Summer Paintings

August 07, 2014

Photography and painting are are otherworldly experiences, each requiring a sharp eye on the subject. What I've learned from photography I apply to painting and vice versa. Understanding the flow from dark to light, noticing the fading edges, finding the balance. It can take a long, long time for all of those components to become instinctual. As such, I am self-taught. I learn from workshops, much more experienced painters, books and YouTubes. I paint on my sun porch surrounded by the scenery I've so often photographed. Sometimes I paint fragments of that landscape and sometimes I'm  inspired by a photograph or another painting. I start with what moves me, then my imagination takes hold.
