….was finished this week after a bit of a rework – not a major one though. Mt Taranaki, which I must confess I still think fondly of as Mt Egmont is a volcano on the West Coast of the North Island in New Zealand. Here is the painting in it’s various incarnations.
The Underpainting ……
Is it finished yet?
A bit more tweaking is required.
It is interesting, the evolvement – is that a word ( I wonder), of a painting. Why take the trees out and change the light . The question becomes – what is the painting about. As soon as you put a poplar tree in there, the hand of man is felt. It is a distraction from the essence of the landscape. The painting is still about the light, but more subtly. It is about the bones of the land, it’s magic and it’s majesty perhaps….. or it could be about something else entirely – as the viewer – you must decide.
