SOLD-Streaks of Light-6x6

Streaks of Light-6x6
this painting is all about getting the value relationships right. this one was done from a plein air study of a beautiful sunset in key west this past winter. i'm still amazed I get to wear shorts in January and February!
the plein air study was quick and I made sure I kept this one as loose as that one
love the way the two pieces of bright yellow and white light at the ground level of the buildings look like theyre coming around something.
a stroke here and there and next thing you know you see sailboats moored at the dock. well it helps that ive painted hundreds of sailboats so I just imagined what they would look like in this light key. "paint, paint, paint" gets lots of this type of raw data in the old brain banks so you can access it when you need it

This is fantastic!
I've grown to love creating the one stroke at a time painting. Watching the elements emerge just the way you want them to is rewarding.
