"Rushes-Vermillion Lakes", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Rushes-Vermillion Lakes", 8x10" plein air oil painting
SOLD

This is another from last fall done in beautiful Banff, Alberta. I was mesmerized by the vertical patterns of the bullrushes against all the horizontal patterns of the background and reflections in the water. I really like this piece, and hope to return to Banff to paint in this wonderful spot again this year.

Enjoy!

This one was done in the fall, but never posted. I had a very enjoyable day painting at Vermillion Lakes just outside Banff with a friend. There are a few more done that day to follow.

"Sunset Over Superior", oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


Share |
"Sunset Over Superior", 6x8" oil painting on canvas board
SOLD

In this little painting, which is a study for a larger work, I was aiming at getting pure transparent colour to vibrate against more opaque passages, in an effort to try to capture the vibrance of an spectacular evening sunset. I am pretty happy with the result, now I have to get to work on the larger painting!!!

Enjoy!

"The Colours Of Winter", watercolour by Sharon Lynn Williams

"The Colours Of Winter", watercolour 18x18" image
SOLD

I did this watercolour for a demo a couple of months ago, and realized I never posted it. I hadn't painted in watercolour for a long while, and all the time I was doing the demo, I kept asking myself "This is SO cool -look at the way the colours run and puddle -why did I stop doing this???"
Sometimes I just feel the need to work in another medium, and I remain adamant that the way I have grown as an artist has been to try everything -one medium always informs the others. For instance, to learn about design, take time to do abstracts; to learn about pattern, take time to do some collages, etc
Enjoy!
