New School Color - Casey Klahn
Great muted colors. The river shows the calm of an early morning or just at dusk. Really nice painting.
Thank you, Miki!
Like this painting very much Casey - it seems to be so simple but that is not the case - just like in the quote. Very well realized!
Another beauty! I love this series and your interpretations of the river- bravo!
Thanks very much, Deborah. I'm happy you like these.Petra, thanks for reading closely - I appreciate it.
You have created a mood with the colors - you can feel the light fading away.Jean
Great to meet you, Jean. I'll be at the Sausalito Art Festival in Sept.- I hope you'll say hi.
This is beautiful. I love the blocks of colour and how they work so well to provide the image.
Thanks, Jeanette! The blocks-of-color thing will be present in a lot of these water pictures, now. A cool way to do abstracts, I feel.
Oh... took my breath away.
P.S. Do you work on different colored surfaces depending on the subject, or do you tend to stick to a certain color surface that you use regardless of subject matter?
Jala, the La Carte Sienna (a middle brown) is my mainstay. I vary sometimes to the dark gray or the antique white, which cover darker or lighter. For a warm dark paper, i use the dark brown.Also, if I want detail, or a particular under painting, or pure white, I use Kitty Wallis' paper.For abstracts, I can't do better than Diane Townsends's paper. It allows for better erasing and rubbing.Thanks for the question.
Casey, Your recent work has been awesome....what beautiful, bold, yet emotional work. I love them all water dance, naked tree and this one!
Thank you, Loriann!
