"Morning Vista", 48" x 60" oil on canvas, 2007 Private Collection.
This is the latest in a series of paintings that I have done based on a smaller painting of San Miguel that I did on location. This one is a studio painting. I loved the way the town was back lit, fusing the hillside and buildings into a few simple masses. This one is a commission that I will deliver next week.
"Morning Vista, San Miguel", 11" x 14" , oil on board, 2006 Private Collection
This is the first in the series, done on location.
"Morning Vista, San Miguel", 30" x 40" , oil on canvas, 2006 Private Collection
The second painting in the series. Painted in the studio. I wanted to explore this idea on a larger scale. There is more detail added to the silhouette of the town. I also adjusted the road in the foreground to give a sense of where I was standing.
"Summer Morning", 30" x 24" , oil on canvas, 2007
This is the thrid painting of the series. This is also a studio piece. I wanted to try this in a vertical composition to see how it would change the feel of the painting.
