Sunday Sky

Sunday Sky

Oil on wood form
16"x 60"x 10"

This panoramic painting is on a curved surface. I paint from reference photographs, and I shot this picture on a beautiful Sunday a couple of summers ago. The background happened as a result of shooting the reference shot when it was on my computer screen with my camera phone and a strange resonance effect occurred. It was a result of looking for something else and some experimentation in the reference that I got this effect, a kind of happy accident but one I was looking for. Translating it to paint turned out to be harder than I thought. But the way light effects a subject wether natural or manufactured is something I am interested in.
