Oh my what an usually odd period of time that we live in. Thank goodness I live in the country and I am allowed access the local trails. The painting above is one of my favorites. A glimmer of hope and light.
This particular painting was quickly painted on an old paper that was given to me, Strathmore is the brand, not a favorite of mine but at least I can practice on staying loose.
This painting was one that had me guessing to the very end. I often have to push a painting to completion. It has been my experience that painting is often not a straight forward process. Since I paint blindly, it is even more pronounced and I have to actively push a painting. I am looking for more than merely depicting a subject. I am striving for more.
A good example of my searching for more, the painting above was elusive and was in an ugly stage for weeks. I kept at it until I “saw” what I would call a Gloaming, a twilight or sliver of light.
An essential part of my approach is to capture the essence of the scene rather than focusing on the subject alone.
A fun colorful one, though I do need a title.
Last one of the group. Stay safe and positive, I know that this is asking a lot but I prefer staying on the side of positivity than not, more productive. Cheers!
