Abstracted Landscape I

POINT GALLERY  765 Santa Fe Dr., Denver, CO
Opening reception:  Fri., Dec 5  6-8pm
Exhibition dates:  Dec 2 - Dec 20

 After applying transparent washes wet into wet, and then drying the underpainting,  I began building color with  thick out-of-the tube watercolors including more opaque watercolors (as well as titanium white and neutral tint) all of which provided excellent coverage.  I used traditional brushes, a pallette knife, and the end of a paint brush handle to scrape, apply and slather on paint using an "impasto" and scraffito method.

Abstracted Landscape

Abstracted watercolor landscape on yupo by Janis Goldblatt. 10x14 image.  Yupo is an amazing slick surface that allows the colors to run together, while retaining a vibrant and intense hue.  A great way to handover "control" to the medium!

Pieces Of The Puzzle

Abstract painting by Janis Goldblatt in progress.....After painting landscapes all summer long, I had to go back to working on abstract pieces.  I find that the "mix" of representational and non-representational or abstract keeps it all so very interesting and fresh.    Also, changing my materials maintains a sense of exploration, excitement and seems to enrich the experience!
To purchase, contact Janis at

Path Along The Poudre and View Of The Cliffs

Both paintings were painted en plein air during Paint The Poudre event in Fort Collins, CO.  The show was overwhelmingly well received and I will look forward to participating again next summer!

Acrylic Abstract on Yupo In Progress

Acrylic Abstract on yupo in progress by Janis Goldblatt (18x14).  This painting has gone through a series of layerings and transformations using acrylic inks, fluid acrylic, and gesso blended with acrylic pigment; while applications and subtractions include brush painting, pouring, stenciling, and scraping .  It is an interesting and fun process.  I will post the earlier versions so you can see the evolutions....
