Re: Gray

Excellent, as usual. But Cape Cod is almost cheating: Isn't everything gray there?

Re: Gray

Great work Derek! I like this new direction- especially those areas that shift from warm to cool. Grays are the territory of mystery and power-

Re: Gray

Grays are nearly the most attractive colors, yellows have them beat but just barely. You have made gray look incredible here, and I see this market of paintings simply not have enough representation (and none of it half as good as what you have shared). Do you walk around with a camera at all times just seeking out references for these?

Re: Gray

Ken: thanks my friend I AM a man of mystery. Not sure it will be a new direction, but really a learning experience.
Delo: you know what? that sky is yellow in #2 and no matter what I tried I could not get it to post that way. I even saturated the yellow a bit in photoshop....no go.
So , imagine it with gray AND yellow good buddy. Thanks so much.
Derek

Re: Gray

What an interesting project, so difficult to pull off but you managed it....with style. For me I like the second one best.

Re: Gray

Hi Alan: the difficult thing was to get a variety of grays warm/cool as Ken mentioned; Thanks
Thanks Dave and Gary, my friends
Thanks Jess: the second one was the most fun. Lots of abandoned stuff in this part of Jersey.
Hey Paul and Kathie: thanks very much

Derek

Re: Gray

I really like the pov of the second one, and all the greens you added to the grey wood.

Re: Gray

Yes, I second Allison. The green in the eaves of the second painting is wonderful.
