Otisco Sunset , 5"x7" Sold

I've been working on small paintings for the upcoming Plowshares show. This one I'm planning on painting in a larger format for my solo show next year.

Very often I drive around scouting for locations to paint. As it's often the case, the perfect spot is right in the middle of the road, and I'm lucky if I get the chance to take a good photo for reference. I really felt lucky with this one.

Beautiful painting Adriana. I love the Fall colors...you did a great job with the trees and the mountains in the background.

You have created such great detail for such a small painting. The autumn colours are lovely. It will be interesting to see this as a larger painting.

I hope you'll post more of the paintings you have created for this show once it's on or over.

Hilda, Thank you. The mountains were hard but fun to do as one learns what colors and pastels work better together.

Elaine, Thanks. So far, my previous posting, Madison Gold, it's the first one for the show. I'm hoping to dedicate the whole month of Dec to paint at least 4 landscapes. You guys will be my witnesses! I need the pressure...

Nice one, Adriana! Gorgeous fall colors - in sun and in shade. That one phone pole that is split by the sun and shadow does it for me. Maybe it acts to pull both halves of the painting together? Keep up the great work!!!

Adriana Meiss said...

Thank you Donna! The pole did it for me too. Now I have to start thinking what to do with the road for the larger version. I'm afraid of the darks in the photo and in this one I tried to put more color in those areas...we'll see.

Cindy Michaud said...

Anxious to see the larger version and how you handle the road at the bottom!? Lovely piece. I need pressure as well so like you I boldly share goals....remember:we'll be watching you! Good luck.

Cindy, Thank you!. I have done more work on this piece, mostly on the road. I often forget how the dark areas look darker in photos, so I had to lighten those a bit.
