of white.

Then with horizontal strokes put the area that would be the lake into the bottom of the paper.

Next I used burnt sienna and I brushed covering some areas of the raw sienna and still left a few areas of white paper in the sunset sky.

Once again I used horizontal strokes to indicate the water, being sure to leave some areas of white paper and raw sienna showing.

Mixing a grey with French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna, I swept in some clouds into the sky and the distance shore and an island.

With a slightly darker mix of the grey I brushed it into the water.

Once the paint had dried I lightly indicated where I would place my foreground trees on the shore.

I will post this painting at a later date once some work has been completed on the trees.

First Snow - A Work in Progress

After being above freezing yesterday and getting rain today it is back into the deep freeze with the temperature at 18F (-8C) and the wind chill the making it feel like 7F (-14C) and the temperature to continue to drop throughout the day.

Needless to say with the rain we had yesterday and the overnight freeze my driveway has turned into an ice rink and I will have to wait for the sand truck to come by before I go out and run errands.

In the meantime I decided to paint a little more on this 8" x 10" canvas I has started last year (see post on 23 December 2014) for the Small Treasures Show.














I started with the trees on the hill in the distance and painted the evergreens using a mix of cerulean blue and raw sienna. I added a little cadmium yellow to the green mix and painted in the evergreens in the field.

Next I wanted to paint in the deciduous trees starting with the far hill.

First I mixed a dark of French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and alizarin crimson and painted in the taller background tree trunks and moved on to work on the closer ones in the field.














Next it was time to put the leaves on the trees. For this I used various mixtures of Cadmium red, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow and alizarin crimson.

I will post this painting at a later date once it has been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.

Evening Sky 4 - A Work in Progress

With today being fairly mild I decided to do a little more work on this painting that I had started last month (see post on 31 December 2014).

I wanted to get at least the island completed.

First I had to paint the background shoreline across so some of it would show through the trees on the island.













Next I painted the trees and did a little more detail on the rocks.

I started to paint in some of the darker reflections below the island into the water but decided that I would set it aside and look at it before deciding just how much reflection I would paint.

I will post this painting at a later date once it is completed.

Background 13 and 14 - Two Works in Progress

It is another very cold day -8F (-22C) and the wind chill makes it feel like -20F (-29C) but it is supposed to get warmer as the day goes on which will be a pleasant change.

These two canvases are backgrounds made from the leftover paint from a painting I was working on from the John Dave Anderson workshop held at KAGS earlier this month (see post on 10 January 2015).














Background 13

I decided to use two canvas panels instead of just one. The first using the remaining white paint and the two different blues which were first applied with a palette knife and then smoothed using a brush.














Background 14

For the second canvas I put all the warm colours, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, raw sienna and cadmium yellow onto the panel with a palette knife and blended the colours over the canvas.

I will post each of these panels once more work has been completed on them at a later date.

Jumping 1-3 - Three Works in Progress

Another cold day with the temperature at 4F (-15.6C) with the wind chill making it feel like -8F (-22.2C).















Jumping 1

It is an unpleasant day outside and it was much nicer to be inside by the fire. Fortunately, I found a program featuring stadium jumping on television.














Jumping 2

With pencil and sketchbook in hand I chose to try and capture some of the horses going over the fences.

With the way the cameras followed the course I worked between three different sketches trying to capture the position of the horses in the different directions and angles.














Jumping 3

It was an interesting exercise; using bits and pieces of a number of different show jumpers and it has given me three sketches to complete at a later date.

All of them have the potential to become paintings and if they do I will also post them.

Red Candle - A Work in Progress

Junkyard has finally returned, although he has shed a couple of pounds he is alive and his leg seems to be healing. He has become a lot shier but I was still able to touch him before he ran away, so I put food out for him and he did eat.

The morning started off overcast, but with everything coated in white frost. The trees were a wondrous sight to behold and I wanted to stay home and take photographs, but I had to head down to KAGS for the still life class.

The theme for the class was candlelight.

We had two different displays set up. One was a single amber coloured glass candlestick with three pears.

The other was a collection of various candle holders in everything from glass, porcelain, clay, stained glass, crystal and brass. I chose to work on a single candle in a holder of crystal and pewter from the collection.

I will post this painting at a later date.

After the class I sat the "Free Expressions" show in the Gallery.

When it was time for me to head home the weather had warmed and it turned out to be a fairly nice, sunny day with the temperature climbing to 24F (-4.5C)

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.

ACEO - Happy Hippo 1

Today I wanted to finish is little piece that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 17 November 2013).

I tidied up the arm and leg on the right side and added a little more hair on his head.

First I put down a wash of burnt sienna as the base colour of the wooden floor.

Then I added a little French ultramarine blue to darken the colour and using a dry brush I added in the wood grain using horizontal strokes.

For the background behind the hippo I used a mix of raw sienna and new gamboge.

