|Dark Spring Afternoon Marsh Lake, Yukon, Canada 9 x 12 Oil & cold wax on cradled wood|
Here are some photos of the scene
by the side of the road where I painted the original sketch.
You could see the rain, luckily it didn't reach us.
I am finished with this painting.
It may need more value contrasts,
but the thing with CWM (cold wax medium) is
I will be able to go back in and change things.
Here is a great quote from Helen Frankenthaler,
a favorite abstract painter from the 1950's and 60's.
In 1994, during an interview with printer/publisher Ken Tyler,
“There are no rules,
that is one thing I say about every medium, every picture . . .
that is how art is born,
that is how breakthroughs happen.
Go against the rules or ignore the rules,
that is what invention is about.”
Thank you so much for checking in to view my art! I appreciate it.
