"At Low Tide" after Edward Henry Potthast
"At Low Tide" after Edward Henry Potthast (4x4") - 201139 Subscribe now to receive my newsletter, "Even More". I am taking note of how difficult it is to nail down a bluish purple that is spot on neutral in terms of warm/cool. Not easy! My favorite part of this painting is the legs of the little one on the right. Just enough of an indication that they are there. It's easy to get caught up in painting 'symbols' of what one thinks a common, easily recognizable thing looks like. And of course once your mind is in that mode and concentrating probably too hard on what you think you see, the harder it is to stop yourself. Particularly true in rendering faces!
