Anyway The Wind Blows

Anyway The Wind Blows
36" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape
My color palette with just about every color in the book....lots of violets, reds, greens, ochres, turquoise, raspberry ....it is all in there.  I can imagine standing in a large open field with the wind blowing, and seeing so many colors, with them fading off into the horizon.  Every blade of tall grass is a different  in color, giving this painting a fresh contemporary feel.  I would hope that the viewer would look at this painting and be able to feel the wind whipping around.  This painting is ready to hang...with or without a frame.   Contact Kay for more info on this painting.  Kay

Enchanting

Enchanting
36" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral Landscape
Enchanting is one of those paintings that went through many stages.  I used a large, heavy duty gallery wrap canvas, therefore the sides of the canvas (about 2 1/2") are also painted.  In my mind, I separated the painting in three parts:  sky/background, mid-ground, and foreground.  All three areas of the canvas had to be different sizes...I didn't want three equal parts.  I wanted the horizon to melt into the sky and recede.  The mid-ground needed to have someone color, but not as much as the foreground.  I used the palette knife and impasto on the florals to create texture and interest.  Enchanting is ready to hang, with framing as an option.  This painting is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX.  Thanks for looking at this blog...Kay

Best of the Bunch by Kay Wyne


Best of the Bunch
Contemporary Floral Still Life Painting
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
18 1/2" x 18 1/2" Total Frame Size
I finished this painting at the studio, and popped it in this beautiful frame.  It is a seamless (no mitered corners) and is slightly distressed with a satin finish.  There are so many shades of corals, pinks, greys and greens in this painting.  I used a flat brush to apply the oils.  Contact Kay Wyne for purchasing information.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay

Color of Summer

Color of Summer
10" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
Pushing, pulling, scraping and laying in the oils with my palette knife gives this painting an impressionistic feeling.  I started with an underpainting using a brush.  After looking at it for a couple of months on my easel, I decided I needed to take a different approach and repainted it with the knife.  I am much more satisfied with the outcome, especially with the color relationships.  The burnt orange contrasting against the violet and greens makes it pop. The colors of the landscape remind me of how a hot and dry summer day feels....therefore, the name, "Color of Summer".  I can't wait to put a frame on this panel once I varnish it.  This painting will be for sale once it dries.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks, Kay

Lost

Lost
12" x 16" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Floral Landscape
I named this painting "Lost" because I was totally lost in it with my palette knife.  Lost in a good way, just letting my mixing skills kick in, and allowing  the painting to happen.  The colors are harmonious because I mixed my piles of luscious oils as I worked through the canvas.  My palette was covered with greens, lavenders, greys and corals.  This landscape painting couldn't get much more abstract, as I was focused on the colors and how they looked in relationship to each other.  There is plenty of texture and paint built up on the canvas, creating more interest for the viewer.  This painting is drying at the studio.  Contact ME with any comments or questions.  Thanks for looking....Kay
