New Plein Air Painting of Springwater

The shoreline at Springwater is so rich with colour and the beauty of these fallen trees and stumps. This is one of the several 14 x 7 inch paintings that I have painted from the Kayak this Fall. These small paintings are sometimes used back in the studio as references for painting larger versions but I also like the energy in the small ones that comes from painting outdoors.

Farm geese , 8.5 x 8 inches original oil

As the sun comes up I like to drive by my Amish farmer neighbours  and I am always rewarded with scenes that inspire paintings. This is a favorite spot where there are always geese of various kinds. Here I loved the sun and shadow effect as the birds moved in and out of the rising sun, the colours were fantastic. I chose coeruleum blue and magenta from the paint box which are two newer colours for me to try and achieve what I was after. This painting is for sale now at the Museum Londons gift shop until the end of December and prints are always available as well for many of my paintings.
