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.

Red Saturn Run...a new painting.

Red Saturn Run
(aka Red Saturn Flyby)
(9x12", Oil) Price: $175.00 SOLD

I painted this as a part of my new paintings for a science fiction convention art show. The idea came from my little notebook that the last few painting thumbnails have been scribbled in. Pretty simple in its effect, almost monochromatic. But very evocative of the retro rocket nostalgia that's been gripping the SF community in recent years.

The palette was limited to: Burnt Sienna, French Ultramarine, Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Yellow Medium, and Cadmium Red Light.

Note the tiny moon at the far right hand end of the sliver of Saturn's ring...

As usual the photo doesn't do the original painting justice - a lot of subtlety is lost.

So. More paintings to get ready for the next art show next month in New York...
Come back soon,
