Deeper into the Painting


The natural light has vanished for the evening, I’m fulfilled, having been granted an open day to paint thoughtfully, and now have a clearer sense of how I wish to finish out this composition.

This has been a revelatory experience for me, weaving layers of transparent wash, drybrush, and pencil drawing over the terrain of this island. It is taking a great deal of time, but I am in no hurry. There is a deep-seated contentment I feel as I work slowly over this project.

    This is coming along beautifully, David! I’m amazed as how you can put so much time and detail into paintings. It’s wonderful to watch! (I lack that level of concentration or patience…hehe)
