The Rock by Kay Wyne

The Rock
40" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This beach scene is familiar to those who frequent Sequanota Club, located in Northern Michigan.  This massive rock has been on the beach and the anchor to many family photos throughout the years.  I wanted the rock to be the focal point of the painting, so I used impasto and a palette knife to achieve some interesting texture and shapes.  I had fun with the water, sand and grass using a wide bright and filbert.  This painting is drying in the studio...thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

On My Easel...

Beach scene
Here's the start of my beach painting.
The 40" x 40" canvas was toned with some magenta, transparent orange and cad yellow.  I wanted a thin wash to cover up the white canvas.  I started drawing the horizon line, the shoreline and some shapes for the rocks.  And the rock...
Starting to put in the sky and water.  I wanted to get the water color right...lots of violets and carribean, and cobalt.  I also started mixing some muddy greens, greys and browns for the sand.  I am not concerned about the big rock right now, as I plan on using a palette knife to paint it, one of the last things to paint on this canvas.  
I have started moving the paint around, but also wanting some of the initial undertones to peak through.  Having the oranges, magentas and pinks show through will make this painting more exciting and vibrant. More painting in the studio today... Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

I Can See Forever by Kay Wyne

I Can See Forever
30" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting
"I Can See Forever" is dry, varnished and hanging at the studio.  Using a big filbert brush to paint with, you can see the thick paint and brush marks on the canvas.  I purposely left some of the tinted canvas peaking through in the sky and clouds.  The magentas, reds, ochres in the foreground fade as they go back into the horizon.  I want the viewer to look at this painting and have a good feeling when looking at the open landscape with the big puffy clouds passing by.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

Hip, Hip, Hooray! by Kay Wyne

Hip, Hip, Hooray!
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Abstract
I finished this painting yesterday in the studio.  I mixed and mixed my colors in stages over several days as I have about 6 layers of paint on this vertical canvas.  I wanted the colors and shapes to change in size, shape and value as the eye wanders over the canvas.  The colors are very pleasant to the eye, as they are harmonious, even though I was mixing and mixing...and not matching piles of color.  

I give a big shout out to Interior Designer Lee Small, as she saw a photo of this painting and her response was, "Hip, Hip, Hooray!".  That grabbed me.  I asked her if I could use that for the title.  Of course she smiled, and said "yes", and she also told me it reminded her of the crowd at a TCU football game.  

What do you see when you look at this painting?  I would be interested, because I saw a wildflower field when I was painting it.  My imagination took over and I focused on the act of painting and the color relationship through this painting journey.  I enjoyed it all the way!  Thanks for looking at this blog!  Contact Kay for more info.  Kay

Crowd Pleaser by Kay Wyne

Crowd Pleaser
48" x 60" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
"Crowd Pleaser" is signed, and drying at the studio...Starting this painting with transparent washes, I had a couple of ideas in mind for this rather large canvas.  I have been wanting to paint a large floral landscape, then I thought it was about time to paint some roosters.  In the end, a very abstract floral landscape appears...but one very different from what I was working on in the beginning.  

My husband, John said that it looks like a crowd of people, and along with the pleasant colors I used, he suggested the title.  I am alway open to suggestions when it comes to naming my canvases...and I thought he nailed it.  "Crowd Pleaser" works for me!   Layers of mixed colors applied with brushes, allow the canvas to have paint built up in some areas.  This painting is available for purchase...contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog!  Kay
