End of the skating season.. (2)


The Last Skate 2    11" x 14"    O/P

Look familiar ?  After living with the previously posted painting for the last week, I decided to paint another, similar to it. In the back of my mind, I wanted to emphasize more strongly, the light in the middle ground and the figures in it. I feel that the in the composition, the figures better emphasize the perspective from foreground to background. My intention was also to exaggerate the colour overall and to pay more attention to the foreground details, all the while, keeping simplicity in mind.

I feel that this 'second' painting is a much stronger than the previously posted piece.

'til next...

Lovely work. I think having a bigger figure in the foreground helps the composition, aside from the sunlight pattern.
