"Spirit Island Revisioned", acrylic landscape painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Spirit Island Revisioned", acrylic painting, 14 x 15"

This is the last painting that I did at the Quiller workshop. My hope was that it would look like my work with just a touch of Steve's influence, and I think that I succeeded. It was great fun to paint, and went through several changes in focus since the original inception. My work with oils has made adding the opaque paint to the transparent areas easier to conceptualize. It is neat how working in one medium helps your work in a completely different medium.

I have been very busy with shows and preparations for more shows! I am in two shows this weekend and will have 40 works in a show in Edmonton that opens next Friday. I am also going to be a featured artist at Arts On Atlantic gallery here in Calgary for the month of December, with 20 of my new plein air oil paintings from this season. I will post more about those as the time gets shorter.

These watercolors are fabulous Sharon. I have the analytic tracking code but I don't know where to paste it? Help! Also would you like to add my link?

Sharon said...

Hi Linda: you should study all of Stephen Quillers books and do the paintings. After that you will be a master of acrylic as well.
I will post your link ASAP.

You really have mastered the loose style of painting landscapes in acrylics. This is a very beautiful painting, a simple composition yet it is powerful with the strong colours of the trees, the soft opaque sky and water and the warm tones of the rocks.

Thank you Caroline! I would highly recommend him as he is a SUPER teacher as well as a talented artist.
