This painting has not been shown. I thought I would post it to get some feedback. I usually don't work with landscapes but I really enjoyed the process of letting the paint do what it must. The intent was to represent the complexity, love, fear, and growth of a marriage. I currently am struggling with this style I have developed. I have been studying several old masters and other contemporary realist painters and have been feeling the drive to work in a more traditional manner. I have spent so many years doing photoshop illustration and I have always tried to do paintings I would never attempt in the computer. Having such respect for craftsmanship and a real ability to draw the human form, I am currently working on a painting of my wife with a more realist approach. I will be posting my progress.
