I painted on the beach today and it was refreshing! Here are 8×8 daily paintings from Lincoln Beach. Number 3 was painted plein air and the others were painted at my campsite.
Other artisans have listed my work on their Etsy Treasuries this month.

This painting was commissioned for a couple that floated the Willamette River years ago.
The technique here uses an alizarin crimson underpainting to keep the palette bright. Once dry, I layered thick and thin swirling and flat layers to build depth.
I’ve painted the edges of the canvas so the image wraps around it, allowing more view from the sides and top and bottom.

$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Silver Creek Falls Middle North Falls, 5.5×8.5 watercolor
We spent a few days hiking the 10 waterfalls at Silver Creek Falls State Park. Even though it rained most of the time, we were able to hike them all.
Holding an umbrella for miles is like using a cane; a little extra work but worth it.
Because it wasn’t hot and crowded, we were able to hike pretty quickly.
$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Clear Lake 4, oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord, unframed.
Clear Lake is one of my favorite spots in Oregon. You can fish in quiet, camp, and eat a burger if necessary. The water is clear, of course, and provides colorful reflections for painting.
Monthly Painting Challenge for February is to paint your rendition of some ripples at the shoreline.
This image is painted with thinned oil on Ampersand Claybord and scratched with pencil and rubber-tipped brushes.

Last week I was commissioned to paint a previous plein air daily painting onto a larger panel. We settled 40×30 inches:
Columbia River Gorge Beacon Rock from Rooster Rock 2
Then I could not stop…I had to paint it again, only 48×48. Which one will they choose?

I’m hanging some work at the Albany Heartspring Wellness Center but they needed another piece for an exam room.
This image is based on a smaller daily painting done earlier this year. We’ll see how it looks on their deep orange wall.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 10, 8×8 oil on claybord SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 11, 8×8 oil on claybord
It was class outdoors again last evening. We painted at the Crystal Lake Boat Landing in Corvallis. Due to the heat of the day, many folks were boating, rafting, mud-soaking, and biking. The atmosphere was jubilant.
My favorite scene was the harmonica player conoeing with two dogs. He floated down river then appeared again later; he must have done the whole trip again! The lighting and the music seemed to transport me back 200 years and I expected Tom Sawyer to come strolling by.

Years ago I photographed some water floats waiting for a Portland Rose Festival race. I’m finally getting around to working on some paintings from the references.
This is a close up of a larger photo offered in the May 2010 Monthly Painting Challenge. Join in and show us your ideas! SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crows at the Beach 7, 8×8 oil on clayboard
I’ve sold the other two of this composition, so felt compelled to paint it again.
I find painting ripples a challenge to render and they are quite different every time I do them.
When painted on Claybord, it is tougher to get smaller ripples. I’ll try it again on Gessobord to accomplish that.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Crows at the Beach 3, oil on 8×8 gessobord.
I sold the second Crows on the Beach this week but wasn’t quite ready to give up on the subject matter.
The crows are fun to paint but I like the challenge of painting the water in various colors and shapes.
