THE OTHER CORNER – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Another corner of a field and another repeat. In my last post it was a restrained approach to a similar subject. This was more about pouring and spraying and trying to make something of it after the deluge.

I certainly liked my last version of this, but it stayed on the shelf after many outings. So it was back to the easel and this time I have removed some of the darks and put in more foreground colour. I have emphasised the light through the trees and introduced a fence post to redress the compositional balance – anything for a sale.

THE SHORT WAY BACK – PASTEL PAINTING

P1030813a

I was intending on doing this in watercolour, but I enjoyed working on the pastel I did for  the previous post and the pastels were still  out on my workplace – so why not.  I hear many times from bloggers that the photo doesnt do justice to their work. Well here it’s the reverse. This shot flatters the actual painting. It makes it almost presentable.

I’ll leave it alone and see how I feel about it in a week or so. In the meantime it’s back to watercolours.

THE START OF THE RAINS – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1060695(1)
Another painting I have reworked. I have had this idea of dessicated grasslands and the last time it came out  like a wheat field. I certainly think this is an improvement but is it enough? I added the trees this time and whether they complicate matters and detract from the vast expanse of nothingness, I am not sure. The earlier version is on my website for a while before I take it down: grahammcquadefineart.com
