Oswego Creek Study
Every painter knows the moment when the right color, value, or compositional tweak sets in motion a successful endgame. Like a jigsaw puzzle. It`s an exciting turn in the process. In the two large paintings I`m working on, this keeps happening, then I lose it.
I`ll take a break and paint something else, usually small.
Hopefully with new insights, I`ll enter the fray again. There is a real sense of a hunt; predator and prey. With adrenaline even! The high emotional stakes are, of course, what makes it fun, or at least compelling.
