Painting from Photographs - A Ditch in Concord

March 31, 2015

It’s been winter for what seems like forever.  Does that mean I stop making my beloved landscape paintings?  Not at all.  These are the months that I’m grateful for a trusty camera and long dog walks.

 

This week the source material for a painting is a photograph by my talented friend Barbara Aiello.  I chose this photo “because it looks good” – and then decided to break that down for myself.  I like the structure and relationship of the elements.  I am inspired here to use color to move the eye around the canvas.  I think the content lends itself to some non-traditional application of paint.  Subject-wise, my landscape architect self likes the contrast of the dying plant material and the presence of life-giving water.  What more could a painter ask for?
