Re: Weekly paintings Southwest & Florida

I love when you show close ups of your paintings - you really get to see and appreciate all the textures - I bet you your paintings are absolutely breathtaking in person. Another beautiful painting Richard

Nice work, Richard! I think the whitecaps added a sense of life to the painting. Excellent work!

Re: Weekly paintings Southwest & Florida

Living in Southwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico offers great opportunity for plein air work - except in the hot muggy horrible summertime! Painting plein air in acrylics with a cold spell present I still add a medium to extend dry time as well as setting up the paint for palette knife application.
The following pieces are 12x16, on 225lb heavy linen paper using Chroma Interactive acrylics done in a loose expressionistic/impressionistic style. Also I wanted to use up tubes of paint that were 1/3 ( or less ) empty!
These were done in 2 plein air painting session - time spent about 1 - 1 1/2 hours each piece.

I love the blues in all of these. So rich and regal. I agree with CaliAnn - your palm trees are quite beautiful!

I remember your lovely aspens you used to paint with the palette knife. These palms are amazing all the colours and texture. My favourite is the last painting though, just awesome!
