California Neighborhood Contemporary Impressionism Original Oil Painting Heidi Malott



"Surfer's Bungalow"
oil on panel 
6x6"

Reduce-Reuse-Recycle is today's mantra.  I have a stack of paintings that failed miserably and never need to see the light of day.  So every once in a while (usually when I run out of primed panels and don't have time to prepare them and just want to paint) I pluck one from this sad pile and just paint over the old painting. 

I always feel such relief when I can "rescue"one from the pile :)

Open Air Farmer's Market 8x8" Contemporary Impressionism Heidi Malott


Fresh Produce
8x8"
oil on canvas panel


detail:





Ok, photographing wet paint on canvas is harsh as you can see.  I am happy to say this painting looks much better in person.  I am enjoying painting on the larger panels but I will have to order more soon.  This one is a bit different from my usual.  As you can see I let a lot of the underlying sketch which is quite dark show in the painting.  This gives a bold contrast, but please note, I never use the color black straight from a tube, way too harsh and nothing in nature is that dark.  Please do not buy a tube of black paint, mix your own, it will be richer and not too dark.  I mix cadmium orange with French ultramarine blue at varying strengths for brown all the way to my darkest darks :)

I squinted my eyes and focused on painting shapes.  It was a fun process and good exercise in painting what I see and fighting my mind's eye or what our brain tells us what we see.

Cosmos Flower Garden Original Art Heidi Malott



"Cosmos"
oil on panel
6x6"

Cosmos, what a cool name for a flower.   They are actually in the sunflower family.  (see my post from yesterday)

Having Spring fever, these were a treat to paint.   Cosmos were the first flower I ever started from seed.  I got them from a lovely neighbor back when I was going to college.  They are so dainty looking yet very hardy.  The great thing is they re-seed themselves and come back every year in abundance. 

I miss having Cosmos, I will have to find a good spot for some this year.
