After working with the larger abstracts and square brushes, I wanted to return to the filbert brush and push paint around. The painting came together quickly as I wanted a plain air feel to the brush strokes. Finished with little fuss in two hours
After going through some old inventory I found this work. It was one of the first attempts at starting to abstract the landscape image and using the square brush. It looked very unfinished in comparison to my works three years later, so I went back into it to beef up many of the color passages and introduce a different pattern in the foreground.
This is the end result.
