Tucked Away-6x6-SOLD


you'll recognize this from a previous painting i did when i was in the keys. liked it so much i did it again. this time in front of folks in the nags head workshop. i showed them how to lay down very simple shadow shapes and light shapes that were so simply done they looked like they were cut out of construction paper. then i went from shape to shape breaking one into two or three all the while correcting the shapes drawing and working on the edges. it went from a "cartoon" version to a finished painting in the last 1/3 of the painting process.

This is a very nice painting, Mike! Sounds like a good process that you taught-I think I will try it.
