Stonybrook Harbor Acrylic


I have posted several of my Stonybrook harbor paintings.

The first one being a work in progress. I have started in acrylic, using and under painting of red oxide. Using layers of glazes. It is no where near completion. Lots of fun.

The second was completed 16x20 oil on canvas panel.

The 5x7 was an actual oil study done on location.
As you can see I have this love of Stonybrook harbor.
Happy Painting everyone.

  1. Hi Joan.
    All gorgeous paintings but the last one is my favourite. My you are producing lovely works of Art. I have noticed that you have a style of your own. If I saw your work amongst others, I could pick it out strait away my friend. We all want a style of our own don`t we? All the best Joan.

    P.S. Look up an English Artist by the name of Brian Ryder. He lives and paints in Norfolk, England.

  3. Hi Joan!.... What a beauty this first piece is.... such warmth and grangeur!

    The iron oxide underpainting really creates a wonderful base for the mood that you have here. I love the looseness and restraint that you have used here... it's already a winner in my humble opinion! Real growth!

    THis is favourite piece so far on your blog! Keep up the wonderful work!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  4. Love the compositions...the red oxide one actually looks really cool in its current state. Also I really like the way you developed the study into the larger one...not an easy thing to do!

  5. They are all so beautiful, serene. I don't know how you manage to work so quickly.

    I agree with Victor.. you certainly have a style that is your own. Lovely work Joan.
