2 Paintings; 2 Color Palettes

As promised in my last post on September 17, 2014, I have been working with various color palettes.  The first work represents a typical "green" palette that I use for plein air in our part of Virginia.  I was able to utilize a warm golden glow in the lower right as some of the grasses had already turned yellow in the last days of summer.  That color and the warm brown of the cabin helped balance the cool greens and blues of the foliage.

The second work represents the start of a new series inspired by Snow Canyon State Park in Utah.  This incredible landscape can only be expressed by using a different color palette.  I chose to work this series using plaster covered burlap attached to a wooden cradle.   That surface allowed the golden  ochres, turquoise, and burnt reds to cover the plaster as well as to sink into the burlap.

The "Douthat Cabin in the Woods" will be part of the art show at Ikenberry Orchard in Daleville, Va. 
Along with the other Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge  I will set up on the covered porch from 9 AM- 3 PM.  A portion of all sales will benefit the Lord Botetourt High School FFA.  

Come for the fresh apples, pumpkins, baked goods and art!
