On the Sunny Side

After visiting the gorgeous fields of sunflowers I was inspired to paint them in a larger format.  I worked on an older painting that was in the portrait style. It was of large sunflowers and painted in my garden.  Painted with a palette knife in many layers.

Early Birds
11x14 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

These fisherman were out early and taking advantage of the opportunity to catch the big one.  In the old adage "Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in the morning sailor's warning". 
 Jesus said, When in evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: For the sky is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather today; for the sky is red and lowering. (Matthew XVI:2-3)

Running Free
24x18 oil on linen canvas

I was inspired to paint this after visiting the Acton Nature Trail with my sisters, and great nieces. Sara and Sadie are both 7 and felt free to run ahead of us. It was on a beautiful winter morning and they were happy to be outside and running free.
I use a limited palette of three colors and white.
Thalo Red Rose, Cadmium Yellow Light and Phthalo Blue.
I really enjoyed find grays in this vibrant mix of strong pigments.

Contemporary Impressionistic Landscape Sunflowers Palette Knife Original oil painting by Sheri Jones


Chasing Sunflowers
11x14 oil on wood panel

Chasing Sunflowers was a plein air piece I started in a beautiful field of sunflowers.
We set up quickly and got to work. As soon as we started the owner showed up and asked us to leave.  He did say we could finish, so we worked quickly.  When I got home it looked like a hot mess. So I scraped the painting and started over! The landscape around this field was so beautiful. I was determined to make this one work.

First Light's Glow
12x12 oil on canvas

I painted this using a new color palette, introducing a viridian.  It is on the cool side of green. It leans toward the blue so it was useful for mixing greens on the cooler side. I love the effect it gave with this morning sunrise. This is a local landscape with Comanche Peak in the background.
