View Full Version : an island wip
challenging myself to do recognizable justice to this piece
always been a fav of mine and i've got a 36x48 canvas kicking about that i might use if a smaller prototype works
this one is 20x16
recognize it yet? :cat:

I studied this painting in Art History...all 5 versions
I think this would be a great subject for a large canvas, I am liking what you have done so far
thanx for sharing this with us

Maybe try a variation on Bocklin with your work rather than a copy?
You could add some of your particular magic

Like what your doing here with the flowing colour and stillness in the water. Island looking a bit squashed? Better to take it closer to edges either side to give more room for trees? Arnie
2nd layer ...

Coming along nicely. I like the touch of mist on the trees.
thanks for watching guys ... here's the third coat - almost done, just a bit of tweaking to do (paddles, rower, shadows n such) ... suggestions welcome for anything else that bugs you ...
