Work in progress
The process of going from inspiration, to reference, to composition and completed painting is always about simplifying details and exaggerating simplicity. In this work in progress, currently untitled, composition and light are modified during the sketching and painting process to create a hopefully single focal point, but often more than one aspect of the scene needs to stand out. The unique angle and color of early morning light became the subject of this (despite the apparent focus of the dunes and fence).
