Canadian Contemporary Landscape Painting Rhythm of the Sea Edith Point Released

Completed in late March 2013, this painting has been slow to release for purchase by Canadian contemporary landscape painter, Terrill Welch. For all its gray-scale rendering this painting is anything but neutral. The sea rolls forward onto the shore. Trees tingle from the day’s sun while the rocks release their summer heat as the water charges across their surface. I am there. You are there. The salt spray is moist on our skin and the rhythm of the sea matches our breath, our heartbeat, and answers a call to all that is knowable.

SOLD The Mt. Baker Reach Canadian landscape painting

There is something about coming to the Mayne Island shore and seeing Mount Baker across the Strait of Georgia that is like magic. No photograph seems to adequately capture my surprise and delight so I took the task to my canvas instead.

Large autumn seascape oil painting released Today – Sliced with a Tear

There is something about autumn by the sea with the gray melancholy wrapped in fall colours. This particular day is one of those slow-baked, melancholy west coast Sundays, so moist and tender you can slice it with a tear.

This is the first of four huge canvases I have completed over the past several months. I started this painting last year about this time but it was not completed until February. However, I was not ready yet to let it go out into the world. I coveted closely, showing it here, on my blog and to close friends, family and art collectors but it was not for sale. Today though, I am ready and I am releasing this painting to a good independently wealthy or willing-to-take-out-a-mortgage home. This is one large painting! :)

Morning In The Kitchen – Small Abstract Painting by Terrill Welch

What do we remember once we have looked away? What is left of the morning light in the kitchen after I have eaten breakfast and climbed the stairs to the studio? Maybe something like this, possibly. A small and rare abstract painting amongst my current body of work. Painting is on gessobord mounted on a two-inch natural wood cradle. No Framing needed.

Blackberries Golden Plums Transparent Apple Still Life Painting

For much of the past couple of months I have been absorbed in the work of Richard Diebenkorn, anAmerican abstract expressionist, and that of Cezanne and Matisse. Painting seems to be primarily about light and colour for me, not in the absence of form but form most often plays second violin – holding the composition together without any solo parts.

The days of light, seasons, colour, form and space collide within my ordered and defined sensory system. Not chaos. No not that. Only adjustments and a release from specifics. Blackberries and golden plums are my favourites. The transparent apples just happen to ripen at the same time adding a nice shape and colour for balancing a still life plate.

Blackberries do not keep for very long on a plate so I took the time to also do a few photography reference images. This one, which is similar to the painting has been released on its own merit as a still life photography image.

Golden Plums An Apple And A Green Vase Still Life Painting

My imagined private studio lessons recently with Cezanne has left me wanting for a chance to peer over his shoulder as he painted and I assume paced his way through long periods of time constructing the structure and rendering his still life paintings. How did he decide to have falling fruit, and tilted vases, tables or twisted warped, walls and furniture with more than one view-point in a single painting? What was it that brought him to these considerations?

My12 x 16 inch oil on canvas painting results are of course a colourful still life that is anything but still.

August Still life with Cezanne and Matisse

There are distinctive elements of Paul Cezanne’s work that go far beyond his use of colour to represent form. He had a way of presenting different viewpoints in his compositions that was and is exciting. This is something that Henri Matisse continued to explore while allowing the paint to become colour fields of flat surfaces. At one point in the of the development of this work I had a choice. I could continue to build up the colour fields or I could continue to follow the light and movement within the still life. Matisse of course was arguing for letting paint be paint in its colour and simplicity. Cezanne was slowly working his way into the tension of form and structure of the still life using colour as his guide. I observed. I thanked the masters. Then I picked up my brush and continued to paint the light and movement between the forms until the painting came to rest.

Seaside Mayne Island oil painting study by Terrill Welch

The evening light is fading as I sidestep my own long shadow to enjoy the view of the shore and sea. This small 10 x 8 inch oil on canvas study is part of my reference work for a large 60 x 36 inch oil on canvas of this scene. The large canvas underpainting is waiting for me to move forward and this small study is egging me on. Yet, it is also time for it to set out on a home of its own as I begin to muse about other paintings that will eventually take its place in my small home studio.
