Summer II

More of That Summer Inspiration

I spend hours on Lake Tahoe in my kayak and rowing shell. Frequently I pass by this particular stack of boulders which always looks different depending on lake level, time of day and weather conditions.  The day this photo was taken was perfect!  Sunny, clear, calm, and a very full lake.  What could be better?

So now, into the studio to sketch, refine, and begin a new painting inspired by this location.

The boulders begin to take form on the canvas.

It's always fascinating to watch the boulders begin to appear and take shape on a blank canvas.  The painting begins to take on a life of it's own as my brush moves.   Never wanting to create a photographic likeness I strive toward a stylized impression of the inspiration presented in a bold composition.  These photos show how this painting is progressing and how it looks today.
