Fractured Landscape #2

Posted on by Wess Foreman

I’ve painted a similar painting before (thus the “#2” in the title) but never really returned to the idea until now. I like getting lost in the temperature changes of each successive hill—grays, reds, yellows, blues, violets. Just realized I probably should have named it Fractured Fields instead . . . the alliteration!

The Voices of the Trees

Posted on by Wess Foreman

When I started this one, the bright colors I used were simply going to be an under-painting for the more realistic landscape to come, but after I added the tree trunks on the left side, I knew it had to be a colorful abstract landscape. So I just went with it. It was like the trees had voices and wanted their own thing. The Voices of the Trees. Video below of the painting process!

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).

Deep Green 1, 30x30", $700

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).

Through the Wild Wood series

Posted on by Wess Foreman

This series began two years ago, really, as a set of four 36x24" paintings which were painted all at one time, the idea being they could be displayed as a group or individually. I had originally called them "Paysage Energique" (Energetic Landscape), but I am renaming them as "Through the Wild Wood---large". Here they are (all of them still available, by the way):

"Through the Wild Wood series---large", 36x24" and $500 each

The new set of Through the Wild Wood paintings are smaller, at 8x10", and available in both vertical and horizontal formats. I painted a batch of ten each to start with. These paintings are all similar in style and color and subject matter---indeed, they are painted in batches to ensure the consistent look across all paintings in the series (see video below of the painting process)---but they are each original pieces. Due to the nature of this series of paintings, I will not be posting each specific painting, only these few examples of the painting series---you understand.

Additionally, because of my rapid workflow and because they are painted on canvas panels instead of bulky traditional canvas, I am offering these 8x10"/10x8" paintings in the Through the Wild Wood series at a lower price-point than other paintings of this size and I am also offering free shipping! (Thought I'd make it easy to say, "yes.") Anyway here are the smalls:

Through the Wild Wood series---small, 10x8", $50 each w/free shipping

Through the Wild Wood series---small, 8x10", $50 each w/free shipping

City Park Bridge, no. 2

Posted on by Wess Foreman

I painted this image once before in a large format---this one is a more manageable 16x20". I achieved the texture with a combination of paint splatter, manual dotting with a brush, as well as using a sheet of bubble-wrap like a stamp, creating the overall "screen" effect. I really like how well this one turned out. I will probably be doing more in the future utilizing the bubble-wrap stamp technique. The video of the painting process is below.
