Just to mix things up a bit I'm posting a recent oil on linen painting created this last August on the shores of Connecticut. The day I finished it, Hurricane Earl was roughly coming our way that night, but it ended with a sputter and nothing much. I had to rig an umbrella to my easel as it was starting to rain towards the end of the painting session.

The painting is currently for sale Susan Powell Fine Art - Gallery in Madison, CT.

You've really captured the atmosphere of an impending tropical storm. Glad it missed you and your umbrella!

Nicely done.

I LIKE it when you mix it up like this. That sunlight on the island's tip is really nice.

The lighting conveyed is such a good depiction of what it looks like just before a storm. One could almost walk into this & feel a few raindrops. Beautiful!

Helder Vieira said...

As in your gouaches, a very sophisticated color.
The sense of place is overwhelming.

Hey, Love the blog!

I know this isn't the place for it but I couldn't find a contact link. Is there any reason that you don't have a previous page button at the bottom of each page? I would like nothing better than to read every page of this thing but navigation is a serious pain in the ass when I have to scroll up and find the next month in the archive every time I'm done with a page. This is literally the ONLY blog I have ever seen that doesn't have the "Previous and Next" buttons at the bottom of a page.

Anyway great work and easily the best blog dealing with gouache that I've found so far. Keep up the good work.
