Thursday/Friday


On Thursday our art discussion group talked about heightening drama in a painting. There seemed to be a consensus that contrast is a good strategy. To see what everyone brought, go HERE.

Drama! This one is really nice too. You are on a roll I think:)

Contrast is always an eye catcher. Interesting to read what people think about creating emotion and mood.

Gorgeous sky, Celeste and I love your other painting of the sky as well. Visiting the other artists' never disappoint me. They do a wonderful job on the paintings as well.!

I so agree with your group regarding contrast. Recently I was in Maine and found contrast minimal considering the amount of humidity in the air. I didn't paint Maine well and wonder how others feel about that. I am not talking about Pea Soup Fog here either.

That dramatically bruised sky is just phenomenal and I love how the colors tie to the distant mountains!

Hello Celeste! I have been so very busy lately! Have been visiting your blog and checking out your wonderful art and text. Need to make time to comment! I am "out here" though!
Love the sky in this piece. I love the way you rendered the clouds. Great drama here buddy!
Take care Celeste and keep on painting!
Michael
