break in the weather


Went out late in the day,hoping for a break in the weather.
Found this spot but didn't even manage to set up,could see these bad clouds coming...
gave it a go at home with acrylics this time...8x10" on canvas

Hello Rob. I like the way you've caught the late afternoon light in this one, and I really like all the touches of colour in the shadows.

hi keith,i has to be late afternoon dashes,the kids are home for Easter...not complaing though,the light is the best
ps
did you have a look at the link?

Keith Tilley said...

Yes thanks Rob. I already knew about Wet Canvas, but I've been spending more time getting to know people at Art Forums UK. I'll have to start looking there again.

By the way, I've had a look in the garden and the daffodils should be out in a week or so, if we have a bit of sunshine.

considering that you did it at home, it still has a very fresh air feeling to it. Nice job Rob.

Hey Rob, Great light in this piece. The textures are also spot on! I think you are a bit farther into spring than we are here in Maine.

one daffodil doesn't make spring Cooper,the weather goes from winter to summer in a day,flying by like april showers.

The vibrancy of color is wonderful. And some of your previous posted paintings are also great. In particular the one of the lambs.

Wet into wet acrylic painted transparently with strokes of accents leads to a magical lighting. I like this very much.

rob ijbema said...

didn't paint it wet into wet Diane,
that is what i like about acrylics,you can apply the next passage so quickly,also why i don't like to take them outside much,they dry a bit to quick,especially on the palette,despite misting...
anyway,yes i was pleased with the light,thanks!
