An Autumn Walk In The Mist

Here are a few of my latest images in my series titled - "An Autumn Walk In The Mist". The images were taken on our property Panther Valley Garden in Central Tennessee, a project I've been working on since 2012. A little over twelve years ago I began planting Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees throughout Panther Valley. The majority of these trees are Yoshino's but I did managed to plant 12 other types as well; including the Weeping Yoshino, Kwanzan, Higan and the Okame cherry tree. Today these trees are in fields and several of our paths surrounding our home and studio. These magnificent trees are spectacular in bloom, however their beautify isn't lost in any season. I particularly love the l

The Treasures Water Brings

The title of my latest painting is "The Treasures Water Brings". The artwork is a mixed media painting in which I used transparent colors and thinly apply them to the surface of the paper. This particular task is known as glazing. With this technique the surface allows light to penetrate the underlying layers below and light is reflected back, causing the pigments underneath to glow from the light hitting the pigments underside. This is what gives the glow to the surface or better know as luminosity. While there are many layers in this work, it is the last steps to the layering which are most important to the effect I'm looking to do. In the final steps, I mix oil paint and wax to form a tr

Walking on Water

In this Non-static Impressionism painting, I captured a moment from a hiking trip with my son George at a beautiful Tennessee State Parks in our local area. To create this blurred effect, there are no lines or definitive guides placed on the paper prior to applying the medium. Most styles of art first involve laying down a foundation of sorts to guide the placement of the paint or ink but not so with this blurred style. As children most of us can remember coloring within the lines of a coloring book page; not so with this impressionistic style. It is quite the opposite with the elimination of all lines. The image is laid down on the paper in a committed fashion as there is no turning back. A

A Mother's Kiss

India Ink (Airbrush and Brushwork) on Arches Paper, Size 18 - 1/8" x 25 - 1/4" By Eric Buechel 2017 In this latest ink drawing, I see an attempt to capture the essence of motherhood from the beginning point of it's beautiful journey. In this drawing, a young mother is shown tenderly kissing her young child. Although surrounded by less than ideal conditions, this mother has dreams and aspirations for her child to reach beyond the confines of his or her circumstances. This young woman could be anyone as every mother has these same dreams and aspirations for her child. A young mother viewing this could certainly relate as she is currently in this phase of her motherhood journey. And an older mo

Mecca

My latest mixed media painting is an aerial view of Mecca, in a desert valley in western Saudi Arabia. The large clock tower is called The Makkah Royal Clock Tower . Here I used colored ink and watercolor as a base color. It followed with an acrylic binder and over 12 layers of oil paint glazes. The edge is painted with a green tinted silver acrylic paint and the size of this piece is 21 - 1/2" x 26 - 1/2". Eric Buechel Fine Art/ The Bee Hive Atelier P.O.
