Just putting the finishing touches on this one. It’s larger than I’ve worked in a while. I was driving around last Fall and saw this scene right near home. I liked the stark, graphic shape of the plowed field and the warm light of the evening sun on the distance. What intrigued me with this one was trying to capture the lighting on the background vs the foreground with temperature contrast rather than value contrast.
Finishing up another “small work” hopefully headed to the Kelley Gallery show.
Never been to Alaska. Definitely on the bucket list tho.
Continuing with the wildlife work – decided to research and do a bear. Never painted one before, but I love the way they move and the attitude they exude. Factor in some spectacular landscapes where these bruisers live and, well, hopefully a Minnesota boy who’s never been up there can do it some justice.
