Clear Summer Day

6"x6" Acrylic on board

My first painting for 2017 at last! It has been a long time since I painted with acrylics... I thought I would be a good idea to get used to them again because we are moving to Australia and will be living in a caravan traveling around. I will use water soluble oils as well but they still take a while to dry. I still prefer oils and will miss them! The upside is I love the Australian landscape and will be able to paint more plein air!! This is about 10 minutes from where I live...a favorite spot of mine with Eucalyptus trees along the waters edge.

  1. Beautiful painting to start the new year!
    Moving to Australia? Living in a traveling caravan? Karen, you are going on an adventure of a lifetime! Bet it will provide you with so many wonderful opportunities to paint and allow you to meet some great people! And it will give you endless blogging subjects - even the photographs alone. You could even write a book!
    Well, wishing you safe travels and much happiness! Can't wait to read all about it.

    1. Thanks Chris,
      Yes I'm looking forward to the traveling and being able to paint whenever I want to. Not sure about writing a book though...I'm not a great writer!
