Original Creation

Island in the Sun - Bill Alexander

Dirk1968 06 Jul 2023

Today is the day when, after my recovery time, I finally found concentration and time to paint something again. I chose a painting by my favorite artist Bill Alexander. I adjusted the colors according to my taste but otherwise tried to stay close to the tutorial, with a little bit of artistic freedom.😎I think it looks a little fresher than the original but that's subjective.I can only recommend the tutorial, one where Bill is in top form.I hope the BA Touch is recognizable and you like it. This is my version of Island in the sun by Bill Alexander. Fresh from 30 minutes ago.

Canvas, 24 x 30 cm (9.45 x 11.80 inch), 2x white gesso, grinded 240/400, liquid white, Time 3 hours

No BR brushes but the BR knife
The second picture below is after a few days drying time



The BA touch is definitely recognizable. Beautiful work. Glad you're painting again.

Thank you Tomi πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺGlad you like it

So glad to see a painting from you! Beautiful job and that sky is beautiful!

I love it, lots of distance created. Weird that you posted this particular painting Dirk because I woke up this morning thinking I would paint a couple of islands in the middle of a river. πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ
