Original oil painting Beach Girls by Karen Tarlton


12x12
Beach Girls
Oil

As time goes by so swiftly, I love to paint by memory moments that are etched in my mind like this, my daughters when they were little, hand in hand at the beach. They didn't often swim in the ocean but loved dancing at the edge of the waves and I can still hear their squeals of delight as each one crashes at their feet!

Pawley's Island Painting by Jill Saur


The smell of the ocean breeze and the lush inland marshes are what I love about Pawleys Island in South Carolina. This is a fairly new oil palette knife painting that I rendered in cobalt and turquoise blues.

"Symphony In Blue" is 14"x11"x.5" and is available to purchase by contacting me through my website.  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

"Dancing on Water" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

"Dancing on Water" ©2012 Niki Gulley
36” x 60” textured oil painting

Sunlight sparkles across aqua blue water,
diamonds of purple glitter the pond’s surface;
water lilies lift their faces toward the sun and gently dance across the water.
Golden sunlight filters through the brambles and ferns,
a touch of cardinal red peeks through purple and pink foliage
while azure skies reflect in the water.

Original oil painting Paris Love by Karen Tarlton


Paris Love
20x24
Oil

I love to combine all my favorite things into a painting! Of course anything Parisian is great but if you add flowers, colorful trees and a bit of romance, it's becomes a joyous memory and a feel good vision!
Romantic at heart that I am!
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."

Low Tide 10" x 10" Palette Knife Abstract Landscape by California Artist Janet Bludau


My underpainting of red shows through is several places.
Also typical of my paintings is a combination of palette knife and brush work.
My inspiration for this painting was the Newport Beach Back Bay.  The look of the bay changes by the day rather than the seasons.  Depending on low tide or high tide, there may be solid water from shore to shore or just strips and spots of water.

Pansies And The Maiden - "Drinking In The Muse" & Thoughts As You Progress Through A Painting by Roxanne Steed



11"x14" oil on Belgian linen mounted on archival panel

For purchase information AND additional demo photos, please visit my blog.

"Nobody lives happily ever after. We live happily when we live with a sense of purpose and when we are unafraid of living in a world in which things are seldom settled, few things are permanently improved, and where love does not take care of itself."
-Eugene Kennedy


Painting our favorite things is certainly a wonderful indulgence that any artist can partake in. I shipped this little statue home from my mom's house last year when she moved to a much smaller place and didn't have a place to put her. This bust stood on a pedestal next to the piano in the living room through the greater part of my childhood. I always admired this piece. I don't know why I've waited so long to paint her, but there you have it. The pansies I had bought during our warm weather frenzy last weekend, only to have a freeze come through on Monday. No worry, I decided they could stay and pose in my studio for a couple days before I put them back out on the front porch. "There's pansies, that's for thoughts" and I had a few thoughts to share in the 'building' of a painting:

- give yourself a map. No details necessary, but get the placement and proportion of your main elements. I tend to draw in paint, as I think it moves easier if I want to change something. You can also draw over what you've just laid down until you find that shape. If it gets too heavy, scrape it off, or use less paint. I don't use turps or thinners when I paint. I want the luscious thickness of oil paints on their own. You'll be laying paint on top of these anyway- they are NOT to "color in", but as a general guideline.

- think big SHAPES (not details) - SQUINT down with your eyes- that quickly removes any sense of detail and gives you the view of light vs. dark areas.

- pay attention to the EDGES - where do you want to make the viewer look? Crisp, hard edges at your focal point, softer edges that recede from view (you know the childhood saying, "Made ya look, made ya look!").

- if you don't like it, scrape it off! But you don't have to throw away the paint! Sometimes these make nice grays to tone down some very loud passages.

Once I get mid-way into a painting, I find that it's hard to stop and photograph! Something just takes over and I keep going. Yes, this does have both palette knife and brush in this painting. After years of using strictly one or the other, I am experimenting with employing both in the painting.

Original oil painting Tuscany Villa Flowers by Karen Tarlton

Tuscany Flowers
9x12
Oil

I love painting something really old with thick, chunky oils generated with my little palette knife!
I can create thick cracks and stonework detail this way and really get the old Italy feeling!
Italy is my happy place and I hope it brings a smile to you too!
Palo Verde & Wash plein air oil 10"x8"
Today I went out into the desert by my home. I found this little spot in a wash during the morning. I needed to simplify the wash with a more solid shadow and less rocks keeping it less busy.

Milford Sound by Lisa Elley

Milford Sound. 2012. 9 X 12. Oil on Canvas. 100% Palette Knife


Milford Sound was deemed the eight wonder of the world
 by Rudyard Kipling, and is New Zealand's
 most popular tourist destination.
The sheer walls of the fiord rise 3900 ft
 and it is one of the wettest places on earth,
 hence the lush greenery and occasional tree avalanche
 into the cold waters where dolphins, seals,
 penguins and whales can be seen.

Monet's Garden painting by Niki Gulley & upcoming Art Trek to Paris

SOLD • "Radiance" ©2012 Niki Gulley
Three 48" x 30" canvases to form a 48" x 90" triptych
textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just sold! I decided it would be a fun challenge to create an extremely large painting, and I wanted the final piece to be very uplifting, colorful and full of energy. Opting for warm colors and working with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives, I chose this lily pond reference from our visit to Monet's Gardens in Giverny, France. The grounds were breathtaking and I could actually see his paintings come to life. I was drawn to the energetic flow and yet calming serenity in this view, and I positioned the water lilies and my paint strokes in a circular pattern to add to that mood. The morning light peeking through the distant foliage added to a sense of mystery and promise that I wanted to capture in paint, and share with you that feeling of hope.

The Path oil landscape by Arizona artist Becky Joy

The Path 9x12 oil $550.
Click here to buy.

Hello everyone!

 This morning I went out painting at North Mountain Park in Phoenix. I found a place in a wash to paint the wash and a palo verde tree. I found it to very frustrating. I had no yellow in my paints. Not good! I tried, but it was just too limited of a palette, especially trying to create sunlight. So, I wiped some of the painting off and have a simple composition. I decided I will go out there tomorrow and try it again. I made sure and got the yellow in my backpack now. After all that, I came back to the studio and painted another painting.

 This painting is reminiscent of a Montana scene that I saw of a fence off in a field. I worked with the composition and came up with the path leading to the break of the fence and into the woods. This gives a sense of mystery. I wanted the feeling of full afternoon sun.

“LIQUID SPARKLE”
5x7 ORIGINAL OIL ON MASONITE PANEL
By TOM BROWN

At moments like this I need to paint fast or forget it. The sun doesn’t wait and colors fade faster than a politician’s promises.

I set up the small pochade paintbox you’ve seen in many of my YouTube videos. Then grabbed a palette knife to paint this one; it’s the quickest way to clean, decisive colors and speed was critical.

I got it in the nick of time, just before it was gone forever. Now I’ve got these sparkling colors locked in place to enjoy again and again. Hope you like it too.

"Sioux Warrior Sitting" by Kathryn Willis

Sioux Warrior Sitting,12x9, oil on panel, Kathryn Willis

After recent figure painting workshops, I'm trying to bring what I've learned to my own work before I forget what I've learned. This painting was done in life drawing session this week. Dressed in deer skin pants and brightly colored weavings, the model represents a Plains Indian warrior, probably Sioux, from the 1800's.
