One Year/100 Paintings - #31 - unfinished Plein Air painting of what I believe to be an old one room schoolhouse near the intersection of Fairview Drive and Route 94 in Hanover, PA. Painted with Golden Open Acrylics on 7 x 5 canvas board.
#16 - One Year/100 Paintings - Red Beets, still life - Acrylic on 6 x 4 canvas board. Seeking new ideas for paintings, I picked up fresh vegetables that looked interesting with the intention of finding a new recipe to use them after painting them. We made oven roasted red beets as a side dish for one of our meals, they still tasted pretty much like any other time I've had red beets.
This was painted in the early am, before work, in just over an hour. The short time limit is to force myself to work quickly, and simplify the strokes as much as possible while still being able to recognize the subject matter. Perhaps I should push the limits further and paint in a totally abstract or impressionistic fashion, without worrying about capturing a likeness to the subject.
#14 - One Year/100 Paintings - Camera Still Life - 4 x 4 acrylic on canvas board. Another camera still life that is similar in style to the previous one. This is a 620 roll film camera from my collection of over 150 cameras.
#13 - One Year/100 Paintings - Virtual Plein Air - Random Mapcrunch View - 4 x 6 acrylic on canvas board. I feel like a painting style may be emerging with these last few paintings aside from the camera still life. Trying to simplify the scenes and add simple strokes and spots of color. My paint colors still look very saturated, I will try to mute them down a bit more in future paintings.
