Two Representational Paintings Done at Creative Arts Camp
While I was on the last leg of finishing the pastel painting above, I saw the remarkable light over my shoulder past Cherry Island. I quickly signed and abandoned the above painting which I had worked on over the course of three mornings and grabbed my oil paints and quickly painted the amazing cloud formation temporarily in the other direction.
Interestingly, I like the oil painting below which took an hour better than the painting above which took more time. It is easier to catch momentary lighting when it is not averaged over hours or days!
