Amy- Do you mind scanning a close-up of your work? Your brushstrokes are so dramatic and I would love to see them up close.
Nice peice.

I love the subject, Amy, and the composition....but, you know I love colors, and this to me is almost monochromatic. I would venture to suggest that a bit more color variety could add more interest. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I am shocked Rita! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif Seriously, I have been doing more monochromatic work latley. I like to switch gears (probably too much to get me anywhere) alot. I feel it keeps my work more lively. The scan of a 4x4 foot piece with a crappy web cam, of course, obliterates the subtle color variences that exist in the piece. although it is very close to being totally mono.

That's a swell picture alright. Did you do this on site? You're very fortunate to live near the ocean....bob http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I did not do this on site. I did it out of my head. I do love living near the ocean. I do not get to see it as much as I'd like. My kids keep me tied down! They will all be off to college in 15 to 16 years though, so I'll see the ocean again soon. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I love this one, Amy. Why did you register a new name? Scherer?

I was attempting to get into the chat and could not. Cindy said she signed on with a new name to get in. So I tried it. Didn't work. Then I tried again wiht my old name and it worked. Now I am trying to use my old name again. It is case sensitive I guess I was having trouble. But I'm back.

I can feel the power of the waves Amy. The water is full of movement. Very difficult to achieve. Well Done!

Well, I must have missed this the first time it came around. I'm glad it was revived. I really like this! Have you done any more along this vein, or from this bird's eye perspective?
Truly nice, Amy....Congrats.

thanks all.

mame, this is about two years old, I think.

it is made up of diagonal lines, similar to the strokes in the red ink bird image. its so much diff in real life, the color actually takes second seat to the "construction"

AmyH, I love big works. I as well saw this on your page and am glad you have posted it in the form. My hubby and I have spent time in our boat on the ocean; this is exactly a swell cloaked in darkness. I love it. Great movement and mood.

i think the direction of line is important to the life of the work

AmyH

guess i should add, behind the lines creating the waves, are long turpentine drips, and behing them, is a very large (2.5 ft of the canvas) drawing, in oil, of the human heart, details, details, details.
