Week 31 – Yellow Leaves & Birds, color study

This is another color study, and I decided to go with something similar to this palette for the larger painting.

Week 30 – Red Leaves & Bird, color study

I have started on a larger painting, 24" x 36" of this subject matter. Before I put paint to panel, I did a couple of small color studies.

Week 29 – The Reserve at Sunset (South Africa)

I have a few paintings coming up that are not *technically* one a week. I worked on this diptych for a couple of weeks. And I have already done the paintings that I plan to post for the next two weeks. I'm going with the spirit of the "law" rather than the letter.
This diptych is the first painting that I have done that is inspired by our travel to South Africa in June of 2013. We did a short safari in the bush north of Pretoria. I have a lot of good reference photos, so there should be more to come. Also, I'd like to keep working on this same subject/landscape. Maybe try a new approach.

Oil on wood panel, 10" x 10" and 8" x 10" $300 (or individually, $225 and $150), prints available.

Week 28 – Autumn Shadow, Study

There are some small areas that I really like on this painting, but overall I wish I had had more time to spend on it. It does not feel finished to me. So, I'm labeling it a "study." Maybe I will do a larger, more complete version one day.
