Summer Workshop

Where did summer go?  Colored leaves are raining outside my window inviting another attempt at a landscape painting!

The three pieces above were painted during the summer paint along on-line classes referenced in the August post.  These were fun challenges and three more  "starts"  from the series are stacked behind the easel that may or may not ever be finished.   While landscape painting will never be my favorite genre, I am now more comfortable diving into nature's wonderful  presentations and have a much better feel for selecting paintable scenes,  handling light and shadow and being ever aware of shapes, clones, and those dreaded "potato rocks"!


  1. Wow. You were busy this summer. I love your paintngs. You have really captured the mountain scenes. Way to go. Silvia

    1. Thanks Sil! So glad you visited my studio and saw this work and others! My photos seldom do the paintings justice! Really appreciate your comments!

  2. Oh I think your landscapes are truly beautiful, Rosemary. I'd be so proud to have painted any one of them. Love it when you post.

  3. Thank you Sherry! I am lax when it comes to posting - maybe Facebook has something to do with that? Will try and do better! Now I have my coffee and am off to visit you!

  4. These landscapes are absolutely beautiful, Rosemary! I wish I can see them closeup...excellent job!!!
