Lavender

Title: Lavender Oil on 9" x 12" Masonite

Lavender 9" x 12" Oil on Masonite

Here's another painting from my last outing at Port Credit harbour. Painting outside is still a mystery for me, but I am sticking with it, may figure it out in time. The day was so bright that this one came out fairly dark, but at least it's consistent throughout the painting so I am OK with that.

Currently this isn't for sale as someone has shown interest in this one, to see more of my work please visit my website at www.davefroude.com

Enjoy,

Lighthouse

Title: Lighthouse Oil on 9" x 12" Masonite.

Hey so, I have finally been out on location painting, been out twice in the last 2 weeks, this is a local scene in Mississauga, Port credit harbour.  I have got together with a few art buddies and we go out 1 a week, so exciting.

Painting outdoors is quite a bit different from studio painting, light changes so fast normally I take my time getting my lighting and values sorted out but if you do this outside the scene has changed so drastically you may as well start over, not to mention the colours I mixed up came out rather dark because of how bright it was outside. Anyway the spot we chose this time is quite busy so lots of people watching us paint and offering words of encouragement.

Cherries

Cherries - Oil on 11" x 14" wood panel $350

Was out earlier in the day, Plein-air painting, when I got home was still in the mood to paint, found these great cherries cooling in the fridge. My first ever plein air painting didn't turn out so well, but I was warned before hand that things are quite a bit different in the field, sure enough, the atmosphere changed so fast, and before I knew it things just got away from me, still I loved getting outside and will be heading on on Friday with a few new art buddies.

Creamer

 Title: Creamer 12" x 12" Oil on wood panel

Hey what's happening?

Sorry for the delay, see this one has been finished for quite sometime and just getting this up for every one to see. Hey so I learned something with this painting. All these years I have been struggling with white objects and it turns out we have been lied to, turns out white isn't white at all., apart from the highlights on the dairy creamer being white or an off-white as in this case, white is actually being influenced by everything else around it, including lighting influences. Hm. If this little tidbit helps at least one person than my job here is complete.