Once the background was dry it was time to paint the hippo.  I started with alizarin crimson for the inside of the ears and then added a small amount of new gamboge to paint the muzzle. I then put in the mouth with alizarin crimson.

For the main parts of the body and the head, I used alizarin crimson, French ultramarine blue and a small amount of burnt sienna.

To the body colour I added a little more burnt sienna to darken the colour and painted in the hooves.

Using the hoof colour I made it almost black by adding more of the blue and burnt sienna and painted the hair, eyes, and nostrils.

With pure Antwerp blue I painted in the scarf.

Lastly, using cadmium yellow I put in the highlight on the hair and on the edges if the eyes.

If you would like more information about ACEO please go to my post on 11 March 2010.

The ACEO shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.

Skies - Three Works in Progress

Today I was at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Lakefield giving a class on painting skies to the Lakefield Creative Arts Group.

They wanted to learn to paint skies at different times of day and clouds formations.

To make it easier for the class I decided to use a limited palette of French ultramarine blue, raw sienna and burnt sienna for the first painting of a sunset.

The sky and water would be painted wet on wet.

Each student first mixed a puddle of the three colours on their palette and then the paper was thoroughly wet with water. Once the glow had left the paper pure raw sienna was swept into the sky area leaving some sections of white paper.

A thin line of white paper was left to indicate the horizon line.

Sunset Silhouettes

The water of the lake was put in with horizontal strokes to make it appear to be a flat surface.

Burnt sienna was used next and brushed into the sky in various areas and allowed to mix with the raw sienna creating a subtle orange glow in the sky. This colour was also painted into the water, again using horizontal strokes.

Finally, French ultramarine blue with a touch of burnt sienna were brushed into the still wet sky and water. It was set aside to dry.

The morning sky was again painted with a limited palette of Antwerp blue, alizarin crimson, French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

The colours were prepared in the same way as the first painting, with the exception that the French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna were premixed for a warm grey,

Going Uphill

Once again painting wet on wet Antwerp blue was applied to the paper leaving the bottom of the paper white for the snow and some areas of the sky white for the other colours.

Next alizarin crimson was brushed into the sky and a pale wash was put into the snow area with slightly curved lines to give the snow covered hill a little shape.

Lastly the grey clouds were put into the sky covering some of the pinks and blues already applied to the sky. This painting was also set aside to dry.

The last painting was to be mainly of clouds. For this one we wanted a little more control over the colour as it was applied so the paper wasn't wet as much as for the first two pieces.

Only three colours used for the sky, they were French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and raw sienna.

Gathering Storm I

The paper was lightly wet and the horizon line washed in using pure raw sienna.

Various mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna were made on the palette, some more to the blue shade some more to the grey shade.

The clouds layers were brushed in using the different mixes, keeping some areas of the paper white and allowing the colours to blend on the paper as well. This painting was then set aside to dry.

After the lunch break. We started again on the sunset painting by lightly sketching in with pencil the distant island and the closer island, rocks and trees.

Using a mix of French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and alizarin crimson to create a warm dark black the far shoreline was painted in first without a lot of detail.

Next with a little more detail the distant island was painted in and reflections were painted into the water below the island.

Work was started on the closer island before we ran out of time. I will post the continuing progress of each of these three paintings at a later date.

Winter Pine - A Work in Progress

It is a little warmer at 10F (-12C) with the wind chill it feels like 1F (-17C), but at least there isn't supposed to be any snow until late afternoon.

It is back to KAGS for day two of the John David Anderson workshop.

Today's painting will be another snow scene, this will feature the many subtle colour variations both warm and cool that can be found in white snow just before sunset.

For a change we used Cobalt blue for the under paint to cover the canvas.

Using a thicker Cobalt blue the horizon line was painted in, the lone pine tree and the darkest shadows in the snow.

Various mixtures of Cobalt blue and Titanium white were used to indicate the sky and the tonal values of the snow drifts on the hill.

I had to rework the distant shoreline, change the tree to make it look more like a windblown pine tree instead of having it look like a Christmas tree and rework the sky.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have started painting in some of the many colours in the snow.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.

Frozen Marsh I - A Work in Progress

It is 0F (-18C) and with the wind chill it feels like -18F (-28C). There is still no sign of Junkyard and I am starting to think that something has happened to him; but I am hoping that I am wrong and he will show up again.

Today is the first day of the John David Anderson workshop at the Kawartha Art Gallery and Studio.














In the morning we started by under painting the canvas with a thin layer of French ultramarine blue. Then with thicker paint we blocked in the basic shapes of the painting establishing the rock, the trees, the first line of reeds and the distant shore of the marsh.

Next the darkest darks were painted in, then the mid tone values and finally the lightest colours were painted.














After the lunch break it was time to add more detail starting with the background dead trees in the sunlit area.

