Large Landscape Painting, Storm Painting, "StormFront" by Carol Schiff, 24x30x1.5" Original Oil Painting

In the tropics, the storms come in quickly and violently!  This large landscape painting attempts to convey the power and drama of these events.

I painted with a palette knife and tried to keep all the strokes visible and strong. 



Some areas have extremely thick paint.



This is a study for a 48x60" piece that I am planning.


Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Small Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Lemon Still Life, "A Classic Set-Up" by Carol Schiff, 8x10 Original

Yes indeed, this is a classic set-up!  This small still life painting was completed during an Elio Camacho workshop last fall.

 I found the workshop to be both helpful and exciting.  Elio's gave us some information that I had not heard before, especially about the direction of strokes and color.



I don't take a lot of workshops and always get very stressed in them, trying to follow my instructor's information.  This workshop was no different.  I ended up with paintings that looked unlike Elio's and unlike mine.  However, Elio is a very talented artist and instructor and I immediately signed up for a second workshop with him this spring.  Hopefully I will be a bit more relaxed next time.

Marsh Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "North Florida Marsh" by Carol Schiff, 6x8 Original Oil

This marsh landscape painting is inspired by a trip to Fernandina Beach.  I was captivated by the autumn colors of the marshes.

Yes, we do have fall color in Florida.....you just have to look a little harder to find it.


It may not be on the trees, and it may not be in October.  I was just noticing how beautiful the red maple trees in our yard looked last week. The leaves were a lovely burgundy color.....perfect during the Christmas season.  Of course, we don't have thousands of trees in glorious color like you will find in the North, but I like to think the beaches and mild winter weather make up for it. :)

Mountain Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Morning Mist" by Carol Schiff, 12x12x1.5 Original

When I am in the mountains of North Carolina, I love to start the day with a cup of coffee on the front porch.  It is fascinating to watch the sun break over the mountains and burn off the morning mist that collects in the valley in the evening.

Tip for artists:  Instead of purchasing art books, I purchase paintings from my favorite artists.  I find it much more helpful for me to study technique and brushwork from an actual example instead of a book.  I have the added benefit of owning original artwork which I enjoy daily in my home.

There is something special about this painting.  Yes, I painted it, and the composition is not the best, and yet I keep coming back to it.  Maybe it is the color, or the texture or the knife work.....I don't know, but it intrigues me.
