Fine Art Print, 30″ x 24″, House Reflected. See About Prints
This is acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas, 30″ x 24″ x 1.5″. This was a house on the hillside in the last light of the day, in early November. I was walking with my daughter watching the sunset, she taking pictures with her iPhone and I with this Canon DSLR. The barely visible windows and the house taking a secondary place to the sunset – houses built into the hill like this hold attention during the day, here it is barely present.
The photograph was darker, the house more indistinct.
The process was to sketch in with pastel, then using those basic lines as a guide, airbrush in a primary color underpainting. On top of that went the acrylic paint, placed with painting brushes rather than brushes. This paint was placed in thick layers. The painting was gestural, feeling through where the light would reflect and land.
