Thread: Vin's Landscapes

My second experiment in using a palette knife:
Two mostly-plein-air landscapes from the past month. I've been driving around the surrounding farmland trying to get some work done while the weather lasts.
I've also started writing down what happens when I go out plein-airing. Because there's always *something*. If I'm not lost then I'm covered in bugs and if I'm not covered in bugs then I've sat down on a thistle. Here are the links to my dA page where you can read them, if you are interested in that sort of thing and haven't already seen them there.

I'm learning how to paint in oils! This is my 3rd or 4th painting, the first one that didn't completely suck. It was done from one of the reference photos I took at the Badlands workshop.
I passed this farm every Sunday on my long-distance bike ride and finally got a chance to come back with the car and paint it.
This is something I started in May of last year and finally finished. I may go back in and do a more detailed job on the brick. I don't know. Perspective is my enemy!

Trying something slightly new with the acrylics. Two mostly plein-air paintings from October:
The ravine near my house:
Fall colours at the University farm:
And here's my second landscape in oils! This is a remake of one of the first posts in this thread, but the attachments don't seem to be showing up. I'll have to fix that sometime.

Great stuff! I especially like your pen-and-ink drawings from Banff. This thread makes me want to draw some landscapes.

Thanks Aqualeot and Notophthalmus! I'd like to play with the palette knife a bit more, it's difficult to work with but a lot of fun. And there's always more pen & ink work coming up. Check out my pen & ink thread if you haven't already.

Acrylic paintings from the past few months.
A creek near my house, from back in the fall. Mostly painted on location:
Playing with the palette knives a bit more:
Winter. This was from some photos I took last year. I was going to paint outside more this winter but I don't have a good setup for oils yet and it was relatively warm so that everything looks brown and disgusting. If I'm going to paint brown things I might as well wait for warmer weather.
