Technically most of the work was done in 2014, but I spent several days of the past week finishing up details on this painting. I’m not sure what to call them, or where they are going, but I’m definitely enjoying working on the larger scale landscapes.
They are challenging because of the amount of (or lack of) detail I want (am able) to put in. Keeping color temps balanced across the whole composition is also tricky. This painting – more than the large marsh painting – felt like a learning experience. I’ve already got another large canvas primed and ready to go, so we’ll see how much of the learning stuck!
The studio also got a clean up and re-org. Over the past 6 years plenty of stuff has accumulated and it felt great to purge things that were just gathering dust. I picked up two new lamps and two daylight bulbs, and figured out a more secure mounting for them.
