A landscape that exists only in my imagination. Lesson learned: it’s hard to make sense of light and colour when there’s no reference (i know that’s obvious to the point of “duh!”, but sometimes the idea of a painting is so strong that I just want to give it a try).

  1. “Atmospheric” — that’s exactly what I thought. Something so soft and ghostly about this piece. It feels misty and cool to me and therefore welcoming, especially in the belly of a hot dry summer.

  2. Great result! This is the most daring way to paint, I think. I hope to summon the bravery to try it. I read that Gauguin was a staunch partisan of painting from memory rather than from visible subjects.
