In a further move towards Impressionism and larger scale works, today I completed Blast Furnace. I have plans to craft several impressionistic pieces revolving around singular colors and sensations. Blast Furnace is designed to evoke overwhelming sheets of stifling heat. Below is a detail section of the painting.
I’ve had such a good response to yellow sail, which is not available, I wanted to recreate it but instead produced sailing into the waterspout thus proving to myself how mercurial my painting impulses are. But to my surprise I had forgotten that I had done an earlier study of yellow sail. That piece, now entitled full sail, was six times as wide and much more comprehensive in scope though calmer in emotion. Therefore I decided to finish off that piece. On the website you can see more detail and some examples of how full sail might look framed and matted.
