Ethereal Landscape

Posted on by Wess Foreman

I would almost describe this as a Candy Land landscape, the randomly distributed dobs of color recalling gumdrop shapes across the bright landscape. A land where the sky is painted-in with drippy white paint and all the cares of humanity are stripped away just long enough to capture it on canvas. (video of the painting process added below)

Courage, Kitten

Posted on by Wess Foreman

This is one of the few images I’ve painted directly from my imagination instead of relying on a reference photo. It comes across as a painted cartoon, and I’m fine with that. This is the third time I’ve painted this image, this time spanning two canvases.

Deep Green

Not one but two new paintings in the same style. A more subdued, quiet style from me, perhaps, but I like it. Contact me if interested; and keep in mind, I can paint similar paintings in any size you'd like (would love to paint an extra-large version, for instance---hint, hint).

Echoes and Shadows

Posted on by Wess Foreman

An interesting, quirky painting that started from a simple reference photo of a crowd on the street. The final touch that made it work for me, ultimately, was the addition of the shadows on the walls and abstract figures hidden in the clouds. I bounced around several titles, finally landing on the current one which somehow works (might start a new series based on this one).

Lego Duck

I chose the subject matter on a whim really, but I'm glad I did. Painting small live objects (as opposed to painting from a photograph or computer screen) is a valuable exercise for the artistic mind. There's just something different about it---if nothing else, it presents a nice change of pace (though I'm sure there is something more to it than that---I'm just not putting my brain on it at present).

Anyway. Lego Duck. Or chicken. Or bird---it doesn't matter to me. I like how the painting turned out. I've added the painting video below. Thanks!
