This painting was difficult for me. First of all, I had no idea what I was getting into. This painting tried my patience to such an extent that it actually cured me of my Attention Deficit Disorder.
It was my first time working with a canvas of this size, my first sunset, my first waterfall and my first attempt at sunset illumination. I quickly discovered to my dismay that here was no short cut to achieving the look and feel I was after. I had to paint out each and every tree and branch then go over them again to add lighting and dimension. The trees alone took nearly three months and I swear the canvas was growing larger with every stroke.
At times, I could hardly paint for five minutes strait without wanting to run out of the house...
35 Year old husband and father of four. Self taught painter and aspiring writer. Just completed my first book (600 page horror fiction) and am working on the final pass before submitting my query letters. Wrote a poem as an introduction to the story. The poem is titled "Abandoned" which was published by Tryst. You can see it here http://www.trystlitmag.com/poetry
My book (titled "Kane") will be available in e-book form by summer of 2015 and hopefully soon after, in hard cover.
