Kitty Cat, class demo, pets


"Kitty Cat"
(original class demo)

This was a fun example for my kid's class.  Students did a realistic drawing of an animal up close (free hand): bunnies, cats, puppies, birds, lion cub, fox, etc... Then we transferred it to watercolor paper drawing very lightly with pencil.   We used pen and ink to exaggerate the details before adding fun and/or strange colors with watercolors!  They turned out great!

I have a show coming up Saturday the 28th of January in Sebring, Florida. I'll be indoors at the agricultural center on Hwy 27, south of town.  It is sponsored by the Lake Placid Art league.  Hope you will come see me!  I'll have some reduced prices and they give away door prizes from the artists every thirty minutes!

On a personal level; I'm excited to partner with Lynne Barletta, and her Visionary School of Arts in their out reach:  Catch the Wave of Hope!

Fond Memories, horses, mountain landscape


"Fond Memories"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Just updated this image for prints and gifts!

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too.   I added less mud and more water to clean it up.

Jesus Christmas, snow, Christmas tree, watercolor

"Jesus Christmas"
© Fawn McNeill 2016


Merry Christmas!

Just a little mixed media watercolor I did for fun.  Drew it in pencil, then painted the colors, added some salt for the cool effects in the sky. I used extra fine sharpies for the words, after the painting dried of course!

Enjoy!

King of the Hill, winter sunrise


"King of the Hill"
© Fawn McNeill 2008



This little original painting was a study on complementary colors. I  used Ultramarine Blue, and Cadmium Orange (the complement or contrast to blue), and White. The white and orange make a nice peach glow, and the light blues set it off. The dark blackish colors were made by mixing orange and blue with no white. (For gray hues, add white). Amazing to see the variety of colors created with this limited palette.  

Thought maybe I should add angels, or splatter for falling snow.  What do you think?

Enjoy!

Little Jim's Shore, plein air, Florida landscape


"Little Jim's Shore"
© Fawn McNeill 2009

Challenging little Plein Air Painting (done on location) from Fort Pierce.  Little Jim's Bait Shop is located just to the right of this scene. 

The wind kept blowing things over, and the lighting changed drastically several times with the clouds blowing through. Have to paint fast and stick with the plan, because you cannot keep changing the painting to keep up with the changing elements.  
I like the way I captured the wind and choppy water.  

The sea grapes were finished back in the studio, and the pelicans were added later as well.  There were more pelicans fishing that day than what I added to the painting.
Enjoy!

Rocky Edge, shore line,watercolor


"Rocky Edge"
© Fawn McNeill 2012

Originally, I was attracted to the contrast of the cold rocks against the warm glow in the little bushes, and the hard rocks against the soft water.  But mostly I love it when life grows in the middle of hard places.  Somehow they overcome the lack of soil, and they grow anyway.  Kind of like people who turn out to be dynamic and inspirational when they had very little to help them get there.

 This is an original watercolor painting, done with many layers of professional color on acid free paper. 

Enjoy!

No More Tears, mountain path, angels, lake, fawn


"No more Tears"
© Fawn McNeill 2005

Just made this painting available in print! 
This is the last of my "drippy" series.  I did ten or so of these a few years ago. I like the contrast of the somewhat abstract background with realism added over the top.

It is symbolic on so many levels. 

The most obvious comes from a Bible verse (Rev 21:4) that says He (Jesus) will wipe the tears from our eyes in heaven.

The fawn is my name sake, so it represents me on a path to better things.  

The path is about choices and free will.  I have made my share of regretful journeys.

The drips and runs are all about tears and sorrow bringing about growth.  I poured my heart and my sorrows into this series for many months.  Then I got it all out and moved on!

The mountains represent the good things in life, and heading for higher places spiritually.  Better choices.

The angels in the mountains represent the spiritual battle.  One of the angels is praying, and one has a shield and sword.  They fight for us!

Using acrylics this thin jeopardizes the integrity and quality of the paint, so the finished painting must be sealed with at least 2 coats of acrylic sealer.  I prefer a semi-gloss, which I make by mixing two thirds gloss medium and varnish (Liquitex) with one third matte medium.  

 (I started a palette knife series with bold strong colors and thick textures after this painting.)

Media: Acrylic on canvas
Size:18 x 24 inches
