Sayville #2


Back in the saddle. I had to finish this one. I just wanted to paint the sky and water as it was. Grey and green not the bright blue I usually paint. I also wanted to get the motion of the water. I borrowed the color palette from Vic. I love the softness of his work.

  1. Hi Joan, nice to find you on the go! I have another week of limited studio time then hope to get stuck in for the year. A lovely limited palette, but I think you have little to "borrow" as your work has already been very soft and smoky lately. The colours here call up a specific mood and misty atmosphere!

  4. Hi Joan.
    As I commented on Mariano`s last posting, Brilliant, Brilliant and Brilliant. All three last postings. You have definitely got the movement of the water my friend. I only wish I could get the results from my palette as you do. All the best Joan.

  5. Hi Mariano, thank you. I had such a difficult time with this one, I wanted to capture the dreary atmosphere of that day plus the movement of the water. Thank you again, by the way,my daughter loves your latest still life. Happy painting.

  6. Oh yes my friend, you most certainly have captured wonderful results using your palette. You know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Between you and Mariano I have lots of work ahead of me. I'm off to try my hand with a palette knife. Thank you both for sharing. Happy painting

  8. Hi Jill, thank you for stopping by and for the very kind words. I am feeling better, thank you.

    Jill, I can't wait for the nice weather to start painting out doors. Have you seen Karen's blog. She was on vacation and painted wonderful plein air beach scenes. Well, like I said you both have inspired me to paint outdoors. Hope the cold snap doesn't last long for you.

    All the best
    Joan
