Ellwood Sunrise– Oil on Canvas 48″x36″

BigEllwoodSunrise

I haven’t made a painting this big for a while…  It was nice pulling out the thick, shiny oils and blowing up this moment that I caught in a sketch a few weeks ago.  I could never have made this from a photograph… one thing that has really dawned on me this year is that our eyes are so much more sensitive to a wide range of color and value than a camera.  It is good to know that some things are still best done the old fashioned way.
