2014: in oil & graphite.
Democracy and freedom tiananmen square.
I’m looking forward to working up a 2 x 3 foot, cloudy, winter day painting of this site.
Currently on the easel… I’ve long been fond of this particular view of a cluster of trees out near the tip of Great Head in Acadia. 24 x 36 is a larger piece than I am accustomed to painting although I am finding the larger scale to be very appealing.
It was a very quiet day out in the park. This may have had something to do with the fact that it was cloudy dark, 34 degrees F and very windy. The weather has turned. I look forward to sketching in the dark rocks that punctuate the shoreline.
I am a few sessions into this drawing. The weather is getting colder and the beach is quieting down.
A small, relatively quick one. Dimensions to follow… and perhaps an image shot in some better light.
Edit: a newly updated shot, but I am still lacking a decent photo. Perhaps soon.
This was done both out on site in the park and finished up in the studio. The site is one of my perennial winter favorites although the light on the south wall of the Precipice changes with somewhat alarming rapidity.
