Oil/Linen, 60

Oil/Linen, 60″ X 65″

Finished! The photo is a bit too blue…and too dark at the bottom. I’ll adjust it later. This was a real challenge in observation and drawing. I work from a gridded photo source, but fitting the irregular shapes together is always difficult…but the act of observing and drawing allows for qualities to slip into the work which are both unexpected and expressive.

I see the thin grid lines are visible; I leave them to reference the process I use, and to quietly contradict the illusion of depth in the painting.  They produce somewhat of an animated view for the spectator.
