Sunday's Bouquet

Sunday's Bouquet
12" x 12" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral Still Life
Yesterday we had a paint along in the studio.  I had a small bouquet of flowers from Grand baby Oliver's baptism on Sunday, thanks to the Oliver family. (O.K. I have to brag:  Cute Little Oliver is a doll...so cute, so smart and quick on his feet!) I put the flowers in a small vase and we painted for about 30 minutes, and here's the results.  I had leftover paint on my palette from earlier, and I squeezed out some fresh cad yellow--giving me just enough paint to cover this 12" x 12" canvas.  Here is a snap shot of the arrangement:
I am back in the studio today...If this floral arrangement is still fresh and colorful, I may paint it again!  Painting fresh flowers is one of my favorite subject matters.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Contact Kay Wyne for more info on this painting or any other paintings in my portfolio.  KMW

Abstract by Kay Wyne

Abstract Floral 
36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
This painting is drying on my easel....I started with some dark greys that I mixed up from my last painting.  I took a wide flat brush and covered the canvas.  After letting it dry for three days, I went in with lavenders and greens and a palette knife.  I moved the paint around, mixed the oils so that there were interesting shades of color, and let the knife do the work.  After laying in the darks and some mid-tones, I gave it some punch with some turquoise and orange/red.  I thought it needed jazzing up.  I haven't put a title on this one...let me know if you have any suggestions.  Thanks, Kay Wyne

Beyond Seabrook by Kay Wyne

Beyond Seabrook

I used my plein air paintings as a guide on the color palette for this small panel.  I wish I had painted this one on a large canvas---36" x 36" or larger.  This painting is getting framed up at Dutch Art Gallery.  Thanks for looking at my blog....Kay Wyne

Abstract - Untitled - by Kay Wyne

48" x 60" 

60" x 48"

I painted this abstract on a 48" x 60" Gallery Wrap Canvas.  It can hang vertically or horizontally.  I painted it horizontally until the last day, and at the point I turned it on it's side to reach some canvas that needed some detail and brushstrokes headed in another direction.  Turning the canvas on all four sides gives the viewer some options on hanging...

This painting started out as a landscape with a horizon line and colorful land bars.  Once my wide lines and shape started to take place, it began to look and feel like a stream of water with fish swimming upstream.  I concentrated on my color palette from the get-go, wanting pleasant and beautiful colors.  I mixed everything...nothing is straight out of a tube.  This painting is drying at the studio.  It isn't titled right now....although "Upstream" might be a good choice.  The sides of the canvas are painted with a dark vulcan grey, and framing is not necessary.  Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this contemporary abstract painting.  Kay
