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.
