Barn #17, The Hammerhead Crane at Bremerton Navy Yard, and a Smoky Sunset on Sinclair Inlet

Here are my three latest paintings. 

The barn is a local one, just a few miles from me on a road we rarely travel. I had forgotten about it. We took a ride down that way to visit a park and I took some photo references on the way back, when the light and shadows were a bit more interesting to me. 

The Crane and the Sunset images are representations of what the wildfires on the West Coast have done to the palette of the sky here in Washington State. I've painted that weird little tree a few times before in different times of the year, and I've certainly done a number of foggy views of the Navy Yard. The violet sky was intriguing to me. 

All three paintings are oils on canvas.

I've been seeing smoky sunrises and sunsets across a lake and the Deschutes Channel for a week. Good job capturing the feel.

Thanks, alsoknownas. Today's light continues orange even in daylight.

I love these! Here is one of my recent works. I love to do reflections on the water, which I find some what tricky but it's all fun!

Thank you, Dicky. Reflections are a fun challenge. I like the colors in your painting. Is that a watercolor?

Yes it's a watercolor. I work mostly in that medium but I am learning acrylics and dabbling with oils. The oils are giving me a hard time!

Dicky, I don't paint in watercolors usually, as I find them hard to handle. From art school until 3 years ago ( 3 decades) I painted with acrylics, and I wasn't that great at it. Oils are new for me at 3 years in. It was love at first encounter! I find them easier than acrylics as I appreciate the long working time and ability to manipulate the surface in ways that I couldn't manage with acrylics. It's certainly a whole different set of techniques.
