#155 Summer Days on the Island" (10x10" acrylic on canvas AVAILABLE link in bio)I have always been drawn to the way light interacts with transparent fabric. This scene from Monhegan Island, Maine captures just that. I am beyond delighted with the perceived movement and transparency of the sheets on the clothesline, blowing in the salty breeze.This painting represents a subtle but intentional shift in my style from super tight detailed work to allowing the paint to tell more of a story with less detail. This does not mean sloppy, or carless, but quite the contrary. I find it requires more thought on the pallet, how I load my brushes so that each stroke can work to tell the visual story with less detail, this allows the viewer to fill in the rest.
