"Bow River Spring", new plein air painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Bow River Spring", 9 x 12" plein air oil on board
SOLD

This is the second painting along the Bow River from Carburn Park. It was an interesting challenge to make all the wonderful neutrals of the banks have some life, compared to the beautiful blue sky reflection in the water.

I am off to paint in Tuscany, Italy for 2 weeks beginning tomorrow -luck me I know!!! I am not sure if I will be able to blog while I am away, but if I can't, I will have a lot to share with you when I return.


Enjoy!

"Spring Pond Reflections", new plein air painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Spring Pond Reflections", 8 x 10" plein air oil on multimedia artboard mounted on masonite
Painting available on auction here, beginning bid $100

I was lucky enough to catch the first blush of new leaves at nearby Carburn Park. I used a new surface called Multimedia Artboard to do this painting on. This piece was ungessoed and was extremely absorbent, which gave an almost pastel like quality to the mark making which I found to be quite interesting. It is basically some kind of paper with resin mixed in so it becomes an archival, inert surface to work on. The best part is it is extremely light, about the weight of a piece of cardstock. I have prepared some sheets with gesso for my upcoming painting trip to Tuscany -hopefully it will be the perfect support to travel with! I will mount all successful work onto masonite when I get home.


Enjoy!
