TONALIST AND REPRESENTATIONAL FINE ART
Lake Sunset (oil on canvas, 32″x38″)
Gorgeous painting Maurice – I love this piece, it’s the best! Mary
I was wondering, do you take multiple photographs of your landscapes for your paintings? Or paint from your own vision? I would assume that with your mastery both have been a part of your development over the years. This painting, as well as all your paintings is so expressionistic, expressing your intimacy with your process.
Good to hear from you, Walter. When I’m photographing, I’m not thinking of painting, but the image is with me in the studio. I’m least successful when I try to “copy” a photo. I find it easier if I let the painting lead me back to the mental image. I’m sure, as an artist, you understand.
