Rember this? Maritime Blues III WIP - Update 2

Think back... way back to the spring when I first posted two WIPS of poured paintings of mussel shells.  I completed one and let the other, well rest.  Somehow, once I get to about the first third of a painting  I seem to set it  aside  and then finish an earlier piece.  this time is no exception.  With Maritime Blues II recently back from the framer, I decided it was time to finish this piece.  What I love about this painting is I can pick it up at any time, work for a few hours and them come back to it.  I have a goal to complete at least two shells pre day until I can call it finished!

 

I am loving the colours and textures - feeling quite adventurous with all the mauves and bits of pink.    This photo is showing the work darker than it really is - I will shoot the next update in better light!

 

Maritime Blues II - Finally Finished!

So, what seems like many many months of planning and painting  - this painting is finally complete.  I started two poured mussel shell works at the same time.  The second, well is my next work in progress. I actually think I may have worked this subject out  of my  system... however, I think there may be one more either oil or acrylic -- for  old times sake :).

WIP - Maritime Blues 2

Well... with all the travelling I have done the past six-week, to Alexandria & DC and then to Vancouver :), I am certainly behind. I was hoping to have Maritime Blues 2 & 3 completed by now.  Fact is, after today, I have to focus on small paintings for  the upcoming Kings County Studio Tour 2012. I have a decent start just not where I would like to be.

So, since I pohotographed this a few hours ago, I have continued to work on it. Thinking I am about half way there.
