Clearing, Mugello
« back  : Clearing, Mugello , oil on paper (Arches Huile), 10.5x15 inches, 2013, Price: on request.

12-6-13: An image from the Mugello region of Tuscany that I've always liked, but finally saw how to turn into a painting. This is always the interesting part, developing or waiting for this sense of a priori transformation. Continuing with the idea of the slightly broken surface and painterly realism, but this time returning to an extended alla prima approach, meaning the paint is developed in one layer, but over several days. Still using the putty medium, no resins or solvents.
