A combination of ideas from different photos, yet it is still made kinda by heart, which makes things harder for me. I wanted to have a dynamic composition with a sky at the background which takes the biggest area in the whole composition, then with the dry shrubs in the foreground, I thought I could bind the foreground and background. For the sense of the viewer standing at a higher plane, I added a road down there with some trees along.
That is a commission work, which was asked to be in light colors. So I tried again to have something light. Progress of the painting.
It starts with a quick rough sketch on the canvas, then moving to the background, then the middle ground, then to the foreground, etc. And this is me messing somewhere around sunset time, guess why the progress is so slow :p Done!
70×100 cm oil painting on canvas, 03.2020.
It’s pretty hard to find a title sometimes. So it is just Shrubs&Sunset.
Closeups: From the left up. Moving a little down from there. This is somewhere in the center of the painting.
Right down part.
Right down corner, initials, and date.
Besides the idea behind it, and some nice details, I have a strong sense of suspicion about this piece in some ways. After all, it feels safer to stick to just one photo and completely be based on it.
Drop a comment and please let me know what you think about it.
Be safe&have a nice day!
