Rainbow Valley Australia, acrylic painting abstracted landscape by Daily painter Chris Hobel another step towards the finish line

Rainbow Valley, Northern Territory Australia
Acrylic Painting with texture by Chris Hobel 
I managed to get an interesting long walk  in this mornning on the beach with my trusty umbrella in tow, it was well used  I might say.
As the weather is quite warm the beach  was busy on this public holiday and  a little  rain makes it more fun.  Not so fun now as is bucketing down.
Good painting weather  so I got a few hours work in this afternoon
. I often like my paintings very early on and should have someone there to say ... thats good, leave it.
I feel a painting needs a certain amount of time to be worthy of selling. How crazy is that. I must get over it. These are pretty rough photos as  I had to stand above on a chair for the last one as it was wet on the base.

This is the  almost finished one, I think I like the darker mood on the top picture. I always find the foreground the most difficult in a landscape. What do you think?

Rainbow Valley Painting first steps by Chris Hobel
Today I worked on a commission 24x36" of Rainbow Valley  Northern Territory Australia.... Ive made some progress its on its way but I still need to do the foreground.  I sold the original painting of Rainbow Valley recently  but another client wants a similiar painting. As it was painted several years ago, it will be interesting to see the change in style I made. Its done mainly with the palette knife with acrylics on a backgound of modelling paste, my latest thing.   
Ive made a slide show of my progress but it still is not complete so check again soon for the final installment. The rain continues after a small repreive for christmas day but at least it remains coolish...good painting weather. 
We had a  yummy christmas  seafood lunch   of Sydney Rock Oysters, Queensland King Prawns, Caesar salad , Potato salad and ice cream cake.............what did you have ?

Large Tuscan Village Oil Painting by Daily painter Chris Hobel Noosa Heads Australia

This is the final version, 24x36" a large traditional landscape of a pretty Tuscan village. As you can see from the animation, it has add a few additions and removals. I often prefer the early stages of my painting to the finsihed versions. I need to follow my own advice KISS, keep it simple stupid.  I have painted this scene a few times . I was pretty happy with it in the end
Enjoy the animation

Decided to try a different sky colour from the usual but ended up with a few solutions. The dark green foreground didnt seem right so I bravely added red to give it some more strong colour as in the orange sky. I quite liked it as a painting but it didnt quite look like the bright green sugar cane fields, more like poppy field...not a convincing look in the sub tropics..... I would love to see what you think... which one do you like the best
