This blooming bush is one of the first burst of color in the spring time.  I spied these at the Botanical Gardens in Ft.  Worth. I painted on location and gathered reference photos for studio paintings.  I create my paintings in layers and the final is with the palette knife. I love to create drama with texture and color.

Sunrise in Style, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Sunrise in Style
24x36 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

It changed in a drastic shades of orange, pink and blue.  I was amazed at the array of colors in this beautiful morning sky.  It was both a challenge and joy to create on canvas.  I started with a warm base and used the paint brush  to lay in the big shapes.  I quickly grabbed the palette knife and started building texture and warm colors.

Here Comes the Sun, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Here Comes the Sun
16x20 oil on raymar canvas panel
Sold
I am excited to say this painting was accepted in the  “The Sound of Color”
2018 Spring Juried Show at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.

The focus on the entries were on a single song or specific lyrics from a song. The Beatles song "Here Comes the Sun" was a perfect match to the upbeat colors of this gorgeous sunrise.

Here Comes the Sun
