August, Near Otter Cliffs, 16 x 20 inches, oil on linen
I’ve been working on this view for a (very) long time. Several times I felt close, only to lose my train of thought and have the painting slip away. Interesting.
I’ve been re-thinking carious aspects of my work habit. It’s been very helpful in streamlining and making my painting process more directed.
Working from ad drawing
I’m interested in making paintings based on drawings done on-site, from direct observation. I’ve been looking at Rockwell and Leyendecker, thinking about their methods for using drawing to provide strong, clear structure to the final painting.
