Here is the seascape after another days work. I hope to finish it tomorrow. This was again shot in the failing last minutes of light. Its not very accurate, but I will try to get a better shot after I work on it tomorrow. I am hoping that will be last day and bring it to completion. That will make this about a week (7 days) work. That seems about right to me for a project on this scale.
I worked on mostly the rocks today. I have got good color temperatures going in there but it is hard to see in this photo so you will just have to believe me.
I have received a couple of provocative e-mail questions about realism and photo realism vs. classical realism and impressionism. I thought I would spin out an essay on that in a few days. I also want to return to the subject of mathematical design systems as there are a number of more ideas I want to present. I started with the most philosophical systems and I am progressing towards increasingly geometric means of design.
I am going to be in a paint out event in Kennebunkport this week, At least on the days it doesn't rain. It isn't a wet paint sale per se, I am not fond of those. Maine Art gallery has invited a group of us to come up there and paint and do a group show. I will probably paint on the rocks along the ocean front which is particularly good there.
