Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a mixed media artist who lives in Murrieta, California. I work in acrylics, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and other water and drawing media. My main subjects are abstracts, abstract landscapes, florals and gardens, equine abstracts and dog portraits. I love to use color!

Deep Purple Canyon Two, abstract landscape painting by Carol Engless

8 x 11 acrylic with pastel on paper. I really like peach with purple. I added the contrast color of red, and an unexpected highlight of light blue. I stared at this a bit and had to decide between yellow and blue - and the blue won out!

Carol, I love this - softer, & more subtle coloring - and a smashing design!! Melody

Thank you Melody! I need to do pieces with softer shapes - I can't just use line and charcoal! HA!
As always, I really enjoy hearing from you, friend!
