Pear Leaves in Autumn

PearLeavesFall

10″ x 10″ Acrylic impasto on canvas paper, linealist style. 2015. Gaining facility with the technique. Planning a show for the November time-frame. This painting will hang diagonally, with the upper right corner being at the top. After finishing another 2-3 paintings of more simple objects I will begin using the technique with portraits of uncritical and uncomplaining family members.

Common Thistle Bloom

CommonThistle

9″ x 9″ Acrylic impasto on canvas paper, linealist style. 2015. Attempting to further refine the “linealist” concept, working with only a palette knife to compose a painting using only short lines of pigment. Using a combination of texture and color to enhance contrast in order to separate figure from ground. Working from a photo I took in my yard using my tablet’s camera.

Monarch Butterfly on Frostweed

10″ x 10″ Acrylic impasto on canvas paper, linealist style. 2015. Pigment applied using palette knife only. Attempting techniques learned in Maria Lyle’s Illustration Techniques class last year at ACC. Referencing a work photo I took last autumn in my yard, when we had an unusually heavy butterfly migration through here lasting several weeks.
