After the Rain - Red Umbrella

300 lb. paper

$15 & S.H.

 

Well what do you think - with the RED umbrella? And could this be considered rain? I think so.

Before I started the painting a rubbed candle was on the paper. The paper is heavy and has wonderful texture. By rubbing the candle wax on the paper it creates a resist for the painting.

Whad ya think?

Days of heavy rains, drench my spirit, creating internal gloom that seems will last an eternity.

Then one morning the sun is bright, the birds are singing, and everything feels all right.

After the Rain – comes the Sun

Zippo Challenge


This week’s challenge is The Zippo Challenge  

The challenge was to use a limited palette using Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue and White. The white of the paper is what is used for white when painting in watercolor.

To look at a photo of a Zippo lighter, reminded me of my dad, the smell and sound of the cigarette lighting ritual.

It’s getting late in the week and late in the day so I just thought I would knock out a little painting.  Recycling paintings that were not successful, I tear them up to use the back as a color swatch or a small painting (thumbnail). If framed I wasn’t sure if I would matt it because of the size – SO I taped off the perimeter. And I wanted to share the deckled edge that all of my paintings on paper have.

Happy Painting,
