Cloud Dreams, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Cloud Dreams
8x10 oil on canvas

Watching clouds on a lazy summer day brings a sense of peace and comfort for me.  Do you take time to watch the clouds floating by? I remember as a child laying on the grass and finding animals and people in the clouds. 
I created this using a palette knife and layers of oil paint. 
These are filled with color and texture.

Yellow Spring Day, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones



Yellow Spring Day
8x10 oil on canvas

This joyful scene is in one my favorite painting locations in Benbrook, Texas. The yellow flowers dominated the landscape in this scene. I wanted to highlight those, but couldn't resist pointing the road to the fabulous clouds.  See the progression shots I took while I painted it. This was created with a palette knife with the canvas toned in dioxide purple.

Red Bud Blooming, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Red Buds Blooming
10x8 oil on canvas

I continue my study of color in these small landscape paintings. Since it is time for the red bud trees to bloom I wanted to explore the color in the blooms. They look purple in the landscape, but when you get closer they take on a hot pick color. Or a mix of the two. I will keep practicing to produce that perfect combo.
I did post a video of the start of this painting. I continued to work on it and scraped most of the paint off and like this new look.

Azalea's Design, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Azalea's Design
12x9 oil on canvas

This was inspired from a photo I took at the Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens. We were there for a wedding and had the opportunity to wander through the garden. The sun was setting casting a glow to the blooming bushes. It was a fun challenge to make sense of the flower bush.

Pink Blossoms, New Contemporary Painting by Sheri Jones

Pink Blossoms
18x14 oil on canvas

This saucer magnolia blooms are one of the first of the trees to show their color.  When I was close to the park I drove by often to check the blooming status on these trees. I would go back with my painting gear and paint them during my lunch hour.  I was happy to paint this one  in the studio and loved the opportunity to take my time and build this up with layers and texture.
