Study After Dwight William Tryon

dracula 17 Aug 2020

This is a study after "Fall Sunset" by Dwight William Tryon, probably painted sometime around 1900. This study is 12x16in (30x40cm) on panel mounted with cotton canvas using Maroger medium.

I really liked the look of the original and thought it would be nice to do a study with this kind of use of complementary colors.



How long did it take to do this? The details are well done as usual.

Amazing texture! This maroger is really good! I think it is absolutely amazing impression of night!

Thank you both, I really appreciate it!

@Jin7, I'm not sure how long exactly this painting took, but it happened over four sessions:
1. black sketch on toned panel, just for laying out the major shapes
2. bulking in the sky
3. bulking in the land + some detail
4. details

Dear dracula
Thank you for the information.

I took a look at the original and compared both. Your version is extremely close. I had trouble telling them a part. Awesome work!
