Day 13: Stockbridge study

Stockbridge painting

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.

  1. this is so spectacular. I love, love, love it. I’m hoping some day I can do stuff like this with acrylics. I haven’t even tried yet, still want to master watercolor first. visiting from AEDM, thanks for sharing your beautiful art.
