I’ve been painting a lot of horizontal compositions lately. Not intentionally but “landscape” orientations often come naturally when painting landscapes. I decided my next painting would be vertical, that is, a “portrait” orientation. Well at least that was how it was going to start. Here is the latest on my easel, it’s still a work in progress.
I’m finding that I’ve been really interested in edges lately in my painting. I’m not talking about the outer edges of the piece, although those can be interesting too, I’m talking about where shapes, colors, and lines meet.
As the painting neared completion the foreground cliffs were still mostly intact
I hesitated at first
But I knew what I needed to do…
