Pink Sherbert – Featured Art Print

Pink Sherbet

This week I wanted to feature one of my abstract prints. This particular print reminds me of frozen sherbert, especially the colors. Growing up in the midwest (Iowa), ice cream was the dessert of choice and for whatever reason I just didn’t care for it. On a visit to my grandparents house one year, I was introduced to frozen sherbert (the days before Sorbet was readily available). I love the rainbow variety and the different fruit flavors. Something about the consistency and vibrant colors appealed to me and I was converted. To this day, I’m still not an ice cream person, but love a good sorbet. That is how the title came to fruition and the next question should be…”I get that abstract art can be very esoteric, but what in the world are these shapes and colors based on?” Great question and the answer will probably surprise you.

This print was created from a photograph taken of the sun setting over a very foggy ocean. My wife and I were traveling up the Northern California coastline and had stopped for the night. A very thick layer of fog was rolling in just as the sun was going down. The scene went from where you could hardly see the water or the waves breaking to a bright spot of light and massive color display in the fog reflected off of the water to hardly seeing the ocean again. From the picture, I worked with this particular technique (Impasto…bold brush strokes) and chose this color palette until I had what I was envisioning for an abstract print. Thoughts?

Yellow And Purple – Featured Art Print

 

“Yellow and Purple” This particular print is an abstract expression that I had fun creating by drawing the shapes and creating the colors in a very simplistic style. Both were created using a digital free hand drawing and painting technique. I think the end result presents a fun, colorful and clean contemporary design. Thoughts?

The Old Farm – Featured Art Print

 

The Old Farm – is an art print I wanted to feature today. Is it colorful or does it grab your attention? Probably not, but what I like about it, is the fact it tells a story. The story is an obvious one, an old farm that has fallen into disrepair. When I came upon this scene in Eastern Iowa during the winter months, I loved the potential of composing a shot that would portray the feel of the property. I framed the scene using the barn as part of the foreground, with the dilapidated house in the background. The gate serves as a visual focal point pulling your eye towards the house. The final element for this particular art print was using a watercolor technique, which softens and darkens the scene slightly creating more of the mood. Thoughts?

Saguaro Cactus in Subtle Abstract – Featured Art Prints

I just completed adding some new art prints to my Abstract Subtle Gallery and wanted to share two of them. Both are of the Saguaro Cactus found here in the Sonoran Desert. I used a subtle watercolor technique creating an abstract look to both of the prints. I like an abstract approach to some subject matters, whether it’s big and bold like my last post or subtle like these. It allows the eye to absorb the color and suggestive shapes. This particular approach creates a subdued look to complement a look and not dominate it.

Sketched Palm Trees from Papago Park: Featured Art Prints

As a follow-up to a post I did early last November titled: A Pond at Papago Park, I have attached three art prints that came from that photo shoot. In these prints, I used a sketching and watercolor technique of the palm trees surrounding and reflected off the pond at Papago Park. I have recently added them to my Tropical Gallery.
