#146 Landscape Impression
5"x7" oil on masonite SOLD
Sorry I couldn't think up a better title, but this does seem really impressionist for me. I was really trying to capture the light key with this one. I think I caught the relationship though I believe it came out a little warmer. I keep struggling to get the initial flat masses correct and it didn't seem to start reading as the same light key until I really added lots of variation. Gotta work on that. I really wanna nail the light key in the big flat masses before moving on to variations. Then it's just a matter of not destroying the established key. Have I been reading too much Hensche or what? BTW-I highly recommend Hensche on painting and Hawthorn on painting (cape cod school). I can't stop reading them over and over.
