"As the Water Rises" 6x6" Pastel on sanded paper
A few weeks ago, a new blog "Subject to Interpretations" was created for the Portland Plein Air and Studio Painters for sharing painting experiences. The inspiration comes from the incredible concept of Karen Jurik and her successful Different Strokes blog. "Subject to Interpretations" is intended for the Portland group to express and converge online.
Here's my interpretation of the first bi-weekly photo reference. Have you ever noticed when you put an image on the screen, the work looks entirely different and more often you can find the boo-boos in the piece? Looking at this online I find that I need to make some corrections by suggesting the distant trees' reflections in the water. Later, I say, later.
