Kirkland #17

Kirkland #17 oil on arches oil paper 4" x 5"


What a dark day! The trees in the front are almost the same value as the sky and the dark grand tree sort of hovers in the middle, weird.

Hey this is the first one I actually cropped the tree in this one. This painting shines in the sun, it's interesting how it shines, probably from the walnut oil I'm starting to use more.

I love how the sky is never the same, there's always something different.

This has a bit of mystical quality to it. I like how all the trees feel glued together in the scene.

In the last few weeks I've been doing a few prints and drawings, I tend to slow down a bit on painting when I'm doing a graphite drawing. I'm not sure if I'll post my drawings since they're so light but I'm going to post a few more of these Kirkland paintings, then some still life.

Kirkland #12 5" x 4" oil on arches oil paper


It's fortunate that I'm always blessed with a good view. The woods have this beautiful mauve coral color going on especially when it rains.

Kirkland #11

Kirkland #11 4" x 5" oil on arches oil paper


The more I paint this scene the more I see the differences between each day. These paintings are becoming more about the atmosphere and lighting than the trees. I have a bigger 12" x 16" painting that I'm working on in coordination with these tiny oil sketches.
