It been a couple of cold January days which is probably what prompted the last two paintings
I really enjoyed doing this in pastels but it did present a few questions on how I was going to approach it. Painting is often answering a lot of questions before you start and then after you start. One of the things I do truly enjoy is losing the sense of time and place when I paint. It is just me, and the painting.
I used the same reference photo for these two paintings and I am planning on using it again today for a painting. Now the questions begin, how to crop – what medium – what do I want to say. And that is the just beginning. The most important question for me is what do I want my viewer to see and feel. It is always interesting to hear responses from the viewer so leave a comment and let me know what you see and feel when you look at these paintings.
Stay warm, it is another cold January day, a good day for creating more art!
