Re: Weekly Paintings - past - present & future

Late Spring Thaw - 18 x 24 - heavy linen paper - Chroma Interactive acrylics done in an Impressionistic style. The plains in the high desert can retain their snows for a long time, the sun being closer initiates the melting but the coldness of the altitude retards the melting cycle for a while. The remaining snow shown is the white of the paper untouched by paint - I find this method much more interesting than using white paint and the visual effect more pleasing to the eye.

Beautiful work, Richard! I agree - the technique of leaving white areas is really effective and attractive as snowy areas. Beautiful work!

Re: Weekly Paintings - past - present & future

Thanks Jenna - appreciate your feedback - for some reason lately I'm hooked on winter scenes - and as you know I totally dislike winter & snow but love to paint it!

Re: Weekly Paintings - past - present & future

End Of Winter Coming - Another in the series of "Plains Paintings" - 18 x 24 heavy linen paper - Chroma Interactive acrylics - big brush - alla prima done in a loose Impressionistic style with some gusto. High country NM. Once again the snow is represented by the untouched white of the paper. As usual I start with a very loose (directional lines only) charcoal sketch.

Re: Weekly Paintings - past - present & future

Excellent work! I like all the clumps of snow. As spring nears, I always enjoy watching those last few, shadowed, snowy areas shrink and shrink. I'm not a big fan of winter, either. Beautiful work!

The Great Western Pains - 12 x 18 heavy linen paper - Chroma Interactive acrylics - large brush - alla prima. Autumn brings some very reddish fiery colors to the plains.

I like the swaths of light and dark on those distant mountains. Another great piece!
