Returning Home #2 - process

Posted on by Wess Foreman

This is a large painting - a bit over five feet tall. I was commissioned to paint it based on the painting Returning Home. It was a fun painting despite a lot of ancillary problems that came up during the painting process (several days of foul weather, an artshow, and an evil bout of lower back pain from which I am just now recovering). The slideshow, of course, shows some of the painting process. The photos are in order, but as you may notice, the painting took a circuitous route to completion as I experimented with different techniques, especially in the sky and trees.
