an exhibition of 2 month duration
As an artist there are many questions I ask myself before commencing a painting.
Why was I inspired by this particular scene, what type of mood do I want the viewer to feel by using colour , how to control the tonal values to show depth , how to lead the viewer into the painting .
There are many decisions to make during the process of thoughtful planning and sketching before my brush meets the paper. Then as I paint, those thoughts and emotions will flow thru my brush and onto the paper, hopefully communicating my feelings to the viewer and bringing everything together to create an inspiring work of art. -Alan
