Hell Gate Bridge, 2009, oil on canvas, 12 x 14 inches
Remember this landscape? I had started this painting on site in the summer, and now I'm happy to say that it is finished. I think I had the most fun with this one, since it begun as a plein air landscape and ended as a studio painting. Trying to get the right blue for the sky was the most difficult, but after layers of Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Serves Blue, and Cerulean Blue, I think I got close to how I want it to be. I was afraid to ruin this painting, reason why I kept putting it off all the time. Tonight I was on a mission to get it done, and before I knew it, it was. Not sure where I'll go from here, but I can't wait to work on something new.
