"What I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house."
― Edward Hopper

In Progress | Sunset #12

This is the underpainting for Sunset #12. Two routes this will end up going – I’m thinking that working with the texture of the canvas I might be able to scrape away and get the translucent canvas feel of the umbrella, the changes in light behind it. The other alternative would be to layer on the thread texture on top of thicker paint bringing through the sunset.

Each painting presents its own problems – this one is communicating the coolness of shade, the heat just beyond in the sun, the sand and reflected light, and a sense of space despite the fabric in the way.
