Rocky Outcropping, 36 x 24
Rocky Outcropping (original study), 8 x 6
This jagged wall of rock provided such an interesting contrast to the soft, billowy, big-sky clouds that hovered above it. My original study was a quick response to the dropping light at the end of the day. Back in the studio, I found the re-creation of that feeling to be far more difficult. The larger piece needed more information and the silhouetted rocks just misbehaved... but there you have it. Some births are harder than others.
