Just Because I Like Geese and Warm Colors ... Geese-in-progress ...

I thought this was too beautiful a composition to not finish, so I flipped the painting over, and traced the geese onto the back, and started again.

Using the same colors throughout ... hansa yellow, alizarin crimson and indanthrone blue


Removed the masking last night, and did a bit of touching up and detail work this morning ... VOILA! DONE! I really like the hot colors, and the shapes caused by sunlight on their feathers.

Seagull Study
10 x 6.5 in.

I did this quick [for me] study of a seagull earlier this week ...



... and prepared three images for the class on Saturday. I've done the daylily before, but the class liked it a lot, and wanted to try it, so I'll be painting it again. The two landscapes will be excellent practice for flowing w/w washes for the sky and water.

It has finally stopped raining. For a while there, I thought I might have to build an ark for the animals! So I am heading out to play with Bruno - YAY!!!!! And I have an old university chum coming over this afternoon, with her husband, to help me finally set up a web site for my art.

That's life on The Farm today. Thank you so much for dropping by!

  4. Oh my Kathryn - those geese are a gorgeous gaggle. Your colors are fantastic and they just glow. Looks like some wonderful drawings for your class too. Hope you will be developing that Seagull into a painting - looks like it could be a winner for sure. Please give Bruno a hug for me - so glad you didn't have to build an ark. (:!!

  8. Kathryn, mi felicitación nuevamente por sus trabajos. Es Ud. una magnífica dibujante y utiliza la acuarela con gran dominio de la luz y el color. Buena muestra de ello es el último trabajo de los gansos y la cabeza de la vaca. Enhorabuena por todos, gracias por sus comentarios en mi blog y mucho ánimo en sus trabajos.
