New Landscape In Casein

"Crowing Crabby #4"  Casein   6x8"       copyright 2012

The past week was like summer...and I spent the greater part of my days working in the gardens, but I have to limit my time in the garden, so I did retreat to my studio for a part of each day and  I completed 2 caseins....a small crow painting on canvas on board and a larger landscape work on paper. I had a copper panel ready and waiting on an easel, but never actually got to it until this weekend....more on that later.

"Marshall Point Lighthouse, Port Clyde,Maine"  11 x 15"  copyright 2012
The old light house where the keeper of the Port Clyde harbor light lived, is an awesome house standing big and white and imposing on the winter bare Marshall Point. It was a cold windy day when we went there and I was taken with the starkness of the house and terrain and the white bright sun light on the house. I hope I have captured that here....in my casein on 300 lb Sennelier watercolor paper.This landscape is available on my website in the Landscape Collection. 'The Crowing Crabby #4"  painting will be up on my Small Works   Collection page.

I have been asked to show how I do my casein work, such as the above landscape above, from start to finish. I will make a point of explaining that soon....I promise!

Bonjour !
Je suis totalement autodidacte et je serais moi aussi très intéressée de voir l'évolution de votre travail à la caséine...
Vous avez réussi à merveille la capture de l'atmosphère de cette maison qui entre autre est superbe malgré son austérité.
Je pense que votre petite corneille serais heureuse de planer près de ce lieu également... Deux très jolies pentures.
Gros bisous
