Old Towne Conch House-Key West-6x8-SOLD


this is another one that died on the emergency room table but was revived! you painters out there know what i'm talking about when i say one's DOA when you get it home, into the studio from out in the field. how is it possible that we think it looks good out there, till we look at it in the cruel unforgiving studio light. amazing what a few days of not looking at the thing does for your objectivity.

this one had all kinds of rust spots on the roof that broke up the light shapes into distracting little shapes. i put the roof back as one large light shape, linked a few darks to keep them as a whole unit too. that seemed to work saving this patient and kept it out of the round filing cabinet, better known as the trashcan.
