Notes on a Landscape: Spoonbills

Posted on by Wess Foreman

Third in the “Notes…” series. The addition of the halos (are they halos or is there another name for this type?) elevate this image to a whole new level for me. Without them, the birds are just birds. With them, the viewer takes a moment of reflection—-what does this mean? should I be more reverent? should I be angry about this? why?—-the effect of which is interesting. And hey, what more can I ask for than interesting artwork. I added the painting process video below.

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.

It's been awhile since since I've painted a dog portrait without it being a commission. This one went quick. I completed it in two painting sessions, and I achieved the somewhat abstracted, somewhat off-kilter look I was aiming for. The simple orange/blue color scheme works great. What else can I say: I am pleased with this painting. (video of the painting process will be uploaded to my YouTube channel in a few short hours) Contact me if interested in purchasing this painting or commissioning one of your own.

I've been enjoying a bit of painting these last few days after a couple of weeks off. I expect to have many new paintings by the time my next art market comes around (New Orleans Art Market in Palmer Park, July 27th, 10am-4pm). So, that's exciting. Nothing else to say about this painting. It's an alligator. I added a bit of charcoal pencil at the end for added texture & interest. More to come.
