Ocean view #23
April 12, 2012
This is the last of the series. Repainting from photos was an interesting exercise. Early re-worked images had none of the freshness of the in situ work. The photos bound the image, somehow. Even as I tried to retain the freshness and brightness, this one, to me, still clamps on to it’s photographic origins. I look at it now and think I would compose it slightly differently if I was drawing it live, probably with less space at the top, and more water below.
