Peace & Solitude in Art, My Painting Canoeing Peaceful Solitude



This is my painting, Canoeing Peaceful Solitude.   The scene reminded me of the peace I felt when I was a child canoeing at camp. I wanted to convey this calm and peace in my painting. I used a horizontal format. My brushstrokes were smooth and I limited my textures. I used low contrast with my color values (light, dark, gray scale) and saturation (intensity, purity).  When I first saw the scene I knew my objective and considered the elements of art I would use to convey this objective.

This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).

Beauty and Movement in Art, My Painting "Baseball Pitch"



In my painting, Baseball Pitch, I wanted to convey the beauty and movement of the sport.  I again blurred the edges as soft edges are necessary to convey movement. The gesture and cast shadow of the pitcher is important in emphasizing movement. The postures of the catcher, batter and umpire create a triangular shape that links them together.

This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used only virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet). I did not use software aids, i.e. filters, effects.

In my painting, Runners, I wanted to convey the speed and movement of the figures.  I used a horizontal format giving the runners the space to move forward on the track. I also blurred the edges as soft edges are necessary to convey movement. There is a gap between the right runner’s front leg and cast shadow; this helps convey movement. Uniforms are similar in color helping the viewer’s eyes connect the figures.

This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used only virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet). I did not use software aids, i.e. filters, effects.

Confrontation in Art, My Painting "Hockey Face Off"




This is my painting, Hockey Face Off. I wanted to convey the confrontation of the players during a face off. I used contrast of color to create a sense of confrontation. The back player is in dark values (gray scale). His dark mask faces the viewer. The player in front has different hues (colors) and values.  I chose a close up view that fills the support and magnifies the 2 players on the picture plane.

Drama in Art, My Painting "Basketball Slam Dunk"





This is my painting, Basketball Slam Dunk. I wanted to convey the drama at the basketball hoop. I felt the best method to convey drama was contrast of value (gray scale). I have added a gray scale image to help you see the different values. The player with the ball has a dark value on his arm under the ball. There is light shining along his upraised arm. This player’s dark uniform contrasts with the lighter uniforms of the other players. The abstract background shape on the right follows the oblique shape of the main player.
