During the winter months, plein air is pretty much out of the question in the Northwest where it‘s usually foggy, raining buckets or snowing. This is a good time to experiment with art in the studio, maybe loosen up a little and try something I ordinarily wouldn’t think of doing.
I decided to pick a photo and morph it into something entirely new. I wanted something simple—one clear and single idea, one movement of light—something that could catch a viewer’s eye in a gallery window.
In the finished painting, the light is ambiguous. Is it morning or evening light? I’ll let the viewer decide.
