Sunflowers Hydrangeas and Grapes: A Still Life

Sunflowers, Hydrangeas and Grapes:  A Still Life
40" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
This still life is the latest art challenge going on in the studio.  I personally think it is interesting, busy and colorful...and it was fun to paint!  Obviously there is a lot going on, with 8 or 9 vases, 2 candlesticks, sunflowers, hydrangeas, grapes, an orange, leaves, 5 or 6 different fabrics, weeds, greenery, and just a lot of stuff.  The textures are wonderful...silver, ceramic, dried weeds, soft fabric, and I think there was a dead rat in there somewhere.  It was put together by Sharon, and everyone has been asked to paint it...or at least parts of it.                    
Here's my view of the set-up from my easel.  This painting is drying now.
Thanks for looking at my art posted here...Kay Wyne

Blue Day by Kay Wyne

Blue Day
6" x 6" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Plein Air Painting
It was a pre-Matthew day on the beach at Seabrook.
Things were changing, the ocean was grey-blue, the
sky was turquoise blue.  As I painted the ocean, it
looked dark and angry.  The clouds were pulling apart
and the weather was changing quickly.  I had to paint
fast and furious as high tide was pushing me back on
the beach.  Thanks for visiting my blog....Kay

The Beach

The Beach
Pre-Matthew Plein Air Painting
8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Here's another Seabrook Island painting that ended up being a palette knife.  I got to the beach and realized that I did not have any brushes or medium.  So by default, this seascape is a palette knife painting.  Here's what my set-up was like, with high tide approaching.
More paintings tomorrow...have a great day.  Kay
