This first one is called "Burning Bridges" and i finished it in the fall. It's based on a picture I took of the sunset while going over a bridge near Newport, RI. Don't worry...I wasn't driving! I love the vibrancy that came of the colors I used. I always start very vibrant with my underpaintings. I do have a step by step picture series to show how this painting came to life and will be posting that soon! It's NuPastel on 9x12 Colourfix paper.
This is my latest creation. I'm not sure if it's completely done yet. I love the color and the way the rocks came to life. It's based on a picture from a couple summers ago of a beach in Clinton, CT. I really liked the way the landscape framed the umbrella and decided to remove the inhabitants. I'm not sure if I need to do anything to the far water underneath the trees... it looks a little pale to me, but I don't want to lose the depth of the painting. I don't have a name picked out for this one...but I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of "Summer Soldier". Please tell me what you think...I'd appreciate any feedback!
