The Beach Connection, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
Oil, 6" x 6" $95
This small painting evokes the watery, cool atmosphere of walking on a beach. At least I hope it does for my viewers. Two people have just met, having walked from opposite directions, or two people started out together and are now discussing something rather passionately. You decide.

Hiking early in the mornings here in the Valley of the Sun, hoping to beat the heat as temps climb into the triple digits. The beauty of a new dawn breaking is moving beyond words. So I try to paint the emotion.

Sea Oats at Sunset, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 6" Oil, $95
I'm loving painting on these 6" x 6" Ampersand panels.
Every day I'm excited to try a new scene on these small, slippery canvas boards. I get new finishes and am challenged to produce different textures. In this one I wanted the sky to have soft edges and the sea oats in the foreground to stand out with harder edges.

Daffodil Trio, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
Oil, 6" x 8" $150
Lately I've been thinking more about the structure of specific flowers, as well as the way light falls on my subjects. Composition is always uppermost in my mind, and I want to give the background some interest. I love the neutral foil to the bright blooms.

Orange and Blue, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Oil, $150
For me drawing is a discipline. I want to get right into color. And so I struggle with proportions and symmetry. I practice those elements with cups and saucers because the proportions are different every time, and these are symmetrical objects. Just in case you wonder why I do so many cups and saucers.

Irma's Gift, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 8" Oil $200
Last September I experienced Hurricane Irma up close and personally. We were without power for a few days, but fortunately had flashlights and water, so we were fine.
After the hurricane, the beach was a treasure trove. We found several large conch shells  unlike any I'd ever found.
Painting it was challenging and gratifying. Something that was brought up from the deeps had amazing color, shape, texture, and subtlety.

Spring Tulips, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
11" x 14" Oil, $700
Having experimented with dramatic lighting for the past two weeks, I painted one that fits the bill for me. The rich red tulips, the light catching the yellow-green of their stems, and the touches of red in the background and foreground work together in a way that pleases me.
