Rocks – Progress

This one’s nearing completion. I think. Some fairly major alterations since the last post. Really starting to be interesting from a distance and especially point blank.

I keep finding myself entranced by the effect of layering dark on top of light on top of dark, and how all the texture forces the brain to generate it’s own features in the landscape. I’m also quite happy with the choice to bring the sienna from the toned ground back into the foreground… Should be dried nicely in a week or so, at which time I’ll revisit whether I want to call it complete or not. Stay tuned!

  1. Love you work.
    Especially love “The Rocks Slowed Our Descent” . It reminds me of the Burren in the west of Ireland. I look forward to seeing more.

  2. Cynthia! Thank you so much! I apologize it took me this long to realize you had left a comment. Lots of updates to the site recently, so I hope you’re able to check it all out!
