This most resent piece is based on a photo of the Humboldt Park lily pond taken about a month ago. This was actually the second time I painted from this photo. This piece began as a demonstration piece for my intro to oil painting class. The painting is larger (11″ x 14″). Also, you will notice that the technique is slightly different. I used a brush! I have been using only painting knives in my other pieces, but since this was a painting demonstration I incorporated brushwork, Going forward I would like to incorporate brushwork a little more into my Chromascape pieces. While I would like to remain primarily a knife painter, I see no reason not to use a brush for contrast of mark, detail, or finishing touches. I had a lot of fun with this painting and am happy with the way it turned out!
