Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day 11

Back to an abstract landscape. Kept things simple and just painted. Used a neutral palette and painted over an under painting of transparent yellow oxide and indian yellow. I was going to paint over all the yellow  but instead kept some of it and added a few more layers of yellow and red iron oxide . Painting is not coming easy this month. I had cleared most of my calendar for January to get back painting. So....really it's no surprise there are lots of ups and downs happening. So my advice to myself is to keep painting, experimenting and enjoy having the time to paint. I am really looking forward to that 'eureka' moment!

Words for me to ponder....

'...paint what you enjoy and love - not what you think you should paint....'

  1. Lots of great things in this work-- marks, texture, pattern and color.

  2. LOVE that yellow! Terrific textures and patterns. Love the wonly layers, and the yellow peeking through :) Fingers crossed for your moment to arrive soon!

  3. This is so beautiful Janet! This yellow-orange-gold line is so perfect... illuminated the whole painting.
