Radial Lines

Radial Shadows
6" x 8" oil on panel
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I've decided to take what we learned in Jill Carver's workshop one step further.  I'm continuing to paint aspen using Edgar Payne's design and subject matter groupings.  These aspen tree trunks are done using his "radial lines" composition.

Pam, I love everything about this painting. The colors, and composition! It is all just outstanding. I also have Edgar Payne's book. It is really a "must have".

Hi, Pam. I love this piece. You obviously took Jill's teaching to heart and Payne's, as well. The abstraction of the bold, simplified forms, together with the color harmony are wonderful.

Pam Holnback said...

Dean, Thank you. It's so motivating to go to workshops. I always bring something home from them!

Thank you Stephen, This is one of my favorites. It just sort of fell into place!

Wow.. really nice! I love all your Edgar Payne inspired studies, especially this one. I've got Payne's book, but I must admit I found it a bit hard to read. Maybe I'll give it another try!
