Recent paintings

Here's two painting I've recently finished, each very different in subject and mood.

Waiting for the seasons to pass
24X36 Acrylic on canvas

 This one was fun to paint, the changing of the season from winter to spring. I love the clarity of those winter days, and the skeletal structure of leafless trees before they burst with spring growth and foliage.

Tulips & Oranges lying over red
18X36 Acrylic on wood

I always love working on this wide landscape aspect, it makes for a fun composition. Balancing the repetition of tones and color of the subjects; for example the placement of the lemons and plums as they stretch across the composition.

  1. Love your winterscape Angus, it captured the season perfectly.

    I am really drawn to the color red in the still life. Beautiful composition!
