Sun On The Rails

I go up to the rail road tracks just outside my old studio location about a mile away from my present studio to see what's shaking there. This was shaking at sunset. Acrylic (is there no better medium then this!!!) on stretched canvas.

Wow amazing! And I love the movie too, but have been insane getting ready for a group show in New York. I'm in New York as I write this thinking this painting should be here too, and the incredible artist who painted it!

Ciao,

Barbara

I like how you have captured the dark at sunset ! Beautiful texture too. I take a new interest in acrylics now since I just inherited a bunch of canvases and acrylic paints from a dear friend. Do you have any tips/advice for watercolorist trying acrylics for the first time? Thanks in advance :)

Oh David; this is just beautiful. Reminds me of rural area out near where I live and just brings so many thoughts and some memories to mind. Lovely piece!

Your artist's eyes have taken something that is pretty mundane and often ugly and made it beautiful.

Kathy said...

Awesome painting David. I am taking an acrylic workshop this Saturday. I will let you know if it is the best medium. lol

David,
Your colors are just so right. I have a hard time with the colors drying darker when I use acrylics and sometimes it is hit or miss. Do you have any suggestions? Do you use a special brand?

Barbara, Break a leg in NY with the group show! I've never been to the Big Apple and wanna go one day! Glad you like my painting marks on canvas.

David Lobenberg said...

David Lobenberg said...

Thank you Geert-Jan! From a man from a country famed for artists who painted (and most likely, still do!) wonderful skies!

David Lobenberg said...

Thank you Kathy! My goodness, your abstracts are SICK! That's Calif. surfer lingo for WONDERFUL!!

David Lobenberg said...

Meera, Being a watercolorist myself, I can tell you to start your paintings with somewhat thin paint. Once you've your corrections and any changes and like what's going on, you can thicken up to your hearts content.

David Lobenberg said...

Thanks, Autumn!

Rhonda, That's the cool thing about artist's, we see like infants and enjoy the wonder of it all!

David Lobenberg said...

Kathy, It IS!!!!!

David Lobenberg said...

Prabha, Thanks fellow watercolorist!

David Lobenberg said...

Maria, being a long time watercolorist where one's colors dry lighter, I have no problem with acrylics drying darker! Anyway, if a color is too dark, within a matter of minutes, I can lighten it. I LOVE acrylic paint!

Steven said...

AWESOMENESS!!!! Yeh!

Vinayak said...

Beautiful painting. Railway paintings always have such a nostalgia to them. The effect of the sun peeping from under the clouds is great.

David Lobenberg said...

Thanks, Steven and Vinayak!

This is a GREAT piece! I can't even think of a smart remark to leave.

David Lobenberg said...

Hells bells and shit on a shingle, Bill (Onpainting). I want one of your clever, kick-ass, smart remarks...if not this time then later.
