Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

Knowing what I'm trying to accomplish in a painting is primary for guiding every other decision I'll have to make in creating a composition.  If I'm simply beguiled by an attractive "thing" (tree, barn, creek, whatever…), I'll wind up taking dictation from that thing without thinking through how I can compose it so that it will emphasize what I find beautiful about the scene.  That, for me, is the fun and satisfaction in painting.  

Almost without exception, composing requires stopping to think about what I want to say and what I have to work with.  It's rare that I find something that's ready to paint just as it is.  For instance, I may try several ideas for cropping the scene and identifying the focal center.  I may then want to remove unrelated clutter, rearrange what's there for better size and balance relationships, or any number of other things that I feel will give my primary concept emphasis.  I find that my best paintings are about one thing, and one thing only.  That concept must be the star of the show. Everything else plays a supporting role, and a lot of what's there won't even make the cut, when I've answered the question, "What's it about?"

This last week I just wanted to play around with back ground textures and colors against my composition.  To be able to achieve a nice juicy look to the back grounds meanwhile tying them into the painting themselves.  It may look easy but you have to think out each stroke and color before applying to the canvas.

New "Field of Sunshine III" Palette Knife Sunflower and Poppy Field Painting by Niki Gulley

“Field of Sunshine III" ©2017 Niki Gulley
30" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Festive blossoms dance in the gentle breeze, filling this field with sweet fragrance.  Voluminous clouds drift by overhead as sun's late light casts its golden glow. This textured oil painting captures a carefree summer day with poppies, sunflowers and wildflowers overflowing the foreground, filling up the landscape with color, texture and joy.

For more information on textured sunflower and poppy paintings, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

Tulip Magnolia, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Tulip Magnolia
10 x 8 oil on canvas panel

I cruised thru the Botanical Gardens one day during by lunch hour and discovered the Tulip Magnolia tree in bloom. I packed my gear and went out the next day and painted this. I loved being on location with this early bloomer. Spring is coming very early this year and I plan to take advantage of it. 
This is available for purchase. Email me for more info.
Thank you for viewing art.

Recently I painted a small 5 x 7 painting of just the brass vessel and flowers but for some reason I wanted to do a larger version of that painting.  Little more complex.
