Storm Clouds, Contemporary Seascape Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
6"x8" Oil $95
The ocean, the clouds, the breaking waves - all are endlessly fascinating and soothing to me. Living here in the desert, missing the coast every day, it helps to paint and "be there" if only in my imagination.

Now that I'm back in the Valley of the Sun these beach images seem dream-like.
Working on 300 lb. watercolor paper, my objective was to paint JUST enough, i.e., the right strokes,  the right shapes, the right ratio of water to pigment. And find a pleasing composition and "feel." This one hit it for me.

Dreams, Beach Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
5" x 7" Watercolor, $75
Painting with watercolor on Yupo paper was a brand new experience for me. I had the good fortune to spend a month in Fernandina Beach, FL, this past September. I took watercolors on this trip since they're easier to transport than oils, and, I wanted to explore watercolor techniques.

Somewhere, Contemporary Abstract Landscapes by Amy Whitehouse

Image
9" x 12" Oil

Solitude 2, Seascape and Figurative Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image

With painted edges this one is ready to hang as is. The subject of a solitary person looking out over the sea is a favorite of mine. I long to be there especially on this day of 114 degree heat in the Valley of the Sun. Painting the cooling colors of the sea and the shadows on land transport me to an ever-enthralling place.

8"x8" Oil on Paper
Roses are blooming in my backyard  and their structure and colors have captured me. When I was little I'd help my dad tend to the roses and we'd try to  memorize the name of each one.
I think the hints of blue and the neutral background set this one off.

It was so satisfying creating this red chair.  I picture it in sumptuous velvet inviting me to, "Come, sit."
