Water’s Edge Winter

Water’s Edge Winter – Tonal Study

I’ve stalled on a fairly complex painting at the moment. So today, I went to a coffee painting demonstration done by my friend and fellow artist Jean Leung, at Tides Contemporary Art Gallery in New Minas.

Her work was inspiring so I went home and I painted the above scene while winter still has its grip on us. My limited palette included ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and raw sienna but no coffee.

Working mostly wet in wet and adding pigment at different stages of drying created the various hard and soft edges. This is based loosely on technique and composition used by other artists I’ve seen and is purely for practice.

Tomorrow I hope to get past the masking stage of the larger piece I’m working on. Some coffee may help with that… but I’ll take it decaf with cream and sugar please.
