THIS painting, I'm particularly proud of. It is a 24"x30" palette knife painting of wintery reflections on the surface of the Harpeth River. It is for the The Chestnut Group'sCumberland on Canvas event. I have painted water reflections before, but this is largest surface I have ever attempted. I'm very pleased with the result. I love how it is recognizable yet abstract, which was my goal for this piece. It shows well in the modern urban exhibit space of the Bridge Building. If you are in Nashville this weekend, I highly recommend that you stop by and take a look.
Here is another painting with the The Chestnut Groupfor the Cumberland on Canvas event.A portion of the show's proceeds benefit the Cumberland River Compact. Event Details below. This is a reflecting pond from Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum. Here is a field shot on location.
I love Sycamore trees. I call them "Lightning Trees" because their stark, white, branches look like a bolts of lightning to me. I have been itching to paint one for some time now. I finally got my chance while painting with the The Chestnut Groupfor the Cumberland on Canvas event. We will be sharing and selling our paintings for the Cumberland River Compact April 17 and 18. Details are in the attachments below.
My first attempt at plein air cityscape painting went pretty good. Although the winter day was not the best of weather, it was a lot of fun to work with all of the different shapes of the Nashville skyline. I painted these with my friends of The Chestnut Group. We will be sharing and selling our paintings for the Cumberland River Compact April 17 and 18. Details are in the attachments below. We painted in a beautiful urban space, just across the Cumberland River, to get a good view of the city. After the sun wend down, I stayed a little longer to get this nocturne quick-draw below.
