View Full Version : Larry's influence

I was soooo impressed with Larry's pleine aire that I couldn't wait to get out and really let loose myself...So off down to the local woods with me! Let me know what you think of this effort...I must say I really enjoyed working mainly with colour and tone and not worrying about detail...its a woodland walk in Garryhinch Forestry 500 yards from my home...Jazz

Thanks for the compliments guys and yes Larry its great to have a site like wetcanvas available to wannabes like me where great artists like yourself showing their work to inspire myself and others like me ...Thanks to all who post here for this privilege...I'm relatively new to painting ..been there about 17 years ago but never followed it through...too many distractions!! Nowadays(last year and a half approx) I'm spending all my spare time at it...thanks again ..Jazz

jazz...impressive and so electric...was the day like that...love the colors..vivid and surreal...like the way you pushed the limits and didn't try to be too literal with color...ie..brown tree trunks,...keep it up.

I was afraid to come in this thread at first. I feel very blessed, not "big headed" as some might suspect...that anyone might speak well of me. I've been high, and have fallen very low...and have learned to let myself be encouraged with the good report of others without making anything more out of it. So.. I KEERrrfooly clicked onto this thread.
Oh man...JAZZ, it caused my eyes to water! If I have had anything to do with encouraging you and this piece is any indication of that... I am a man most blessed! My friend...I was awestruck!!! Congrads James...you will never be the same again! And not just a few weeks ago did it come to my attention that you are for the most part very new to painting.
Wow...you tapped into it! I squint my eyes, and can feel those cool spring shadows, and sense the warmth of the sun just beyond.
Is there anything quite like it James? Gettin into this groove...this, "leave-me-alone-I'm-focused" groove? This puttin something live down before it goes away? Thanks for sharing!
I'm a little self-conscious about being singled out so among many good artists here, but very blessed nevertheless!

What I wanna know Larry, is how come you're not influencing my plein air like this! I keep painting out of doors...and I use acrylics...and I try to work fast...and I try to lose consciousness...
but when I wake up...it still looks the same!

well...I have said all along that it takes doing about 120 bad paintings to learn what amounts to a lot about painting. I think you begin near square one when changing directions, but it falls to maybe doing aout 30...etc;
to quote someone, "to make good art...you have to make lots of it"!
Why James got something so good so early points to a unique gifting on his part, something instructors see and recognize sooner than the individual. This is no pressure to prove the same as early on every one good one has its 2-3 poor ones. James will still have to do his 120 bad paintings, (bad as he will recognize them compared to his 130th looking back). The promise shown here is that James is well on his way.
I want to see some of your plein air work here Carly!!! Some Georgia "ah-Hahs!"
and....no bugs or ticks in Georgia??? Wow...will have to come down sometime to paint!

Jazz..what a fun thing to see you jump off the cliff so early in your art life..wish we all had the courage to do likewise! If you are this free, this expressive, this early, the art world is your oyster...so keep looking for inspiration..and the great Irish landscape..tha's a plus! Sandy
Makes me want to bundle up my paints and take a walk in the woods!..........Mae
