Oil on Linen
This painting is finally completed after lots of layers of glaze and opaque paint. It requires many, many sessions of back and forth with the layers, examining the effects between drying times. This is the painting I did from a photograph taken right outside my front door as the sun was going down. That is to say - it was inspired by the photograph. You can check it out here.
I'm gearing up for my solo exhibition at the Glen Ellyn Public Library for the month of September. I have quite a bit of wall space to fill up and I wish I had more tonalist work done at this point. But it looks like it's going to be half of my tonalist work and half of my impressionism work. Hmmm. I hope it doesn't look too strange!
