Abandoned Shrimp Boat painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan


Abandoned Shrimp Boat painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
This Shrimp Boat is in Bon Secour, Al. It was beached during a hurricane and was owned by my uncle Robert Johnson. It is featured in the beginning of the TV series Hart of Dixie. I decided to paint it as I have fond memories of this boat. I ate many shrimp caught on this boat. Anyone who has ever been around a Shrimper knows that this is a hard brutal way to earn a living. I have respect for all those out there who face the weather and elements to bring us good things.6x6 oil on wrapped canvas.

This is so big at 24x48inches. I started this large painting quickly realizing that I was in over my head and then I said to myself...Just breathe. Soon I was lovin painting cows again and everything went fine. It is amazing how sometimes things just turn out ok even when you don't expect it.

Lookin For Chicks rooster painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Lookin For Chicks rooster painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
A very large rooster at a whooping 30x30x1.5 inches. Wow! What have I learned from painting big? 
That Big takes a whole lot of paint. I have enjoyed doing this for a change though. In fact I like it even more than painting little. How can that be I ask? I don't know it is just a pure mystery. I have to admit that I never entertained the thought of painting that large until I went to an art show and saw in person how wonderful Carol Carmichaels paintings were and they were all big so I decided to turn over a new leaf. Hope you enjoy because I am loving them.

Table For Two still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Table For Two still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I painted this for my entry for Savannah Christmas on The River Show.
I had to send in a painting 50% complete and I thought that once again you might like to see the process for my paintings. Oil painting done Alla Prima on 24x12 stretched canvas. I left some bold brush strokes while leaving areas of thick rich paint created by using a palette knife. I added the bright yellow spot of color on the left upper area of the jar and laid in a little purplish right beside it for contrast. I added highlights to the pears and painted the table cloth in and then dragged paint down and across to make the table cloth under the towel.
 This is the start of the painting blocked mainly just establishing location without much crisp detail.
 Next I added the cloth, table edge, and pears.
This is where I start adding the background color and making the water to look like water by going pretty light in the background inside the glass jar. I also add lighter, brighter green yellow stems. I try to keep the cloth without a lot of crisp detail inside and behind the jar so my main focus will not compete for attention.

I would love to hear your comments.

The original painting is not quite this dark but close. 8x10 oil on canvas panel. I don't really know why I don't usually paint landscapes. I think just because it is an unfamiliar area for me.

Late Summer Blooms landscape painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan


Late Summer Blooms landscape painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I am working on the faded mist of the faraway woods. Of course I had to add a portion of fence. Actually The bottom painting is the first one and I called it done but as I looked closer for a little while I knew the color of the water just was not quite right. The top picture is after I went back and added a darker element to the water giving it a stronger more important look. I like it better anyway. I also added more orange in the water and you just can't go wrong with that right?  8x10 oil on canvas panel. landscape.

Violets Among Roses still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Painting is so relaxing. At times I start to get uptight about it and then I make myself take a deep breath and realize that is not drudgery. I do get angry if the painting does not go like I want It to.  I bought this little creamer pitcher in Maine a couple of years ago. It is delicate and one of my favorites. This painting if a 10x8 oil on canvas panel. I painted it on Labor Day this year. I had the most trouble with the basket handle.
