GREENS AND BLUES



A bit looser, a bit bigger brush.  Easy to not draw anything here - in fact, what would you draw?

I love it as it is. I can focus on the sky which has some beautiful swirls and washes of blue. You paint with such confidence Rhonda.

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Caroline :) You made me smile.

Claire said...

It is beautiful as it is, and is reminiscent of the summer; missing the warmth very much now xx

Barb Sailor said...

This is a wonderful sky - it works! This painting speaks for itself.

Vicki Greene said...

Looks finished to me. That sky is wonderful!

RH Carpenter said...

Claire, I am missing the warmth, too, although we did have sun today :) Thank you for your comment.

Thanks, Barb and Vicki :)

There is really good recession in the sky, I feel like I can float right through. I can't wait to see a blue sky like that, you are such a tease ;o)

What a gorgeous sky!!! Really spectacular, Rhonda!

Hi, Rhonda,
Take it easy. Please put your health first.
Kind regards, Sadami

Love the 'top of the mountain' feel of this. Great aerial
perspective and such a yummy sky! Love all the shades of green.

ah a girl after my own heart--you've nailed the 'beyond' beautifully-so rhythmic and enticing

Jeanette said...

Its good to test the boundaries without a guide of a drawing beneath. It provides a certain freedom to experiment and just let paint flow.

RH Carpenter said...

Lisa, Sherry, Pam and Jan: Thanks for the comments - glad you like it.

Hi, Sadami; I'm trying to be healthy but it's not easy! ha ha Bad habits are hard to break!

Thanks, Jeanette. Letting the paint do it's thing is the hardest thing for a control freak who just wants to do "one more thing" and then it's overdone! Loving your encaustics - you are always stretching the boundaries.

You are doing such a great job on the "not drawing" Rhonda:) Like you did it always this way. This sky is so beautiful and natural. So nice!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Renate. I used a photo of a highway and the clouds and trees but left out the highway so had a lot of leeway with what I wanted to put in and leave out. Mostly, it was about the sky.
