Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This painting was done once....then re-done a couple years later. Composition slightly changes and colors intensified. Painted with many layers of color to get the intensity of color I wanted.

this is a large painting...(36x60" ) and a lot of the detail is lost in a small photo. It looks better in real life :)

WOW! This is intense-the fact that you labored so long to create this beauty is amazing. Are you classically trained? Isn't that process the same as the old Masters? I am trying to learn but the more I learn, the more I feel I need to learn. I would give anything to paint skies like this-absolutely fantastic!

I have tried to reply to Helen's comment, but it doesn't seem to be working...so I am replying by 'commenting' in the hopes that she will see this comment...thank you Helen for the uplifting words! I am not classically trained-self taught. Lots of hours put into painting (more than I would like to admit to :) ). It is somewhat like the old masters except I paint with acrylics and do layers of color more than 'washes' or 'glazes' of color...which are thinner layers of transparent color. It is similar in the build up of layers. Maybe more similar than I am aware of due to the fact that I am not classically trained. It is just the way I learned to do it through lots of trial and error. Mostly it takes a lot of patience to paint. You can do it as well. You just have to be willing to put in the time and effort and be ready to change and change again and again and again....etc. until it starts to look like something you like. At least that's what I do :)
