"59 Dargon Rd., Belfast, Northern Ireland" by Pat Koscienski

"59 Dargon Rd., Belfast, Northern Ireland"
8" x 10"
Acrylic
This painting was done for Bill Duffey's Virtual Paintout. We painted this month in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I think the yellow flowers in the photo is what really caught my eye. The mountain in the back almost reminds me of the ridge at Fort Hunter, Harrisburg, PA, especially the way the mist is hanging near the top.

"Roof Top Voyeur" by Pat Koscienski

"Roof Top Voyeur"
12" x 9"
Acrylic

"Roof Top Voyeur" is the painting I sent to Karin Jurick for the DSFDF Roof Tops challenge . I thought by putting in the pigeon, I would have less building tops to worry about. LOL I feel that I need to put in the window sill to the right, however, I'm now out of space. I thought the pigeon's neck would be enough to direct the eye back into the painting, but I still feel like I'm going to fall out of the canvas. Maybe some sheer curtains? Or, maybe a diptych?

"Autumn Morning" by Pat Koscienski

"Autumn Morning"
Oil on canvas
8" x 10"
With autumn here and leaves in Pennsylvania starting to change color, I thought I would post some of my autmun paintings from past years. "Autumn Morning" was inspired by my drive home....driving down Pleasantville Road approaching Benyou's barn. The light was hitting like the light in a John Baptiste Camille Corot's painting....dark in the foreground and light in the midground....directing attention to this area. As I drove, I snapped a digital picture and this is the resulting painting.

"28 R. da Veronica, Lisbon, Portugal Revisited" by Pat Koscienski

"28 R. da Veronica, Lisbon, Portugal Revisited"
10" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas
I worked on this piece a little more (from the September Virtual Paintout). I changed the hue of the buildings on the viewer's left side from a warm sienna to the grayed blue/green of the right side, but lighter in value. I felt this unified the painting a little better. I also lightened the buildings on the right, but made sure to keep the left side the lightest. This helped the street look darker and hopefully put the focal point on the building near the cars. Do you feel this helped? Or, do you feel the first version was better? Let me know... I'm in Belfast this month and need to work on scoping out a vista for that painting.

Kings Gap Vista I by Pat Koscienski

" Kings Gap Vista I"
20" x 10"
Acrylic

"Kings Gap Vista I" is an acrylic painting on canvas painted plein air at Kings Gap State Park in Pennsylvania. Several of the artists in our plein air group painted at least once/week during the month of September to prepare paintings for the Kings Gap Fall Festival on October 4. It could not have been a nicer day for a paint out. It's a 4 mile drive from the entrance of the park to the top where the mansion and gardens are located...the road is barely wide enough for 2 cars and nothing but sharp curve after sharp curve. But, once at the top, the view is spectacular. The herb and flower gardens, pond, and mansion are true subjects for plen air painters. To see more photos of the artists and paintings that the 6 of us artists displayed in the mansion, visit Claire Carnell's blog spot at http://www.clairebcarnell.blogspot.com/ If interested in purchasing this painting contact Pat at patsfineart@hotmail.com If interested in seeing more of Pat's paintings, abstract and representational, visit my website at http://www.patkoscienski.com/
