Painting " Stepping Stones"

Postby bergina » Fri Feb 08, 2008 4:37 pm

I hope I am not taking up to much space on this forum but if I am, please let me know. This is a painting I completed last year that depicts a typical Nova Scotia South Western coastal scene which usually includes some hard granite rock, ample sea-weed, a fishing wharf, some type of boat and surely some fog. This was a very complicated difficult painting for me and a real challenge but I feel good about the finished work.
Any comments appreciated.

A lot of work went into these rocks. The details and color are right, The water and sky give to this peaceful seen. The perspective is good. Everything about the work is very good.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Thanks John,
Actually the large rocks in the foreground were so much fun compared to trying to make the mid and background make sense, depth and color wise. I always paint back to front. For most of my paintings, making it to the foreground is always a big deal as I never go there unless I have all the bases covered. Without a solid back and middle ground, there is no point in going forward.
Thanks again John for your comments,
Al
