The Path

I love hiking and I have this thing with taking pictures of hiking trails. There is something about a picture of path that makes me want to know where it goes…human element of curiousity…it’s the same thing that keeps me hiking on paths over the next hill or around the next bend. I wanted to share such a picture from somewhere in the coastal forest of Washington State. In my galleries, I have taken the original picture and done it in two styles of watercolor, since watercolor painting gives the scene a softer look.

This first art print is done in what I would refer to as a traditional style of watercolor. The brush strokes are subtle and the shading gives the picture more texture and depth, yet stays true to the original picture.  Next…..

The pointillism style is just what it says…many points of color to create a picture. It renders an even softer scene and is more suggestive of the subject matter as opposed to the first one.

The “P” Barn

From a photo shoot I did last February around the Amana Colonies in Iowa, I have added the attached art print to my Landscape Oil Gallery.  I found this interesting barn (I truly do not know what the “P” is for).  The barn takes on an interesting element when we see it done in a Fauvism style of oil painting. It creates a more abstract image.

Below is the original photograph inspiring the painting.
