A couple of weeks ago I shared a tall painting that was in progress. This marks a new direction in my work over the past year. The tall, narrow format allows for a real emphasis on skies, one of my favorite subjects. (I’ve also flipped it to wide and short, as in “Spotlight,” the Appaloosa painting.)
Here is an update on the San Juan Island painting, which is nearly finished. The new one, depicting Mt. Rainier, is in the “roughed in” stage. It will get quite a bit more work in the foreground, and most likely some more color in the sky.
