Backyard Landscape

Posted on by Wess Foreman

Backyard Landscape, 14x11", SOLDI was carelessly swiping paint onto this canvas in order to cover up an unfinished painting which wasn't working for me. I was just trying to cover it up with greens and blues when it turned into something recognizable---a landscape---then I added shadows and the sky and dripped in some color and scratched in some detail. Before long the painting was finished and I luckily put it away to dry before I overworked it. Wish I had a better title for it.

Looking at the finished piece, it is recognizable as a landscape while retaining its abstract qualities. It is subtle but interesting, I think.
