Backlit Harrisburg

8"x10" oil/linen
It's interesting. The more I challenge my own thoughts towards observation the more abstract the work becomes. I start to feel space and total disregard for what is actually there. At least literally. Doing plein air work I get an overwhelming feeling to catch light and apply basic things learned through study. Intuition is king.

Yet there is detail in your painting and I think that much is very important and keeps it all together very well. Nice balance here.

When intuition is king, those are the best paintings, in my opinion. And it shows in Backlit Harrisburg. It's abstract, yet captures the light beautifully!
