Hey guys, I am finally getting around to uploading some brand new paintings. These were completed within the last month or so. They're freshly dried and varnished. Both are impressionist hay bale paintings, which were scenes from my backyard area. For some reason, I really like the hay bale. I suppose its consistency is attractive and gives me plenty of opportunity to play with colors and composition.
The painting is completed in an impressionist style and I went a little wild with the yellows and oranges near the end. Overall, I thought it turned out pretty well and definitely formed an impression of the visual image I was observing, at the present time. This one is 18 by 24 inches.
This one was the identical scene, but I took a different approach to it. If I remember correctly, this one was actually painted first. It is a tiny bit smaller. Unfortunately, the camera didn't cooperate with me and I was unable to get all of the finer details and brushstrokes of the piece. This one is 16 by 20 inches.
