Pushing myself in a new direction ..... painting smaller images than usual. Thought I would share some of the process/steps along the way. Ready to hang Acrylic painting on 20" x 20" Gallery Wrapped Canvas....$200.00.
Haven't touched this painting in a few days ..... time to reflect and decide if it's done. Been a great journey exploring a few different techniques with sponges and colour. Happy with the results!
Preparing for fall exhibition at Pynelogs Art Gallery and Cultural Centre in Invermere, British Columbia this is a work in progress on a Autumn landscape painting. The first 2 paintings are a quick study on a 9" x 11" canvas. Expressing my love of Autumn and it's rich colours I am now working on a 2' x 3' Gallery Wrapped Canvas. Loosely sketching out my drawing the first layers of colours are mostly complimentary colours. For the background I used organic sponges to layer in the colours. To create the leaves in the foreground i tried several different brushes as well as a palette knife. Dabbing the paint on with a No. 2 Robert Simmons brush gave the results i was looking for! ....... more update to come!
Work by LaVerna Peters, Ann Holtby Jones and Colleen Routley

Two weeks in the sun just would not be complete without some quick watercolour sketches to add to my art diary. Perhaps a painting combining these images with memories and photos taken while in Maui.
