5" x 7" acrylic
Detail has always appealed to me. I can spend hours creating tiny strokes with a pencil or brush to make minute progress. So completing this little painting of a curve in a tributary of the Salmonier River held endless interest for me.
The process of creating something from broad strokes of colour down to individual forms is a challenge and very enjoyable. I'm looking at the next challenge for a new piece that will test my patience and ability. I came across the art of Sadie Valeri. Her still life pieces with exquisitely painted glass and paper fascinate me and also inspire me to try my hand at a similar composition. It may take awhile for me to find the right composition and props (having a friend in the antiques business helps).
I would like to film the process. Of course I anticipate the painting will take time to produce so a speeded up version of the process would be required. A little experimentation is required before I jump into this, so stay tuned.
