A study of a cement retaining wall at the backside of a rock quarry. Perhaps one I will turn into a painting at some point. With a couple of commissioned projects in the early stages, so many current series going as well as some new ones planned for 2011... I'll be busy. So as of now I don't know if this will see the light of day in paint, but we'll see.

Vigorously drawn, focusing here on the arrangement of values, referred to as a value comp or sketch.99

Focusing here on the arrangement of values, referred to as a value comp or sketch but with a bit more information than a thumbnail.

The key to making this otherwise simple subject of concrete wall and railing exciting was to instill some action in an inactive, static image by using vigorously drawn strokes swirling around the center and not being too literal with the depiction of trees and surrounding landscape.
