In keeping with our negative painting practice, we painted big prairie clouds at the lodge this week. The idea was to use negative painting techniques to get the strong white edges on the clouds, then go back in to make the insides three dimensional. These ladies are landscape painters so they each finished their painting in their own way.
Two watercolourists making lunch for 4 and a chocolate mousse cake. It all worked!
One winter morning an orange hue was cast over the whole view. It was particularly striking in combination with the boxcars lined up just outside town. The colours and perspective held great promise for a painting. A few years later, here’s the result, almost finished.
We painted bears! And a capybara. And a bison.
In the thick of harvest time, storms were rolling in and thwarting farm schedules. The dark skies showed up the glowing light on golden crops, and in the hills of the creeks. Judy’s painting is in our Fairview show until the end of October.
Judy whipped off a painting one day, framed it and sent it to a show. It has already come back and been placed in another show. It moves as fast as a storm can gather!
