Daub du Jour

My name is Marianne Plumridge. I am an artist of mythic fantasy works and fine art images. More of which can be seen at my website, 'MariannePlumridge.com', and also my main Blog, 'Muse du Jour'. These sites are in the links section of this page. This site began life as a painting a day blog in 2007. However that project has now passed, but I still find myself painting in that way. So this site will now be the showcase my new paintings as inspired by those previous efforts.

More Rocket Doodles...

"Red Moon Rising"
(Oil, 5x7")   Price: $95.00    SOLD

Here are some more pointy rocket ship doodles.... From left over paint on the palette.
I wanted to experiment with other nostalgic colour themes and went with an almost pulpish feel to Red Moon Rising. I think it worked well for a such a quick little study. I'll be experimenting more with these colours and see what else I can come up with. I rather like this one.

"Ad Astra Too"
(Oil, 6x8")  Price: $95.00    SOLD

This seems to be another revisit to the 'Reach' colours from previous paintings. Since it's been awhile since I last painted, and I had these colours left over on my palette, I thought I'd do another one. Also, I wanted to paint the tiny birds again in the launch melee of smoke and drama. It was very popular last time, hence I added this painting to the 'Ad Astra' group instead of the 'Reach' group.

Colours were Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange Hue, Cadmium Yellow Light, and Titanium White. Although, I did add some Cerulean into the mix for 'Red Moon Rising'... Brushes included some teeny, tiny detail brushes, a 1/2" Flat, and a big fluffy blending brush.

I had fun with these. I hope you like them too.
