Double Take

Voy Kay
16 Dec 2020

Interesting one when you first look at it, very interesting one when you painted it!

Budget canvas 16"x20" was used and a lot of micro tape. Measuring was quite a hassle but manageable. For the big triangle, you just take 2/3 of width and heigth. For the smaller rectangle, use 1/2 of the heigth and 2/5 for the width. That comes closest to what Bob did.
Lots of brush cleaning to do here yet fairly easy painting in all since it was finished in 105 minutes.

Love these Voy, mountains look great and that sky, especially in the winter scene, looks like it's going to snow again very soon. šŸ˜ŠšŸ––

You know, I had the same thought about that snowy sky. The black and Prussian blue gave this a heavy look and only gently mixed xith the liquid white for a stunning effect!
This was painted last week and the missus thought this was my best of this month ..... until she had seen yesterdays' 'Fire lake'!!

Till next one!

Nice work, Iā€™d never seen this one. I do like that beautiful sky!

Love this Voy! It looks amazing.

Tom, this is really one for you to take on. I've seen what you can do with trees and bushes so that would go very well, and this recreation is really not difficult at all!

FVG, thank you! Next to the skies, I also guess the framing highlighted this creation. I used some 6mm tape for this.

Heather, you have no idea! In real, this simply looks twice as good. Also the lining is straighter since here, they show bended but that must be the camera's POV.

It's really hard to do justice to a painting in photos. I think they almost always look better in person. It is so much easier to drink in the details.

Indeed Heather, and it's also a fact that an oil painting gets better after i'd dried for several days!
Thanks for commenting and till next one!
