Sky Delight, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Sky Delight
11x14 oil on wood panel

The morning sunrise brings me joy. I am so grateful to witness one like this.  I've switched things up and painted this on a wood panel. It' s so different for me, so it made the process fun. I built the texture and color using a palette knife.

Dancing Cypress Trees, New Contemporary Landscape Art, by Sheri Jones

This was created as a color study for a larger piece.  I like to start small and work out color and design before tackling a big canvas.  The location for the inspiration is a farm house in Italy.

Lake's Last Light, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Lake's Last Light
24x36 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This was inspired from small study I did recently. I like to work out the color and design before I go large.  The landscape is from Lake Granbury.  It is always a pleasure to go out on the lake in the boat and watch the setting sun.  We don't have to go far to find stunning views like this one.

French Country Side at Sunset, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

French Country Side at Sunset
16x20 oil on canvas

I loved painting this and adding my own color scheme to the landscape.  My challenge is to take a simple landscape photo and enhance it. Adding the glowing colors of a beautiful sunset made this landscape pop.

Streak of Light, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Streak of Light
16x20 oil on panel

This dramatic sky light was calling me to paint it.  I loved the strong contrasting colors. I painted this on a cradled wooden panel.  It was fun working on a different service.  The palette knife is very forgiving on this hard service.
