Blue / Se7en is the Magic Number

I'm immediately drawn to paintings containing the colour blue. There are so many nuances from dark phthaloblue, bright ultramarine and sky blue right through to turquoise. Blue harmonises with all colours and mixes well with white. I'm a fan of ceruleum blue mixed with a dash of white. Do you have a favourite blue?

The Colour Red / Searching for Enlightenment

I love red, but a little goes a long way. It is a hard colour to paint with.

Too much and it's garish, too dark and it can be dull. It is difficult to lighten as adding white turns it pink, and not many reds make a good pink. Adding yellow can lighten it, but this will send it into the orange tones. For me, there is always a lot of toing and froing with reds, to get that shade 'just right'.

"Thames River, London" by Arlon Rosenhoff

Did a painting at the Safety Net fundraiser last Thursday. Great organization founded by Molly Allen in Spokane that helps kids that grow up in the foster care system and still need support after they turn 18. Painting was auctioned at the end of the evening with 100% of the proceeds going to help kids. The theme was travel, inspiring kids to try and go out and experience the world, so I did an international scene of the Thames River and London.

Living in Mystery - using purple

My Impressionist landscapes of Provence always contained purple for the obvious reason. Since concentrating on abstracts, I'm using less purple but it can still be found in a few paintings. 

I find that it's a good foil to the other colours, often setting them off nicely. Green can really be made to pop with an adjacent patch of purple. It can easily be toned down to a purple grey by adding green, and this is enhances yellows and creams.

Small Oil Abstract Paintings in Orange

Generally when I talk to people at trade fairs, there is a misconception that small paintings are quick to do. For me it's quite the opposite, unless I am doing a limited time trial to loosen up. Often there is just as much planning and thought in these small paintings as in larger paintings and per square inch, there can actually be more time involved. It's very satisfying completeing a series of small paintings although coming up with good compositions for all of them can be challenging.

Here are two more from my new series (10 in all) this time in orange colourways.

Sigh ... sadly out of the sender's control :-( This is a little thank you gift sent to a buyer in Australia who had to wait about 6 weeks for "The Big Pink" painting she had ordered to arrive .... here's "Mixed Posy" ...

Miniature Treasures Oil Abstracts

At the moment, I use acrylic on most of my abstracts, but sometimes I get the urge to dive into thick luscious oil paint. I think there is just something about digging your palette knife into thick oil paint and laying it on the canvas. I created a set of 6x6 inch paintings on deep canvas as an antidote to some of the larger paintings I had been painting. Some were in reds and others were in oranges.
Here are a couple of the red ones.

New Work by Marion Hedger on Etsy.



For the last two years I have been ignoring my Etsy shop while I concentrate on my new direction of abstracts.

I've always had good sales on Etsy, and now I am revitalising it with some of my abstracts and gradually sprucing it up with better photos.

At the moment I have concentrated on adding my smaller format art on paper and on box canvasses. I have also added a some self-print files where you can download electronic version of my art to print at home for your own use.

Pop over to my Etsy shop and have a look. Your feedback will be valued.

Works on Paper available here. Ready to frame, with a white mount, for a standard 24x30cm frame.

Oil canvas abstracts available here.

Digital Prints available here

Living in Mystery

LIVING IN MYSTERY
by Marion Hedger
Acrylic and mixed media on canvas
Finished with varnish and 
a layer of wax to give a nice sheen that addes additional depth.
80x80cm x4 cm deep

"The contrasting shapes and differences between the solid and ethereal areas can be used as an analogy of the differences in rock and sky or how life works, sometimes very sure and other times more uncertain perhaps when we are trying new things."

Contrasting paint treatement

This painting uses both flat areas of paint and soft scumbled areas to give an interesting contrast.

I used to be a fan of scumbling when I first started using acrylics many years ago, but haven't done any for while. I used to attack the canvas with vigour using a bristle brush barely containing any paint. It'd take a while to get the right effect using one colour on top of another, but I was often away in the 'zone' and wore down many a paint brush. The beautiful soft effect and colours achieved was worth the time. I couldn't quite get back to the zen part with this painting but I like the ethereal effect which contrasts nicely with the more opaque and trasparent paint areas.

PS
 I still have some of those paint brushes laying about - what can I say, I'm a hoarder.

Taking a Risk

Work in Progress
40x40cm on box canvas
Acrylic


Sometimes you need to take risks to challenge yourself.
This one started in my usual way with large blocks of colour, orange and light blue, and then smaller different blocks of colour on top letting some of the first colour show through.

I looked at it and thought "Why not go for it and drew some thick black lines and a circle . From there it gradually evolved to where it is now going more instinctively. I didn't overthink it and just went with the flow.

I enjoyed myself painting it and I am pleased with how it has turned out so far. Still some work to do, mainly tidying it up and looking at values, but it worked out quicker than many more of my more 'thoughtful' paintings.

Is the motto, "When it feels right, just go for it?"
