March Painting Marathon - Day 26
Watch the video... it really shares what I was thinking...
Day 26 - short video
The Canal. oil on canvas. 30 x 44 inches. March 26th, 2013. Price: $2000
tried to just suggest the roof. Wanted the paint to be paint.
it started to hail... ice pallets started to fall... so I had to stop...
so I never put in all the flags on the poles.... I decided to leave it without the flags
so that it woudl be true to the experience and give insight to Plein Air painting.
This photo does not do justice to the texture of the ice and water.
I was so proud of this section of the painting. The painting must be seen in the flesh.
Really was happy with the results. The paint ... you just want to eat it.
Process or stages of the painting:
just putting in the sky and basic form / composition of elements
starting to put in the water / melting of the canal and tranparent sections
Finished painting / photo taken on location
