Finished WIP "Old Canoe' Fall painting
'Old Canoe' 14 x 11" on Ampersand Gessobord
Photo of the finished piece. It is at the scanners so I will have a better pic for making prints. I am not a very good photographer so I get them scanned so customers can order large prints that will be crisp and clear. The colors in the original piece are brighter - especially the canoe.
I love fall and painting fall scenes. This reference photo was courtesy of Wet Canvas, a great tool for artists with no strings attached. People have told me that I like bright colors. I guess I do if that is what the piece calls for. I can just as easily use more subdued colors for the right painting. Check out 'Pont Vecchio Landscape' below. This painting is from a photo taken on a dark day in the morning. Visit http://lynne-reichhart.artistwebsites.com/ to purchase prints of this piece. Prints of 'Old Canoe' will be available shortly once I get the scanned image back.
