7x5in oil on canvas board 90.
This was done with a palette knife and it is partially imaginary.
With this type of diffused light I made sure that I made close value changes. Without bright sun there are no distinct contrasts and shadows, only gentle transitions of different tones.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
