This one was inspired by some of the Hudson River school paintings, especially one piece from Albert Bierstadt. Things started with a portrait mode painting with a fairy looking at the water, but later I realised the strong part of the painting was a small portion of the original. The subject also changed during the process. I’m still developing my painting style with lots of the inspiration coming from the loose style of Richard Schmidt. I’m currently rereading his book Alla Prima.
It was the first painting where I shared the process with my Facebook audience. For the painting steps of this painting and the future ones you can check the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/artofarisuonp…. Remember to like the page in case you want notifications for all the updates.
You have got a lot of skill with landscapes and colors. All your works are just so beautiful... like this one. Its a simple sort of scene... just a guy fishing... but his pose and everything make it seem like theres a real story behind it.
How I'd love to be in his place right now. The lighting effect is maybe the best part of this picture. It is really glowing. I also like the rough style of the trees in the background, that style is unique to you and gives a strong impression of old, gnarled spruce trees.
Hello! I'm back in your gallery once again! Well I cant help it because your art is just so addicting! I love how simple this looks and yet the impact is so strong. Brush strokes are amazing! I love how this turned out overall
I would really want to say that you have captured the atmosphere perfectly , the man's posture and "Stance" I call it looks extremely well done here . The colors of the late afternoon sky makes me go crazy , you are good man
I must say, out of all your paintings, this is my favourite one! The scene is outstanding, regarding detail, color and lighting! It looks very peaceful and it almost makes you want to be there as well, and grab a piece of that Heaven. I can't wait for new works from you!
I'm currently reading Alla Prima too, this book is a gold mine and a real eye opener Richard Schmidt's painting are indeed very, very inspiring, as well as a lot of his student's. I really like the shift in style you've been doing lately !
Oh my, I love the colors you used for this one, it gives an awesome atmosphere and feeling to the image on just that. I like the old 'stick and line' use instead of a fishing pole as well, normally I only ever see it with children, but using it with an adult is a bit different but still quite nice. Lovely work again
