Contemporary American Realism in colorful oil paintings by Libby Manchester Gilpatric of coastal and rural New England landscapes, urban studies, interiors, still life, figures and critters. Some win awards. Some wind up in private collections.
I love this Libby as I am pretty much daunted in the presence of a tree!I need to get out there and paint more of them.
Carlson says, ...the way to learn to paint trees is by "much drawing of trees." Just completing an online study of the Drawing and Painting of Trees with Deborah Paris. I could not finish all the assignments, but my eyes are opened to many new possibilities - sensitivity-to-trees-training. The challenge is difficult but energizing! also studying waves independently!
And did I say, "thank you, Anne!" Love getting your comments!
This painting sold at the South Coast Artists Open Studio Tour on Saturday, August 18!
