This tiny dancer is only a 6" x 4". Created in acrylic paint using a pallet knife. Feeling blessed and full of joy, just like this dancer.

Original Still Life Flower Watercolor Painting "A Touch of Orange" by Georgia Artist Deanna Jaugstetter

On Fridays, I meet with a group of artist friends to paint and do art talk! We often set up a still life of flowers which one of the participants brings for set up! "A Touch of Orange", a still life watercolor painting on paper, is inspired by this mixed bouquet of beautiful summer flowers! The loose interpretation of the bouquet makes for a lively and spontaneous creation resulting from a delightful painting experience! The painting is beautifully double matted, with glass , and custom framed!

Ballet Dancer Work In Progress Figure Study Painting by Contemporary Figurative Fine Artist Kristye Addison Dudley


Ballet Dancer - Work in Progress © Kristye Addison Dudley


It's been a wet rainy day here in Georgia, but no complaints. I've been enjoying my family and listening to the sound of the water outside.

I've been hunkering down in the studio this month to paint. Tonight, I painted with my supportive husband by my side. I haven't finished this piece, but I did love having my best friend with me.

Here's day 18 - ballet dancer work in progress.


Have a blessed Easter Weekend,
Kristye

Sketch of a figure study using oil pastels. I used to love working in these, so it was nice to dust them off. Looking forward to painting this one. Dancer was inspired by a photo of Judith Jamison of Alvin Ailey.

Original Contemporary artwork by expressionist artist Isabelle Gautier, "Rest IS On Its Way"

30in x 30in "Rest Is On Its Way"
                                                      Acrylic executed with palette knife

Can minimalism be categorized in expressionism?....

I believe so;  expressionism is after-all  "a style of painting...in which the artist ...seeks to express emotional experience rather than impressions of the external world".

Blue Ballet Dancer Figure Study Painting by Contemporary Figurative Fine Artist Kristye Addison Dudley


Dance Figure Study Blue © Kristye Addison Dudley
10" x 8" Purchase Original or Prints



 Day 16 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.

As a former gymnast, collegiate cheerleader and professional cheerleader it's no surprise that dancers are a favorite subject matter of mine. I have always enjoyed painting the dynamic expression of the body. Figure painting is something that I am continually drawn to. Now that I am at the half way point
of 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, I am going to focus on more figures. The new palette of colors that I am using is proving a bright change of perspective to the stylized figures.




Be Blessed,
Kristye

Original Still Life Floral Oil Painting "Catching The Light" by Georgia Artist Deanna Jaugstetter

                                        

 As I painted this floral oil painting in my studio, the light coming from the window stayed consistent until the end. Often, a light source will change dramatically, challenging the artist in that he must remember the initial inspiration for the painting. For me, so often it is the way light falls across the subject matter! Such is the joy and challenge of painting from life. Hydrangea is a southern flowering bush that brings me great joy in my garden from mid spring through late June!

I have been challenging myself to paint new subject matter, but I still love figures. This is a study of a ballet dancer in flight. I am going to work on this figure on a larger scale in the future. Here is the rough draft.

I am on Day 14 of a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.

I just wasn't satisfied with the painting I started last night, so I painted another one! That is what this challenge is about, pushing myself and taking chances.

My sweet husband brought home a bouquet of my favorite flowers today, wildflowers and roses. The bouquet included a beautiful red sunflower and here it is.


Be Blessed,

"Marigold Trio" © Kristye Addison Dudley
10" x 8" Acrylic on Canvas Paper Purchase Original or Prints


As a mother of a 3 year old and a 20 month old, Saturdays can be very busy.

Here has been our day so far. Breakfast, shopping, Frozen (twice), lunch, played outside (bubbles/play set) and nap time. During nap, mommy got to PAINT! These marigolds were painted with a palette knife using short strokes and layering. Such a beautiful day. Time to wake up the babies and get outside. Maybe we will find more flowers for me to paint.

Hope you are having a great Saturday.

Original Georgia Landscape Painting With Neighborhood, House "Juliette" by Georgia Artist Deanna Jaugstetter

My first plein air painting outing with Oil Painters of America was a treat! Fifty or so members of this highly recognized group gathered to paint on location of Whistlestop Cafe in Juliette, Georgia. This famous cafe is where most of the scenes from the widely viewed movie,"Fried Green Tomatoes" was filmed. I still remember the scene in the field with Izzy and the bees! " Juliette" is an architectural/landscape painting of what was once the courthouse! What intrigued me were the shadows that fell across the buildings in the early morning sun!

10" x 8" Acrylic on Canvas Paper Purchase Prints


When I decided to look at my hometown of Clemson, SC for inspiration, the first visual images that popped into my head were of the flowers in Spring. The town was full of beautiful flowers, many were orange like the Marigolds featured above.

Orange Flower Landscape Painting “Tiger Lily” by Contemporary Figurative Fine Artist Kristye Addison Dudley



"Tiger Lily" © Kristye Addison Dudley
10" x 8" Acrylic on Canvas Paper



Not only did I grow up in the town of Clemson, but I am a graduate of Clemson University. One thing that our campus is full of is beautiful flowers and landscapes. Tiger Lily flowers, orange roses always remind me of my beautiful hometown.
Techniques used in this work were the use of dark under-painting and contrasting highlights mostly applied with a "dry" paint knife.

Be blessed,
Kristye
