I was working on one canvas today and it came out completely, horribly, in every way the opposite I had planned. I put it aside and threw myself into this. I’m glad I did.
I washed my brushes, cleaned up my artist’s board, and started anew.
This image began as a photograph I took in Narooma, NSW, Australia. In the above three shots though, it’s clear I took this piece a few steps farther. This is a 12 x 15 1/2 inch canvas (1/2 inch thick). The image has been transferred to it, creating an entire new effect. This clear, Australian seascape has life to it now.
