KabalaArch, I sense a bit of Louisa McElwain in Janice's work. Very nice.
She did large plein air works out of the back of her truck, often painting with her fingers, trowels, all sorts of stuff. Wish I had gotten the chance to meet her. Seemed like a cool artist.

yeah bc - "like a surgeon short on anesthesia, the plein air artist has to work fast!"

Once the family took a roadtrip out to Canyonlands N.P., in August. Janice's field kit includes a painter's sun parasol, which needed to be augmented with the shade of the outhouse. Did 4 small studies of Moses in an hour or so, each one of completely different chroma to keep up with the light.

Why we chose August for Canyonlands is beyond me. We could have just as easily picked, say Badwater, and saved the gasoline! Over on the White Rim side, the chillun's and I did out best to make ourselves as one with the sparse shade of a 4 foot juniper while Janice cooked up some more work. The only time we could ramble were the last 2 hrs before sunset, and during this window I was able to conduct the entire family down onto the floor of Monument Basin 3rd Class - including my 5 yr old son - and up to Standing Rock for a look see.

Then, from the Rim, we trundled a large watermelon Janice had stuffed in the Cherokee at the last - Revenge was sweet! (and kinda sticky) Made a very satisfying red explosion on impact.

It's always struck me that the key to canyonland paintings is to somehow capture the air itself, and your work is telling in that regard, really good depth of field.

That Louisa McElwain work is some pretty fine stuff. I troll the galleries of Santa Fe pretty regularly and never noticed it, either because it lurked in some backwater gallery or it was overwhelmed by the imitation drivel that passes for art.

Actual southwest-based artists have a hard time finding representation in Santa Fe, America's 3rd largest art market.

Thanks for another plein air quote, kabalaArch!
Getting the values correct is a great way to sell depth and a sense of space in a landscape. Your Canyonlands trip sounds like a good one. Is there a bad time to visit there?! Painting in the heat is better than in the cold, IMO.

neebee, thanks for the links. I've see Roos work before. Would love to paint with her someday.

Here are a few of my favorites from my recent trip to London. These are from the Tate Britain. What a great Museum! The entire wing devoted mostly to JMW Turner was fantastic.

hey there say, phylp... wow, love the portrait of the little girl... love to know that there are so many ways... it is okay to do them 'how one feels' at the moment...

dark shadows, etc.. or not...

pastel type feel... or deep carved feel...

very nice sweet stuff...

many times, i dislike some of mine, due to various parts not being how
clear, etc, that others may do ... i've seen many portraits that are like these pastels, and it encourages me, if mine are not so 'perfect in the eyes or etc, in some way...

they can be soft, light, heavy, shadowy, or however we feel :)
whewww... :) makes me less concerned that i am not progressing, :))


oops, forgot:

here is really neat link... like the feel of the various parts and how they relate...

I have this old print on good paper. Worn, creased slightly. I haven't any recollection of whose it was or how I came to have it,
but I think it belonged to my wife, who was part Yaqui.

I have given this a slight contrast since it's light in tone. It will likely show up better on the screen that way, I hope.

So much great art on this thread and the Salvador Dali Film made my day. I'm currently working on a Great Basin Streamscape in the studio.

Have a beary good day.
