Watching a Breeze Unfold

TM9083 Watching a Breeze Unfold 36×54 oil on panel

More and more, my paintings are becoming studies of movement, sometimes water, sometimes air. Watching a Breeze Unfold is clearly the latter – a prolonged look at branches swaying in the breeze and a study in soft and hard edges. Close proximity of warm and cool colors is a second theme, one that evokes the liveliness of summer growth. These close-up studies from the ponds and creeks in the woods offer opportunities to paint realistically while “seeing” abstractly. What could be more fun? Details below. Enjoy.

  1. That is exactly what I seek in art, “opportunities to paint realistically while “seeing” abstractly” — you phrase it so well. Love this painting. It must be so beautiful in person.
