These two paintings are the result of my experimentation with color. I tend to stick with the "real" local color in most of my paintings but I thought I would just use colors that I love and the combinations kinda worked! These two were from some photos I had taken while kayaking this summer and although the area was very beautiful all I saw in the photos was green. I took a chance and made these two a fall landscape and I am pleased with the results. These are for sale for $100 each on Dailypaintworks.com. http://www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/linda-yurgensen-3811/artwork
I really like the color combination in this one and have plans to do a larger studio piece in the future. I love using these 8 x 10 inch panels for studies because they are a manageable size for finishing in one sitting yet they can also stand alone as a piece of art in a nice frame or part of a grouping of similar sizes.
I was very honored to be asked to co-author this book available for sale as of August 2014 online and in many fine book stores. The book features the work of several fine artists as well as myself giving instruction on how to paint still life in acrylics. The book is beautiful and very helpful to anyone wanting to learn how to paint landscapes, still life and animals in acrylic and is full of great advice and lovely pictures explaining how to step by step.
