San Jose, California - Original Acrylic Landscape Painting for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout Challenge by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski


San Jose, California
8 x 10
Acrylic on canvas
This painting was done for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout Challenge. This month we were to paint the San Francisco Bay area with Santa Rosa to the north, Atioch to the east, and San Jose to the south. Using the Google Map Street View, I found this beautiful scene in the San Jose area and loved the colors. There were several others of equal beauty, so hopefully I will have time to revisit and paint more of these rural scenes. I used a palette knife thinking I would loosen up when painting these photographs onto a small canvas, however, it still is a bit fussier than I like. But, sometimes, I just end the "conversation" between the painting and me, and just let it rest.

Leo - Acrylic Impressionistic Painting of a Lion on Canvas by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski


"Leo"
11" x 14"
Acrylic
"Leo" was painted in acrylic on a textured gallery wrapped canvas. I started this out with the idea that I wanted to abstract him using a lot of texture. However, what I want and what I get, is not always the same. I always say, it is a conversation between me and the painting...the process or conversation continues until we are both in agreement. So, it is an impressionistic painting of a lion on a very textured gallery wrapped canvas.

Robert Henri's Catharine - Acrylic Portrait on Canvas by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

Robert Henri's Catharine
7" x 5"
Acrylic
Robert Henri's Catharine was painted for Michelle Burnett's Following the Masters Challenge. This month's challenge was to be inspired by the work and philosophy of Robert Henri. When Henri's circle was rejected in the National Academy of Design exhibit in 1907, he organized a show of his own that included a group known as "The Eight"...Arthur Davies, Robert Henri, William Glackens, Ernest Lawson, George Luks, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Everett Shinn. It was revolutionary for it's subject, gritty urban scenes and "art for life's sake". Their work would later be characterized as the Ashcan School. We could choose to copy one of his works or be inspired to paint a dirty urban from the Ashcan School movement. I decided to copy one of his many portraits, Catharine. I, also, painted his street scene with snow which I will post later.
