Artist at Work (training painting)
conte crayon and gesso on a small gessoed canvas 10x10". yesterday i took a pic of the scene at low tide and today i took one at high tide. the sounds and 'feel' of Sunday morning reminded me of Venice. yesterday i placed a light blue to establish the large cool and warm shapes. it feels like Venice. what struck me most this morning is that the photos tend to flatten and elongate the horizontal shapes. the vertical shapes don't have the scale that i feel when placed within the 'cube' of space i stand in and use for reference.
