Once again, my colors are done in by my camera and the browser!!!! Drat! My apologies. However, you will get the rough idea of what it looks like. This is a break-thru painting for me, because it really captures my impressionist style, and not the reflection of other painters and other periods. This is pure me. The light browns in the smoke are flat here due to the photography and uploading, but in the painting they fade nicely and have more detail. One problem is a light bulb doesn’t reflect all the colors like the sun. I’ve been fussing with the acrylics for a long time and finally (today) I decided I might as well let acrylics work for me than against me, so I skipped trying to make them look like oil and went in with a large brush and globs of paint and started throwing it on and let my intuition take the color where you see it. Again, all comments good or bad will be appreciated, I only wish you could see it in person because many of the weak areas in this photograph just don’t appear in the painting.
My intent was to make the viewer see the thin blue line, alone, in a desolate, post apocalyptic kind of scene that underscores this pointless destruction when civilization breaks down. It wasn’t meant to pretty.
