Larger landscapes (process)

I’ve been planning to do larger, acrylic on wood versions of some of the smaller landscapes I did earlier last year. The idea is to use the small painting as the source rather than the original photograph. Below are the first three sittings. I like where it’s headed.

1: sky and reflection underpainting
2: tree and tree reflection
3: bringing more color into sky and reflection

Indonesia. 7cm x 7cm, gouache on paper.

This subject comes by way of my old friend Vineetha. When we met up last summer I asked her what the best place she ever traveled to was. Answer: Indonesia. After looking it up I was inspired to make a painting—I hope to go there some day.

Wildcat Canyon

Wildcat Canyon Regional Park, California. 7cm x 7cm, gouache on paper

The source photo for this was taken by my friend Clint Marsh. I met Clint at my friend Greg’s 40th birthday party after hearing about him for years. Clint is a published author and creator of Fiddler’s Green, a truly magical publication. Over the course of three days I fell in love with Clint’s peaceful disposition, humor, wit, and sincerity. I’m glad we’ve stayed in touch.

Cala Ratjada, Islas Baleares

Cala Ratjada, Islas Baleares, Spain. 7cm x 7cm, gouache on paper.

This is the first tiny landscape in a series of 30 paintings based upon photos from friends. Today’s source photo was provided by a different Ben Husmann. This Ben and I connected a few years back on instagram thanks to our sharing a name. I’ve enjoyed following his photos over the years.
