Oil On Panel
I have worked on this since I posted the scale photo! The single image is the correct one!
This painting is a rework of one I did last year. I could not figure out what had me unsatisfied with the painting until I had a summer of painting under my belt again.The painting was nice before but lacked a certain amount of detail that I have added in this more recent version. It is my vision of the Cowpasture River from above and I finally feel I have nailed the look of the summer fields from a plane, or in this case, a helicopter, that helped me see closer, and more accurately what I wanted to convey.
I LOVE to work large. The problem comes in when I try to move them. I literally cannot hold this painting alone because yes, it is heavy, but my arm span is not big enough. Which can make for a challenging time when I am even painting it much less trying to photograph it. Thankfully I am married to someone a little taller and willing to help, It made me realize how key it is to take photos of the paintings in an actual space because I was convinced it was going to be too big for this space and in fact, is perfect. Painting large is one of my favorite things but there are so many hurdles to doing it that I only really let myself do it about half the amount I would really like to with the challenges it presents.
