Recently I bought some new pastels -- the 120 Unison Half Stick set. It's heaven in a box. Beautiful colors. To experiment I tried to push myself with some color. Quite happy with the results.

RED BARN :: 8x10" pastel

RED BARN
original pastel, 8x10"
$175 unframed +$10 shipping
I've visited this particular subject before and so I enjoyed pushing the color and revisiting it in numerous tries each time making new color experiments. So proud of the blues in the shadows, particularly on the left side. This piece is on archival pastel board and looks more vibrant in person -- if possible!!

Ah, Nantucket! This pastel of Brant Point Light captures the light at dawn. I woke early and braved the insane scourge of mosquitoes to get here but was it ever worth it! Great references that day.

It's OPENING DAY at Fenway so spring must be here! It was such fun to paint detail without adding too much detail. In the end love how this piece came out. Hope you do, too.

SALT MARSH SPRING
original pastel, 6x6"
$125 + $10 shipping
Ah, spring and marshes! These things make me so happy!! After a winter that beat us all up here in the northeast, it's nice to see sprigs of green popping up.

This piece, SALT MARSH SPRING, was painted from memory -- a big thing for me. I also pushed some color and had SUCH FUN doing so.

Thanks for looking! -kmw

Foray into oils

Pastels are wonderful artist tools. The pigment in your hand can be wielded with aplomb, leaving streaks and strokes on the surface. Each stroke is clean and so telling. I love working with them. Often, though, I talk to people of oils and their luminous surface quality - so very beautiful. On our family vacation I brought oils and my pastels.

FOUR STUDIES
original oils, each 6x6"
The pastel I worked on during vacation is still in process, but these four oils I can post now. They were fun to play with. It had been TOO LONG since I played with these buttery paints. All of these paintings need to be revisited and tweaked for various reasons, but I figured I'd show them now.

Value, color, design, composition -- with oil I have to remind myself to SLOW DOWN. It takes longer for me to develop all of the formal elements of a painting. Perhaps I'm a little out of practice (and that is something I'll correct!)

Can't wait to get back at the oils again soon!
Thanks for reading!! -kmw

The photo doesn't do the day justice -
but when I paint it I can show you then ;)

I think the clouds above look a little bit like a heart.
Do you see it?

This photo was taken in the river.
It was cool but refreshing water.
Wouldn't recommend bringing your easel in.
