I completed this oil painting about two weeks ago and got so wrapped up in my plein air painting that I forgot to post it. I am working with a set 40cm x 30cm canvas board at the mmoment and I really like the control I have over the whole painting. I wondered about putting a figure walking down the road then decided that the road was in fact the subject and dropped the idea.
2012 is my year of creativity and learning. I have been out of the blogging world for 5 months now all because I have been working very hard! Still life is not my favourite subject matter, but I started classes with Natalie Hirschman at the beginning of this year and this was our first class subject. I am learning so much and changing so fast it is mind blowing. I love it.
Jean, thank you. It was done from a photo my husband took but I did cheat and make the road wider in the foreground :) Isn't atrtistic licence great!
Thank you Carolann. I think you are right there, about the pathway through life.
Cathy, thanks for the visit. It was lovely to see another SA Artist's work. If you are ever in Cape Town, please drop us a line. Your drawings are amazing!