Some of the brighter colour was added into the closer area of weeds on the edge of the marsh and shadow and colour onto the closer trees.

I will this post this painting at a later date once more work on it has been completed.

Koi 1 and 4 - Two Works in Progress

Well it is finally getting warmer, today is 8F (-13C) and with the wind chill -8F (-22C) which is much more tolerable than the cold that we have had over the past couple of days.

Today I had to sit at Art on Kent instead of on my usual Saturday as tomorrow I have a class at KAGS with John David Anderson.














Koi 1

With it starting to snow shortly after I arrived not many people came in, most probably preferred to go home and spend their evening in the comfort of their home. So I worked on a couple of the drawings of the koi I had started last year (see post on 06 and 18 July 2014).

Once I had tightened the details on the sketches it was time to paint in the background.














Koi 4

On the first one I painted the background using French ultramarine blue and on the second one I used Cobalt blue.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date one I have completed the koi.

Copper Kettle - A Work in Progress

Today it is warmer 0F (-18C) with the wind chill at -17F (-27C) than yesterday and today is also the first day of the Still Life class at KAGS for this year.

We did not have a theme for the class and used some of the vases, pieces of pottery and various containers that are in the Gallery for two interesting displays to paint.

The first one was of a clay jug, pot, bowl and spoon with a glass goblet and a few Chinese lanterns.

The second one consisted of two copper kettles, a brown glass bottle, an orange and a couple of pears.














I chose to use one of the kettles, the orange and the glass bottle. I had to move the bottle over from where it was to make a more pleasing picture.

Once the rough drawing was complete I started working on the orange. First I put a wash of new gamboge over the whole orange and gradually added a couple more layers to give the orange shape.

Next I added a touch of cadmium red to the new gamboge and added a few layers of this colour into the shadowed areas.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed the orange.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.

Countryside Art Group Blog - Show Updates

Today is very cold and our high was -8F (-22C) with the wind chill -14F (-25.5C) this morning and the temperature has continued to drop all day and now the temperature is -15F (-26C) and with the wind chill it feels like -29F (-34C), small wonder the weather stations are giving an extreme cold warning for the day. Hopefully it will warm up a little tomorrow.

Junkyard still hasn't returned and with this cold weather I hope he is somewhere safe and warm.

On the first of each month I will update the Countryside Art Group's blog with a listing of shows where the various artists in the Group are exhibiting their work.

If you get a chance come out and visit them at one or all of the shows.

Background 12 - A Work in Progress

Today was a little warmer than yesterday with the temperature at 9F (-13C) and the wind chill making it feel like 3F (-16C) and overnight the temperature will drop to -18F (-28C) with the wind chill -28F (-33C) with tomorrow being a much colder day.

As usual, yesterday at the end of the class I took the leftover paint from my palette and applied it to a canvas.















The colours are a mix of cadmium red, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, cerulean blue, French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and titanium white.

I will post this piece once I decide what will be painted on it at a later date.

Frozen Marsh - A Work in Progress

The day started off clear and very cold 0F (-18C) and with the wind chill it felt like -17F (-27C). I am concerned about my cat Junkyard. The last time he was in the barn was on New Year's Day and he had scraped a lot of skin off his left hind leg and it is not like him to miss a meal much less for more than a couple of days. Hopefully he is just out being a Casanova.

This afternoon I was in a class with Lucy Manley at the Kawartha Artists’ Gallery and Studio. What was interesting and a pleasant surprise was that the subject for the class was a winter scene of a marsh.

Yesterday I was out taking photographs of a world coated in thick ice after the freezing rain storm of the night before. Some of the pictures were of a section of the Snelgrove Brook which runs through the back of my property, so I was able to use my own reference material.














When I left the Gallery it had clouded over and was starting to snow. The wind had died down a little, but the cold remained and the high for the day was 7F (-14C) with the wind chill making it feet like -9F (-23C). Needless to say, I am not looking forward to the continuing cold weather forecast for this week.

I will post this painting at a later date as more work on it has been completed.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.

ACEO - Serene Place 2

I would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

Today I wanted to complete this drawing that I had started last year (see post on 09 November 2014).

I started by washing in a sky using French ultramarine blue and left some areas of the sky white for the clouds.

With a slightly darker shade of the blue I put in the base coat for the lake.

Using various mixtures of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, new gamboge and raw sienna, I painted the trees on the island.

I left a small band of white paper showing below the bottom of the trees for the snow covered rocks and immediately below that I indicated a few ripples in the water using one of the green mixes.

From there I started on the pine trees in the foreground using the same colours as the trees on the island but slightly darker.

Using mixes of burnt sienna and raw sienna I put in the dead grasses and growies at the base of the trees.

Leaving a number of white areas on top of the rocks for snow, I used French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna to paint in the rocks.

I added a small bush using the rock colours for the branches and cadmium yellow for a few leaves.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
