A triptych journey,creating a large oil painting part 2

To continue my journey painting my "Aspen Story" (c)2009;
I blocked in color in my sections on my canvas. I like to paint the darkest focus, first.
This is where the viewers eye perceives depth.
I line up my first (middle) completed canvas next to my working canvas.
I want these to be a continuous landscape.
So on to painting my trees.
Stay tuned for my next blog to see where this journey goes;

A triptych journey, creating a large oil painting

This is the second of three canvas blocked in.
I usually use a base color in each section that can show through the finished painting.
i have found useing and shipping a very large canvas can be a challenge, so I love to use several.
                                    This painting is continuous and  painted in series.
                                                           These aspen trees are from the past Autumn,
                                                           they are  so beautiful and always changing.
                                                   Stay tuned to see this painting evolve
  I will post my progress weekly on this blog. Enjoy!

"Sunflowers & Daisies" by Colorado artist BarbYatesDudding

This was a spontaneous and fun painting.
I wanted to capture the sunflowers before they started to drupe.
I painted ala prima so the paint is thick and the brush strokes are bold.

"Blue Iris" by Colorado artist BarbYatesDudding

Blue Iris 11x14 oil on canvas
Spring is finally here. I painted these iris's from my friend Leslie's garden.
 They are so beautiful and lacy, with deep soft color.
These iris were such a dark violet they were close to black.
Look for more flower paintings:

Aspens, Early Snow, by Colorado Artist BarbYatesDudding

10x20 oil on canvas
As always, I love to paint trees.
This grove of Aspen trees are across the road from me, so they are my subject of many
Quote by c.c. Cummings;
i thank you God  for most this amazing day; for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes!
