new abstract landscapes

After weeks of painting watercolour landscapes, I woke up on Monday and my abstract muse was back. Yippee!

I started by priming a number of canvas boards. I'm working on these because I love working on a hard surface that I can push and scrub on without worrying about damage. And because they're easy and safe to post anywhere in the world.


Priming canvas boards


I'm still working on abstracts that reflect the dry Central Otago landscape. There's so much beauty in the warm reds, oranges, golds and yellows that contrast so wonderfully with the blue's of the lakes and mountains and the big, big skies.


Getting my fingers dirty.


First one done -

"It Never Ends"

Mixed media painting on canvas board
Board size is 16 x 12in, 305 x 406mm
Unframed
Initialled on the front. Signed and dated on the back.


"It Never Ends". Mixed media abstract painting.



And onto the next one. This one done on a much cloudier day. It felt like it was going to rain, but it hasn't yet.


Adding a touch of snow to the hills.


And completed -

"They say it's going to rain"

Mixed media painting on canvas board
