September 27, 2014 Sunset Lighthouse Painting

Tomorrow is my brother's Birthday. He loves and decorates his house with sea-theme, including lighthouse he and his wife purchase on their trips. I'm more of a mountain and forest girl, but today I painted Sunset Lighthouse theme to "celebrate" his birthday.

I painted this on 11x.14 inches canvas panel. I was using the paints from Americana acrylic paints: red, white, yellow, blue, green and black.

September 25, 2014 Forest in the Fall painting

I saw a tutorial painting by Ben Saber at youtube and he  made it look sooo easy. So I decided to try it myself. Since I used sta-wet palette, I was able to paint just few minutes a day and closed it up and my paints didn't dry out.
Anyways, the end result of this painting is not even close to the painting done by Ben Saber, but I did the best I could as a novice.

This painting is done on 16x20 stretched canvas. The acrylic colors I used: ivory black, titanium white, diox. purple dark, diox. purple light, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red medium, cadmium orange, burnt umber, cobalt blue, phtalo blue, magenta and payne's grey.

Sept 21, 2014 "Evening Flight" painting

I bought a used painting book by Jerry Yarnell. Since I love sunsets, I chose to paint "Evening Flight". The book has a lot more brighter and vivid colors, but I like a bit more subtle colors.
Also, the book has a lot of geese flying through. I was too afraid, so I painted 2 geese instead.
Oh, and I added a house to compromise all the other geese.

I used 16x20 inches stretched canvas. The paints are acrylic: titanium white, cadmium yellow light, cadmium orange, hooker green, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, purple and yellow green.
