Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

This was one for the June Different Strokes challenge - on mountboard - approx 13"x9.5" (odd size as these are all off-cuts of the boards from framing!)
It's the Gatineau Park image from the references.

I chose this one as I seldom do landscapes and needed to try to stay loose! It was an enjoyable couple of hours painting!

Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

I can't say why this is my favorite except that perhaps I feel stronger in this new style I've been using. It's fun for me though not as easy as I originally thought it would be. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1361379

Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

This was an experiment ITSO Leroy Nieman. Pushed the palette to enhance the action. Donated it to minor league booster club for their silent auction. Turned out it never made it to the auction table. The GM of the baseball team has it hanging in his office. He bought it for $25.

Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

It was fun to paint this Christmas card using my brother-in-law and his grandchildren, influenced by the style of Raphael.

Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

Done from a photo I took at a local museum. This one was a bit challenging because of overexposure of the view outside and the shading on the log walls. But I like how it turned out in the end.

10x8" on canvas board

A picture from a photo I took in 2010 while on a trip to Ireland. I think it's my best from last year, but it's also where my mother used to spend summers with her mother when she was a small child in the 1930s.

Re: Acrylic Best of 2014 show.

I painted this one actually right towards the end of the year. The title is "Rising" and depicts my German Shorthaired Pointer on point with a flushing pheasant. I chose this piece for two reasons; 1. I feel this is the best work on any structure that I've done so far and still being relatively new, I feel I made some good strides in this work; 2. I ended up giving this painting to my Grandfather for his 92nd birthday and he really enjoyed it.
