30-in-30 is back!
Each day for the month of September, I will be posting a new painting on my blog and Facebook page. My theme is "Rural Impressions" and will feature paintings depicting country life in Southwestern Ontario!
What else have I been up to?
It's been a good summer thus far. While I haven't been sharing many new paintings, I've been doing lots of painting. In particular I have been doing both plein air work (i.e. painting outdoors from life) and painting ahead for my Sept 30-in-30.
I have been continuing my online training at Watts Atelier. The work in the program is mainly drawing and focuses on figure and portraiture. These are definitely outside my comfort zone - but I am making slow and steady progress. Me and some of my peers at Watts are also taking a landscape sketching class through Schoolism, taught by the talented Nathan Fowkes. I have learned a lot thus far and it is definitely informing my landscape work.
Dappled Sunlight, Springbank Park (plein air)
Oil on Canvas, 8x10 inches.
Edges painted black.
Ready to Hang.
I painted this during a paint-out with the London Plein Air Group. It was a beautiful morning and I couldn't resist the patterns of light and shadow.
I believe art is meant to be shared. I am a Canadian landscape painter that works primary in oils & acrylics. I create works both en plein air & in the studio.
