New painting started….”Beach w/Shadows” 60″ X 65″ Oil/Linen 12-28-2013
The image is thinly washed in, and I am looking for ways to handle the layers….of stones and shell fragment, shadows, light reflected off the surface and the focused bands of light making the linear pattern on the bottom. I hope to be able to find some clarity of this complexity, and to do it in a painterly fashion….NOT a centimeter by centimeter rendering of minute information. So I’m flailing around a bit at this point, but am getting some clues. The old Alber’s exercises of creating illusions of transparency are useful here! More soon!
