|View from the train window 10"x8" oil on board|
I treated this painting as a little study keeping in mind a few goals: simplify, use big brushes and plenty of paint. I wanted to give the feeling of what we would see from the train window and make it simple and almost abstract as you would only see this for a second or so.
To unify the whole painting and enhance the bold brushstrokes, I applied a glaze of raw sienna with liquin original once the painting was dry.
Here is below the original photograph:
I applied a photoshop filter to it to simplify the scene and get the essence of it and only used this as a reference when painting:
I like to see this painting in a frame as I think it frames it just like the train window would.
