The last few years I’ve started painting many nocturne paintings from life. Which of course means staying up late! Sometimes till 1 or 2 in the morning. These are all paintings from 2016.
It’s actually a nice time to paint. Usually very quite. And of course the light doesn’t change!
Often I go back the next morning to the scene to refine the drawing and colors.
I’ve figured our how to do it better now, but they are incredibly hard to photograph. All of these sold right away at various plein air events, and so many of the photos have a lot of glare on them because of the dark colors. Recently, I’ve had some luck taking a photo at an angle to avoid the glare, and then using image editing software to pull the perspective flat.
- Of course I also sell my work. If your interested in supporting my efforts, you can take a look at my store here. Or contact me about any painting your interested in.
