This summer my main interest was in painting clouds because that’s when they’re at their best here.
This summer most of my paintings are cloud-centric and atmospheric. This painting is of the Stuart Beach lifeguard station.
More paintings to follow. Photography required.
Two of my plein air paintings were selected to be in this invitational show, which is already hung at the Elliot.
If you are in the area, hope you get a chance to swing by. 🙂
This small watercolor study is for up for auction on my Daily Paintworks Gallery page.
It was mostly about the clouds.
These two plein air paintings of the St. Lucie River were done at the Veterans Memorial Park in Port St. Lucie, FL. One is smaller. I was on a huge boardwalk. Several other people painted from the giant size picnic pavillion. It was a breezy, pleasant day with jumping fish.
My website was getting too confusing for me so I’ve started another website strictly for illustrations. This website will continue to be for fine art.
The new blog/website is here: https://doreeneleporeillustrator.wordpress.com/
I’ll probably still be cross pollinating them for a while – transitions are confusing.
Recently we, my plein air group, went to the Indiantown Marina. I had no idea how interesting it would be since this was my first visit there. The marina is mostly a boat yard, with rows and rows of dry docked boats. The boat I painted was called Topaz. I took pictures of many other boats and hope to paint them in the future.
Here is a plein air painting recently done on a Tuesday, of course.
This church is at the center of Hobe Sound, FL and is different on every side. So, I need to go back 3 more times at least to paint the whole church. It was a clear beautiful day and I was happy with this small charming painting.
Last Tuesday, not yesterday but Tuesday of last week, we painted at the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, a narrow strip of land called Gilbert’s Bar. It was a nice breezy day and I decided to paint the beach instead of the buildings. The limestone rocks alone are an interesting subject. Even though I had time for a second small painting I still painted the rocks and ocean instead of the buildings. So here are mama and baby paintings from last Tuesday.
Met some friendly beach walkers and one dog that was mostly interested in digging to China.
