Everglades Underpainting

Everglades underpainting, 6x6inch

I've decided to attempt a slower approach on my next Everglades painting. I'll start with an underpainting and then slowly build up the colors through multi layers of glazing, hopefully ending with a dramatic result

Everglades Vista

5x7 inch, oil on panel

Although this was painted from a photo from our trip to the Everglades last November, it seems as though it could be from any marsh here in New England. I'll try adding a palm tree in the next one....

I just finished 4 of these small paintings for a collector that's getting together for a girls' weekend with 3 of her close friends. Being housebound yesterday with the kids, due to 18" of snow, it helped the soul working on a tropical painting. I've got to find my photos from our last everglades trip and try a few more.
Here's one of my favorite everglades painters, Jo-Ann Sanborn

Winter Dreaming

Yesterday I received a request to make a similair painting to my Winter Dreaming, but smaller. Last week I received a request for a copy of the same painting, but with 4 friends sitting on the beach looking out at sea..........along with 3 additional copies, one for each friend of the buyer. I guess it must mean that winter has set in since the palm on the beach is so popular!
