|Belleek woods 2|
I had time to do some more involved work. Did a similar forest scene way back in 2011. This one is smaller 12" x 10". Cant believe it has been so long since I tried the same subject in oils. From what I remember this one was a bit faster to work on. It still needs a bit of attention but that will be done at a more leisurely pace.

|After Hubert Robert - View of the Port of Ripetta in Rome|
Stumbled across this artist Hubert Robert by chance. What struck me about the compositions was the use of theatrical lighting. The work is a cappricio, an amalgam of multiple views juxtapositioned to make an appealing composition but not reflecting their true geographical location. When taking such liberties with the subject matter it makes sense to throw out the lighting rules and go for theatrical lighting. A greater treatise on this piece can be found here.
