Day 13: Stockbridge study
Stockbridge study, 10x15cm, oil on canvas. [SOLD] Prints available here.
I have had the idea for a painting like this percolating in my imagination for a while now. I want to make cityscapes with a certain combination of abstract compositional elements and recognizable details. I think I’ve been worried that I wouldn’t be able to produce images that lived up to the ideas in my mind, but I’m actually pretty pleased with how this first study worked out. I’m especially enjoying how the new image incorporates bits of color and texture from the image I painted over. There’s something so satisfying about reusing an unsuccessful canvas.
It’s Art Every Day Month! Towards the end of the month, these new daily paintings will be available to purchase in my Etsy shop. Check out Leah’s blog for more information about Art Every Day Month, or follow the discussion on Twitter with the #aedm2014 hashtag.
