The Latest Landscapes
36 x 46
After many false starts, this picture was finally completed after two years. I was able to simplify the shapes and thus bring closure to the composition. I was fascinated by continuous changes within that particular setting- the continuous movements of clouds, changes in the reflections in the water and the ever-changing illumination on the trees and rocks. This version became my resolution.
30 x 40
I had this setting on the lake in mind for sometime and it was then when I came to the actual site that the composition was executed quite rapidly. This piece was inspired by the receding background, middle ground and foreground. The middle ground consisted of the uncontrolled purity of the environment and the rocks provided the foundation to this visual entertainment.
