"A Foggy Day" --- Sold


Since I am in the mode of doing high key paintings, why don't I go a little further? This painting does not have much of dark areas. You know I love to use dark value and colors to enhance the contrast. Well this one is the opposite. The value range is rather limited. All colors are very similar in value. The reason I did this is that I got opportunity to have many soft and lost edges. Impressionistic painters did this kind of thing a lot. But some of them went too far, and the forms went away. I want to keep my forms as accurate as possible, but the edges can be as soft as possible.

Love seeing the new colors!

This is great. Nice to lose the edges sometimes. You still ended up with great shapes. I love the fall scenes prior to this, too. I like the rich colors. :)

This has a wonderful feel. I like how you are trying new things, we have to be open to change don't we?

wow! what an divergent surprise. The high key seems such a contrast to the other paintings. The loose brushwork just makes it that much more of a fun ride. I love it.
