Morning at the Marsh


Morning at the Marsh I & II | 48″ x 48″ each | Oil on Canvas


These paintings are from a Marsh Series,  new paintings are exhibiting at The Fairfax Gallery, Jacksonville and Grace Gallery, Winter Park.

Living near the inter-coastal means I have a short walk to sketch and paint the marsh anytime I want. Its a constant source of inspiration and changes so dramatically from season to season. There is even a drastic change morning and evening!

Fields of Green

This time of year the marshlands are just awash with color. I captured some great moments in some small studies, and it’s about having the confidence to make the same color harmonies and vibrations happen in large work. This painting was inspired by the small study “Mini Acid Marsh” | 5″ x 7″, I was drawn to the strong pallet and mark making it prompted me to work on “Fields of Green” 36″ x 48″ canvas.  As for the big marks, pull out the extra-large pallet knife.

Mix it up!

Getting back into Figure Drawing after a bit of a break…. so back and mixing it up!

Using some old panels I painted in Oil and Oil Pastel….zoom in — zoom out…..some new perspectives! Switch it up and mix it up, never a predictable outcome, but keeps ya thinking!

Have you a favorite… let me know!

Top Tip – I use Sennelier Oil Pastels Standard – Portrait Colors and Landscape Colors

“Sennelier Oil Pastels are made from the highest quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium, and neutral pH mineral wax. The non-siccative nature of the binding medium ensures it will not oxidize and has no effect on film stability, while the mineral wax gives the pastels their creamy, buttery texture not unlike that of lipstick. The high pigment load in Sennelier Oil Pastels provides them with an opacity and covering power.”  –  ASW
