bay views pt 9


I was struggling as usual on this one. I found out really quick as I was painting that tree bark has so much subtle color variation (most of which I couldn't capture). Then when I ran out of time on the painting I noticed the contrast was much higher in the shadow vs. light category...

Just when you think you've kind of tackled one area correctly, another one slaps you in the face..

Next time I'll bring a bigger thinking cap.

well, the better you get, the more you can see what you cannot capture, right? nature is infinite. hey, i just said something artistic. give me claps.
this high key painting reminds me of your old fig. paintings though. so you gave me the vibe with the painting instead of background. woofoo.i see.........b.

it looks great man, I like how I can see into the shadows, and how it makes me feel as if my eyes are opening up to take in the more subtle color and tones that I otherwise wouldnt if I was looking directly into the light. (something i've been eager to experiment with more lately grr!)

woofoo indeed.

cheers

this is jawdropping. the temperature shifts are great.

Wow, I love the fluid gesture of your brush stroke shapes. I Like how you composed your masses.

Yeah, I like the subtle colors too. I wonder if the hard light areas of the surfaces loses detail because of the "glow" or "screen" effect it has on our eyes. Perhaps the iris shrinks, reducing the amount of light/info on intensely bright spots, and opens wider when focusing on the darker areas.

This mystery will haunt me till the day I die:).
