Caribbean Palms, Palm trees, Plein air

"Caribbean Palms"

8 x 10 inches

Acrylic on hardboard
SOLD


No, I didn't go to the Caribbean Islands to paint this one (although that is not a bad idea). I went to Jensen Beach this morning and painted at a resort called Caribbean Shores. It was very windy and cool, and these palms were so beautiful I had to try my hand at them!

Great Egret's Grace, wildlife art by Fawn


"Great Egret's Grace"
20 x 24 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on canvas

Detail:

This is a painting that I did in 2004. I did a series of about ten paintings with drips and runs. I would throw the paint on in thin layers and then I put the thick paint over the top for detail. It makes a nice contrast -- not only in the surface texture but also in the transparent to opaque paint quality. I have recently softened the small waves in the foreground.

"High Tide"
11 x 14 inches
(Ready to frame)
Acrylic on canvas

This painting started as a demonstration for an art lesson, then later I added more detail and the seagulls. I love the foam and the way the waves lead your eye right to the gulls.

Kissimmee River, Florida Cabbage Palm, Daily Painting

Kissimmee River
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Not Available


This is a painting I did last February. It never did seem quite finished. I was going through some of the older paintings and realized the palm needed a larger top. I darkened some of the clouds and added warmer colors to the whole painting.

Winter Marsh, Egrets, Lake Port Florida, Daily Painting

"Winter Marsh"
9 x 12 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on Hardboard
$675.00
I am still working on some things I was reminded of at my workshop a week ago. I used a reversed "C" shape to plan out the composition and I tried to use some less intense colors away from the focal point. I like the effect: as if the sun is trying to come through on the right and the birds are about to fly out of the picture!

Taylor Creek, Plein Air Painting by Fawn

"Taylor Creek"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Ready to frame

Went out late this morning, and it was so hot for November! 85 degrees. But the wind was blowing and the sun light made everything easier to paint. I found a cypress tree to set up under and got two paintings done. Beautiful day.

I am working with some new colors. I also tried to make a plan and really slow down. So much more enjoyable. Things go much smoother if I don't change my mind half way through the painting!

Thanks for Looking!
