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.
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.
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.
