A few new ones









I've been getting some decent work done this winter. When it is dry out, I actually like painting in the winter more than the summer.

I tried a cityscape, which I don't do a lot of but was inspired after seeing some great work here. I get nervous painting around people, but I've been trying to force myself to do it anyway. There's really no way to paint without people coming by, no matter how remote of location you go to.

Beautiful subdued palettes here! Those last two are the best of the bunch IMO.

Nice work here ! The 3rd one is a very difficult subject but you did it perfectly.

Re: A few new ones

Thanks! It's funny how simple things can be so much fun to paint.

I though I had this in my signature, but Crits always welcome.

No crits here - they're all really evocative of the place.

Re: A few new ones

Good group!! I think all have good things going for them, but nos. 1 and 3 I think are very strong. Good sense of distance in the first and I think the handling of of the varied planes of the different reed and bush masses in the the 3rd is outstanding.

Re: A few new ones

Very nice work Norwest, and i agree with you on the winter painting with the small exception of the wind which can be a problem, or a solution to my indecision, just do it and then you can go home. Good luck out there and thanks greg

Nice work, I like the Winter stillness of the 1st and 3rd. The last is real nice as well.

Re: A few new ones

Thanks everyone, good to hear the feedback! It's funny, the 3rd one is my least favorite. I liked it until I got home, then it looked totally different. I resisted the urge to do anything brash though, and glad I because it seems to be going over pretty well.

Greg, wind can be a problem, but it's not too bad around here, except for the coast. My easel is pretty heavy, and I hook my bag on it to weigh it down a little.
