Paintings Archive 4/12

I am continuing to work with watercolor for my underpainting. I found a prepared panel called Aquaboard that I have been trying out with some success. Preparing panels can take days and I never seem to have one the size I need so a product like Aquaboard will save me a lot of trouble. The Weeki Wachee painting was a commissioned piece. I usually don't take much commission work but it was the Weeki Wachee. It worked out well.


Completed Paintings

 Mason Creek, FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

7" x 15"



This painting has been on the shelf awhile now. It was to be a simple small painting but became troublesome. I lost the sense of what I wanted to do with it so it sits. Lately I've been thinking it isn't that bad and I should finish it.

Size: 7" x 15"

Chassahowitzka, FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

8" x 16"



The location for this painting is the Chassahowitzka River. I haven't painted it in awhile. I am hoping for a strong composition with the river and light in a longer format than I usually paint in.

FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

9" x 13"



I'm embarrassed to say that I don't recognize the location of this painting. I have a hazy memory of taking the photos I used for reference. I remember liking the assorted textures of the trees and their reflection in the water. For the painting I initially planned to use a color for the sky, the water, and the birds as the basis for the composition.

FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

Located along the Waccasassa River this painting will be more about the Great Blue Heron. It is a bit different from the other landscapes I've done at this size.

FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

Early morning in Steinhatchee, I hope to use the subtle values (black and white) in this painting to define the space.

FL Landscape painting by Chas Rowe

9" x 14"



This is another small painting. It is along Mason Creek on a day I had very nice light for photography. What interests me will be the composition.

Weeki Wachee River

16" x 24"



The location is the Weeki Wachee River. This is going to be a complicated painting. It has a lot of texture, I've changed much of the forest from my reference, and the lighting is only in my head. It should be fun.
