Learn more about this Original Painting @ https://timellmers.com/2017/09/10/adding-to-a-memory/ DIMENSIONS: 16 x 20 in. (standard size for easy framing) MATERIALS: Painted in professional acrylic paints on a cotton canvas, stretched on a wooden stretcher frame, canvas has been gessoed with three coats to maintain cotton integrity, paint was mixed with my own personal concentration of acrylic mediums to give paint strength and adds to protection for years to come (gives a nice soft varnish look when dry). Painting comes unframed, but size is standard so will be affordable. (C) Burge Mountain Artworks, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Finally had time to finish the bigger version of my past study painting today, The Cloudy Stream (see previous post). With this update I made the stream more interesting and more realistic to what would one see on James Island. In doing the study painting I changed a few things on the second attempt. I had to say goodbye to the clouds. Instead I added a hazy mountain in the background which added more depth to the distance and atmosphere. Though James Island has no mountains, I gave myself the liberty to do so. All in all, I think it turned out okay, I stayed with the same color scheme I did with the study painting.
Below is a side by side comparison of my study painting and my updated painting that was based off my trial. Go big or go home!
