Thank you for being a subscriber to artists reflections. Please enjoy these next two videos of quick paintings done on location by the ocean side. One is at Belcarra and the other on Galiano Island.
In my videos I hope to bring to you what I find enjoyable about painting outdoors. Plein Air painting is really the only way to experience the place at a given moment.
While filming on location has proved challenging, often requiring several shoots, I feel it is a means of bringing this experience to you and that makes all the work rewarding. Peter from Vancouver Video Production has done a great job on these too. I hope you like them.
This shows AN EXPRESSIVE 16 X 20 ABSTRACTED LANDSCAPE PAINTED IN 37 MINUTES ON LOCATION AS A STUDY IN OILS. THE WINDSWEPT SEASHORE OF GALIANO ISLAND WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS COLOURFUL EXPRESSION WHICH outlines my INTUITIVE painting method USING VARIOUS BRUSHWORK, COLOURS AND EVEN A RUBBER TEXTURING TOOL. ALL THESE WERE USED TO PRACTICE SKILLS IN PAINTING BOTH WITH TRANSPARENT AND SOFT PASSAGES AS WELL AS BOLD OPAQUE BRUSHWORK TO MAKE A COLOURFUL ABSTRACT EXPRESSION. What I liked about this piece include: “REPEATED PATTERNS, COLOUR EXCITEMENT AND SURPRISES, RHYTHM IN THE BRUSH STROKE AND SOME RENDERING OF EMOTION I felt in the place”.
THIS VIDEO SHOWS A direct PAINTING method IN FAST MOTION AND IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF A QUICK 37 STROKES PAINTING Study. FEATURING MUSIC BY CAMBELL AND GREEN, sung by my friend Cailin Green who manages to focus on the beauty of the day no matter what comes our way.
May you too find happiness on your way, Jane
