Windberg Style Bluebonnet Painting
In this prior blog post https://hagermanart.com/blog/dalhart-windberg-a-recollection/ I wrote about famed Texas Artist Dalhart Windberg and how he had an early influence on my art. Early on I tried to emulate his style, before embarking on my own way of painting.
After 30 plus years, I decided to try out the technique he employed once again in this Windberg Style Bluebonnet Painting.
It’s not as flawless in it’s smoothness as Windberg’s but then again, he had many years to hone his skills in applying this smooth brush style of painting. Currently this painting is available via my eBay auction. The painting is 8×10 and painted on a prepared cradled panel.
If you’re not familiar With Dalhart Windberg’ his work, here is an example. It was fun to do and I may just have to try this technique once again!
Beautiful, always admired Windberg and his art. Love the detail unfortunately my eye sight is not good enough to do the detail I would like.
You are definitely on an equal footing with your master. Your bluebonnet painting is exquisite, and the Windberg painting is an inspiration! Thanks for uplifting all of us…
Thank you Susan, I appreciate the compliment. Always glad that my work can be uplifting. I think if I do the technique again, I will work a little larger and get some magnification glasses!
I really love your style. The details in the tree alone is good. You even included the dead branch in the tree. The gate is open & almost leaning. Just like a country gate would stand. Your details are very good. Keep up your good work. I enjoyed your blog too.
Thank you Carolyn. I think painting the tree was my favorite part. Of course I think I say that about all the trees I paint. Glad you enjoyed my blog. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
William, I like the style and love the painting. Every detail!
Hi Karen! Glad you liked the painting and thanks for letting me know. Hope you’ve been well. Good to hear from you.
