dipytch, oil, in process
This diptych has been on the easel for a couple of weeks. Each day I have painted and rubbed out most of the work. The glazing combined with scraping and rubbing has made richer, more complex color. It's especially noticeable in the reflections in the water.
This painting was inspired by all my work at the slough when I was in Washington State this summer. These links will take you to the pieces that inspired everything: link 1 , link 2 , link 3
It's funny that while I admire the quiet colors of the Tonalist. I will never be one, it's simply not in my heart. My colors are just different.
Thank you to everyone for all the votes I received about which postcard image. I will take votes till Saturday and then send the image. So if you haven't had a chance, please give me your feedback. K?
