"Moonlight Bay Memory" 11x14 oil on linen panel
Last week I painted for a local television channel for a show called 'Local Artisans'. I've done this several times over the past few years and its always fun and a good experience. This piece is what I did as my demonstration painting. I have one hour unedited to start and finish a painting during the filming so I usually and chose to paint something with strong shapes to keep the structure simplified. Even with a good plan prepared an hour is still pretty fast for me to paint an 11x14. I used a photo I had taken of the original plein air piece that I did in Door County last summer. The painting sold at the event so the best I had was my memory and a photo of the painting. Here is the end result!
