Afternoon Delight - sold - by Kay Wyne

Afternoon Delight
Sold
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Floral Landscape
"Afternoon Delight" is one of my all-time favorite paintings.  I remember painting this in the studio, and the whole process was fun and exciting.  Using a palette knife all the way, I used it to mix my paints and to apply the paints on the panel.  Some days are fun and easy at the easel, and other days are challenging, frustrating and not so much fun....and I think that the end result usually tells the viewer some of that.  I am working on some new projects in the studio this week...Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay Wyne

Lake View by Kay Wyne

Lake View
18" x 24" Oil on Canvas
I painted this landscape about 25 years ago...it is framed and hanging in our home.  I like this painting for a few reasons---I know it isn't a great painting, but it holds memories of summers in Michigan for me, and I have put in hundred of hours of easel time since I painted "Lake View".  For me, it is also a visual record of my painting style, and how after all these years it has changed.  I think I will paint this same scene in the studio and then en plein air this summer.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay Wyne

Flower Power by Kay Wyne


Flower Power
36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral Painting
A visit to the Dallas Arboretum gave me all the inspiration I needed for this canvas.  I decided that I needed to tone my canvas with a diluted Permanent Rose, then I was ready to start drawing on the canvas.  I used raw umber, olive green and violet to place the flowers and lay-out my road map.

I started with my transparent oils and put a couple of layers on, getting my dioxazine violet,  magenta, olive green, and permanent rose.  The background fades and is somewhat out of focus to create some distance on the canvas.  I mixed up about six different piles of greens, starting with sap, olive, and adding cad yellow and ice blue to get a good range of shades.  I put in the jonquils last because they were opaque, and I did not want to mix my transparent and opaques.  I hope that the viewer has a sense of the beauty and powerful color that I witnessed at the Arboretum.

Thanks for looking at this blog...contact Kay Wyne for more information on this painting - it is available for purchase at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  Kay Wyne
