Chaste Trees in the Wild, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Chaste Trees in the Wild
12x16 oil on canvas

I was delighted to see the warm purples and pinks of the Chaste Trees in Benbrook last week.  I didn't have the time to paint on location so I snapped a few images while the color was strong. Sure enough, by the time I got back by the color had faded.  
This is available for purchase.

Botanical Gardens, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Botanical Gardens
12x16 oil on raymar canvas panel

I went plein air painting with my painting buddies Friday morning.  I took many reference photos and enjoyed painting this on Saturday morning.  The hydrangeas and phlox were glowing in the morning sun.  I love how some areas of the botanical gardens take on a natural scene.
This is available for purchase.

I could hear this beautiful peacock before I saw him. He was perched up high on a wall at the Alcazar in Seville, Spain. This is a royal palace and garden in the heart of the city.  This impressive palace has a Moorish influence and was a wonderful place to spend the day. This is available for purchase.

Sheri Jones, New Contemporary Landscape Painting, La Mancha's Windmills

La Mancha Windmills
10x8 oil on raymar canvas panel

I created this at La Mancha Windmills in Consuegra, Spain. Most Spanish windmills like those described in Cervantes Don Quixote can be found here. These date back to the 12th century. 
We travelled with Scott Williams and Niki Gulley of ArtTreks. They do the work of finding great locations to paint, stay and eat. It was an incredible trip and one I would recommend.  I was inspired in this charming Spanish town.
