New “Upside Down” Paintings

July 31, 2011

July Sunset 20x16 ©CWMundy

Raking The Fields 16x20 ©CWMundy

 I drew Raking The Fields in on the canvas right side up, then turned both the canvas and the photo upside down, held the photo in my hand, painted in the shapes on the canvas. I then turned it rightside up, and made corrections and placed detail where needed. The majority of my work is “from life” but when it’s a situation where the subject will not pose for you, you have little choice. To paint this from life, you’d have to wait until it came around the field each time with 10 minute intervals.

And regarding July Sunset…This 20×16 “upside downer” was inspired by Dennis Sheehan’s work, especially sunsets, and also conversations with Dan Gerhartz. This is not an actual scene, I made it all up….I drew it from my imagination rightside up, then painted it upside down, then corrected it rightside up to make it believable. It’s all about the mood. Thank you Dennis and Dan for your inspiration…you guys are awesome !

The Indiana Heritage Arts 2011 Exhibit

June 17, 2011

Creek Near Story 24x30 ©CWMundy

 

Indiana Heritage Arts Annual Exhibition

June 11-25th, Brown County Art Gallery, One Artist Drive, Nashville, IN.

(812) 988-0099

http://www.browncountyartgallery.org/indiana/2011show.html

Exhibit open until June 25, 2011.

This year, the show was juried and prizes selected by Judge Kathryn Stats of
Salt Lake City, Utah.

Judge Stats selected a painting by C.W. Mundy as the IHA
Gold Prize Winner, an Impressionist oil called “Creek Near Story.”

C.W.’s statement :

“Having looked at the list of artists juried into the 2011 show, I realized what a  talented and creative group of artists we have in our state. It is quite an honor for me to be juried into this high quality exhibition and then to win such a nice award.

Regarding the technique of this particular painting, it  was the first of several paintings, in which I experimented with scrubbing in a tonal value with a 1 &  1/2 inch house paint brush… then laying color with a combination of palette knife and mongoose brushes. My intention was to build a strong centrality of focus in a landscape with value and edges to
“guide the eye”.

I’m so grateful to the Lord for giving me this desire to create!

Thank you to all the I.H.A. board for your hard work, to the judge for her efforts to jury and judge, and to all my fellow artists for your encouragement to me and for your passion to create.”
