Study oil on linen 6x8
Oil 16x20 on wood
Something I rarely do is a larger version of a small one. The little one was done six months ago and while I kind of liked it I thought it wasn't quite right. Recently I lightened the sky and boom it came together in a way I liked. That to 3 minutes... I was so full of energy on it with no place to go, I decided to do a large version. When I was done I thought the sky was to green and worked purple into it and kind of killed it. Tony Peters was by and he commented the sky looked cool green so I went back and chopped it in a third time, I hope that was the charm. I'll post my artist I like soon.
Australian war artist Ivor Hele... Perhaps the greatest artist you have never heard of. Painting and drawings that are unparalleled the scope and power this side of the old masters.
