This was one of more challenging paintings I did this summer. The only light source in the painting is the full moon, which was so dim that I had to turn off my headlamp and wait for my eyes to adjust to see it. Not only that, but I had to wait a month after doing the initial studies to go back and paint it.
I’ve spent some time away from my blog, but not painting. It’s a little embarrassing that my friend John Glover has more recent examples of my work on his blog than I do here, so here’s some recent work. Stay tuned, more to come soon.
I worked mostly on some larger (for me, most of them in the 4′ range) night time landscapes this summer. I only did a handful of them, but working on site with this scale is a little bit on the slow, labor-intensive side.
Here’s an out of focus hand-held photo of one of the paintings that earned my current exhibit a parental warning. At Eric Schindler Gallery through June14
