Painted on gessobord.
This is a painting I made using video instructions from Richard Robinson. The video was an early Christmas gift to myself. I posted the photo I painted from below. The goal of the assignment was to paint a spot light affect hitting the main focus of the painting. Richard's painting was very powerful so I thought I would give it a try. I added a frozen puddle to the foreground to point the viewer's eye to go behind the truck and notice the path to the field. It does take some attention away from the truck hence weakens the spot light affect but I feel it adds to the composition. I think the compromise was worth it.
