New Studio Painting
'Chisago County Dusk' - oil on panel - 18x24 © Marc R. Hanson '09
Will be on view December 10-12, 2009 at the First Annual Christmas Show at Arts in General, Marine on St Croix, MN.
I haven't painted many 'sunset' subjects because they're like painting peak fall color... the real thing is so spectacular that it's hard to tame it with paint and still have it give off that same emotional punch of reality. None the less, it's a colorists', luminists', impressionists'... and all of the other 'ists' palette of pure delight! And has to be attempted once in awhile.
I only wish I knew what this looks like on your screen. I have two computers, both Macs, and it looks different on them both... and they're calibrated.
