When starting a painting, I try to practice what I preach; composition, planning a center of interest and atmosphere. I start with important features first. Then I add more information, until the majority of the painting is established. Now I leave the work for several days or more. This break in the painting allows me to re-evaluate, and make changes, before I finish. The finished painting should contain high realism in the foreground and less information in the background. The end result; curiosity and stimulation of interest.
Gord Wilson will be next in the Gallery on June 16th.
