Today I am putting up another new oil painting. In this piece I am trying to capture the late evening sky in Maine. I think I got a lot of it right but again the finish is elusive. I look back on several months ago and it appears I am making progress. I wanted to keep the darks really translucent but interesting so I kept lightly scraping the color off of the canvas, pulling the edge of the sky into the trees, the trees into the rocks and the rocks into the water, and I think this worked pretty well. The water is a touch confusing. “Ocean Point” 12 x 16 oil on archival panel.
Thanks for reading and I hope that you will register your email and keep coming back. I will keep showing watercolor, oils and the occasional abstract acrylic. I still want to work in acrylic but I really only work in an abstract direction when that is my total focus, it is like having something to say and then saying it. Right now I don’t have any ideas for a new abstract direction, but when I do I will break out the big canvasses and sing a new song.
