Lightness of Being

"Sunny Side"
4 x 4 oil on Gessobord

"Cherry Bomb"

"Natural Pear"
5 x 5 oil on Gessobord

I've been spending some time this week painting in natural light, as opposed to darker, more dramatic, artificial lighting.  This has been a great deal of fun and a good learning exercise.  Subjects bathed in natural light require different colors (especially the shadows and the color temperature.)

They feel lighter, brighter and more contemporary (as opposed to traditional.)

To purchase or bid on these paintings, please consult the Daily Paintworks widget on the top right side bar.  The image will be shown as part of the slide show and you can click on the painting your are interested in.
