Cumberland Yard

This painting contains a house from Cumberland, my buddies car (the red/pink Plymouth), 2 cars from a commission and a coupe (on the left) from an old junkyard now gone. Bink for illumination and copyright infringement.

This pops up really nicely revealing wonderful splashes of color. Also, you're so much more productive than I am on all levels. I also like the comment about copyright infringement -- funny!

I missed your beautiful art and your great sense of humor. I missed a lot of stuff and it'll likely happen again but for now I'm back.

I love the red. The cars jump out so good in this one even with the red house. I don't know how you did it.
I think it's the light or something, I just want to reach into it.

Thanks Tom, good to hear from you again, save me a book.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., I did it mostly with brushes. I liked this painting but when I posted it on the WetCanvas somebody said the red car was at the wrong angle and spoiled the painting.

I so admire your ability to combine elements together into a completely beautiful and believable piece! The reds in this are great. (I'm working on a commission piece right now with a red barn in it, and it's giving me fits!) Nice work, as always!

Wonderful reds in this!! I love the house as well as the cars.

What the magenta you think you're doing? Heh... and next to the yellow and all. You have been emboldened and have embolded a bold color scheme on a rustic wreck cowection. The drawing ain't bad neither... too.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Liz, I really enjoy creating my own scenes.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, red is a challenging colour to use.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., colour is the thing if it is.

I've missed a few posts over the last couple of weeks, and this last one is great. As well as the marvelous brushwork that you should be and would like to be know for...there is, like, there is a hallucinogenic quality, like, that is like, appropriate for, like, Cumberland, man.
Hey are you interested in life drawing? I was drinking dinner at the Waverly last night with a group of Cumberlanders who are going to get a life drawing group together in the next couple of weeks.

The house in the back is really well done. It's all good.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Clive, maybe later but for now I have to concentrate on selling some stuff or its a lump of coal...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I'm glad its well done rather than half-baked. Pup pictures to come.

Ok...so why are you not posting this beautiful piece in the gallery? Really nice sense of color and composition. We miss you. When are you coming back?

Find this one exciting Ron. Both the background and foreground colors work well with the subjects.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Madison, I am thinking about it.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Dorothy, Marshall used it for his business card.

Great brilliant colors and full of detail. Good job Ron.
