Topanga Autumn, Early Morning Plein Air, part 4

We call it Dragon Rock. The gnarly sandstone formation just a short hike up Cheney Ranch Trail. If you step off the main trail and onto the footpath it will take you to the very top that resembles a big glob of dry clay and has multiple little caves and holes. Prehistoric rocks that were polished by rivers long gone are trapped in it. These rocks are the remnants of a mountain range that used to dominate the Eastern part of Arizona. High cliffs on the south side of Dragon…

The Children of China

This is a short video I created that depicts my concept of painting a series of images based on a theme.  in this theme, The Children of China, my intent was to depict the spirit and subtle passion of children in the countryside in modern China.  Using an impressionist and colorist approach I place the viewer in the position of dwelling on the children, imagining what their inner world is truly about.  I choose to not overtly communicate "passion" but rather, allow the viewer to "be there"…

“It’s Just Paint and Canvas” By Rick J. Delanty , 2015

“It’s Just Paint and Canvas”

2015

By Rick J. Delanty

www.delantyfineart.com

 

   What is the true” market value” of a painting? How does a potential collector know that a fair price is being offered? After all, the price can be negotiated…It’s not like a car, a stereo system, or a suit jacket that contains technical components and can be shopped between stores. It’s only paint and canvas, right?

Topanga Autumn, Early Morning Plein Air, part 3

This early November morning I headed down the road to a location nearby: Penny Road. This is one of my favorite morning views of Rochemont Rock. Back lit by the rising sun, this sandstone formation and the surrounding chaparral look very inviting for a plein air painter. Once again it was a Santa Ana condition with very crisp and clear air. This is the time when the morning colors are strong and contrasting. …
